‘Don’t quote me. They would kill me’: A professor speaks about Brett Kavanaugh and #MeToo at Harvard

Dominic Green –

‘Don’t quote me on this,’ the professor says, ‘but are we really so surprised?’

The professor teaches at a top university in the Northeast. We’re talking hours after Brett Kavanaugh’s withdrawal from teaching a course on the history of the Supreme Court at Harvard next January. That would have been the tenth time that Kavanaugh had taught that course. Now, however, he has become part of the Supreme Court’s history, and not in the way that he wanted.

The Harvard Crimson reports that ‘hundreds’ of Harvard Law alumni had signed a letter urging the university to remove Kavanaugh as a lecturer. According to the Washington Post, Kavanaugh resigned before the letter reached administrators; the implication being that he jumped before he was pushed. Meanwhile, hundreds of students and faculty at Yale, where Kavanaugh earned his law degree, have also protested Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Yet there’s nothing to suggest any improper behaviour by Kavanaugh towards any student in the nine times he’s taught at Harvard Law. Still, no one at Harvard Law is willing to go on the record and confirm this. So much for free speech and the facts of the case.

The professor and I both believe Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony to the Supreme Court judiciary panel over Brett Kavanaugh’s.
