Lindsey Graham to Sex-Assault Survivor: ‘Go to the Cops’

An attendee at the Kavanaugh-Ford hearings claimed that when she disclosed her own assault to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in a hallway Thursday, he dismissed her with a curt, “I’m sorry. Tell the cops.” The woman, Robyn Swerling, tweeted about the experience, writing: “That was me! @LindseyGrahamSC said he did not believe Dr. Ford because she couldn’t recall the exact date of the assault. I told him I was raped 13yrs ago but don’t know the date. So would he believe me? He said ‘I’m sorry, but then you should go to the cops.’’ In a subsequent tweet, she added that “If @LindseyGrahamSC had paused to talk with me, instead of rushing into the elevator, I’d have told him the cops can’t do anything about it now, but that doesn’t make it any less true and doesn’t make me any less credible.”
