Brett Kavanaugh was not the only one at the center of attention during the Senate Judiciary Hearing on Thursday, September 27.
Actress Alyssa Milano, a leading voice in the #MeToo movement, threw her support Thursday behind the woman whose sexual assault allegations have thrown President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee's confirmation into doubt.
The actress was seen sitting in the middle of the hearing room and was said to be a guest of Sen. "I never filed a police report and it took me 30 years to tell me [sic] parents". Milano said she had also reached out to Blasey Ford's attorney "just to show my support and if she needed to speak or go for coffee, or anything, if I could help her in anyway, that I was here for her".
Milano traveled from Los Angeles to Washington D.C.to witness the historic hearing.
While Milano quietly sat as Kavanaugh testified, controversy swirled around her appearance.
"If a woman acted like that during a line of questioning, she would have been considered totally unhinged or like she was having a meltdown, which I think proves that he doesn't have the temperament to be on the Supreme Court", she said of Kavanaugh.
Ford, a Palo Alto University professor and research psychologist, has accused Kavanaugh of cornering her into a bedroom with his friend, Mark Judge - both of whom, she said, were "stumbling drunk".
"Is that Alyssa Milano?". Her lawyers say she has also faced death threats. The #MeToo activist was shamed for her "revealing" top and even recording the video of Testimony, breaking the rules of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"... I felt like I needed to be here to show solidarity and my support to Ford for this day that surely will be incredibly hard for her".
On Wednesday, a third woman, Julie Swetnick, came forward with explosive allegations, saying she witnessed sexually abusive behavior by Kavanaugh when he was a teenager and claimed she had been drugged and gang-raped at a party he attended in approximately 1982.
Kavanaugh has denied all wrongdoing. And a policeman warned me about taking video on my phone. "I did not have my phone confiscated as proven by the fact that I didn't stop making social media posts", Milano wrote in the tweet.
Milano also criticized Kavanaugh's behavior during the hearing, implying that the nominee escaped some criticism for his behavior because he was man.
