"I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant", she told CNN's "State of the Union" in an interview scheduled to air on Sunday.

The UNC-Chapel Hill community are also submitting signatures through a more secure Google form.

Brett Kavanaugh has been sworn in as a U.S. Supreme Court justice, a jurist who could give conservatives a solid 5-4 ideological edge on the country's highest court and shape rulings for decades.

But after a failed bribery scheme and multiple threats against her office, activists have upped the ante with calls to boycott the entire state of ME until Collins is out of office.

Collins announced she would vote yes on Kavanaugh during a 40-minute speech on the Senate floor. She is widely published, works as a research consultant, and teaches at Palo Alto University. It was very unfair to the judge, and now I can very nicely say, Justice Kavanaugh. Several signers listed their names as Donald Trump, Kanye West and Christine Blasey Ford.

"I am so disappointed and angry at her", Tesar about the embattled GOP senator.

That process is over. "My focus now is to be the best justice I can be", he said with his wife and children standing nearby. Liberal-leaning voters failed to show up-again-and Republicans took control of the US Senate, too.

With a thread on Twitter Friday evening, Briahna Gray, senior politics editor for The Intercept and a contributing editor for Current Affairs magazine, laid out a plan of attack for Democrats that would rely not on hand-wringing over their Kavanaugh defeat, but instead focus on truth-telling and fact-finding that would put the Republicans, especially Collins, on the hook for the sham process they facilitated to ram him through. She's received "multiple serious threats" according to her office, has had protestors swarm her home each morning, and was even called a "rape apologist" by the Women's March. Lisa Murkowski, as Senate Republicans who could potentially vote against Trump's Supreme Court pick. Her testimony prompted countless women to share their own stories of sexual harassment and assault. "Right now, we're just working at funding her opponent in the 2020 race". "I don't believe that the facts show it was Brett Kavanaugh", Sen.

Ho said she plans to collect signatures on the letter this week and submit the nomination October 14.

On Sept. 27, Ford testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on national television.

According to lawyer Sandra Lundy, who lives in neighboring MA, she is not only boycotting the state - she is actively campaigning for others to join her. Especially for those of us who are survivors of sexual assault or who know others who are survivors (which means all of us), Dr. Blasey Ford's testimony was an extreme act of bravery, making her a more than worthy recipient to be recognized as a distinguished alumna.

Addressing Kavanaugh's demeanor during the hearing, Collins said she believed Kavanaugh "stepped over the line" by referring to revenge for an orchestrated plot by the Clintons in his opening statement and his responses to certain senators, including Amy Klobuchar.
