Judy Munroe-Leighton Admits She Lied About Kavanaugh Raping Her. What Should Be Done?

Judy stated that an unnamed letter describing multiple rapes by Kavanaugh was from her, but when questioned by the Senate committee she stated that she had never met Kavanaugh and further stated that it "was a tactic" to prevent Kavanaugh's appointment. Senator Grassley asked the DOJ to prosecute her for these false allegations.
What do you think should be done? Should we still "believe survivors"?

  • Lock her up! Lock her up! This absolutely disgusting and disgraceful. She used a serious crime like rape to destroy a man and no we should not believe all survivors at least not without sufficient and valid proof. People lie I can’t believe people who defended her viscously for got this fact.

  • The sentence for perjury can be pretty steep. By criminal law she should be behind bars. But there are bigger fish to fry here, there's little to gain from sentencing this woman to jailtime.

    Offer her a plea bargain - she walks free with a suspended sentence IF she testifies against those who paid her to accue Kavanagg. Because rest assured, she WAS bribed to do this, people don't just accuse random strangers of rape.
    Offer her witness protection. 24/7 until the case is solved, because if she decides toto testify, she will have a target on her head.

    • Oh, well it's not a coincidence. She said she did it specifically to stop Kavanaugh. Presumably because she thought he was an awful guy who was going to take away women's rights and things like that.

    • Many people hated Kavanagh, but most of them weren't ready to risk several years in jail to prevent him from becoming a supreme court judge. Generally speaking when someone commits a seemingly irrational, or barely rational act, there are other factors we don't know.

      Lee Harvey Oswald could have had a beef with JFK... but considering Trump. didn't release the files, it's more likely the feds had an even greater beef.

  • so because this lady falsely took credit for anonymous letter she didn't write we are wondering if we should believe all other survivors?

    this is like saying if one white person (let's say dylan roof) shoots black people should we presume all white people want to kill black people

    nothing should be done to her. public opinion will be the ultimate consequence and penalty in her life. i'm sure she lives a life of fear and receives death threats. i imagine this will severely impact her socially and from an occupational standpoint. often times public scorn is consequence enough

    • You're totally right about the public scorn part. But people have to know its not okay to throw around rape without serious consequences, because what if, by chance, she proved him to be guilty? Then he loses everything without even doing anything wrong. In fact, there was this college football player that had his name cleared because of a false accusation, and I don't think he was the only one.

    • How long should she go to jail for? And just to clarify in the Kavanaugh case it’s three persons so far that have made false allegations 2 women and one man.

      How do you determine which “survivors” we should believe and which we shouldn’t?

    • At least a year. Everyone adult who makes false rape allegations should go to jail at least a year.

      Believe survivors is a blanket term, at least that's how I read it. So, if I had to choose an extreme-believe everyone at first (aka go through with an investigation) vs brushing everyone off, I'd choose the first option.

    • Well obviously we take credible allegations seriously. I just don’t agree with denegrating or castigating a person for an allegation with no supporting evidence. That’s the problem that I at least see with the “believe survivors” mantra. We don’t know that these people are survivors and we’re performing mob justice by deciding that the accused is guilty without corroborative evidence. That’s the worrisome thing to me at least.

  • Just because she lied, doesn't mean you automatically dismiss survivors of rape, and putting "believe survivors" in quotations is ignorant - and that's coming from ME of all people.

    The woman in question admitted that a real rape-claim that was anonymously sent in was from her, while in truth, it wasn't. She didn't actually write or fabricate the claim itself, just that she was the author of the letter. To clarify. The woman who wrote it is still considered a Jane Doe.

    She then goes on to be quoted saying she essentially did it for attention. This woman literally stole someone's rape claim because she is, in fact, an idiot and a shithead, but that doesn't inherently mean now all claims about rape are false.

    What should be done legally? She should be sued for wasting the time of the court and for defamation. Period.

    • “Believe survivors” was in quotes because it was a reference to a specific movement who’s point was “believe all survivors”. The problem of course being that we don’t know whether or not the accuser is a survivor. By using that terminology you’re trying to bias whoever is listening to feel more sympathetic.

      You even said here that it was a real rape claim. What do you mean by that? Do you think this rape really happened, if so why?

      I also don’t know who you are so I don’t know if this “and that's coming from ME of all people.” means anything. I don’t know what your standard is.

  • This is exactly what a lot of people were saying during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings when these allegations came out of the woodwork at the last minute. That it was all a very low and dishonest attempt to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation by smearing him with false allegations.

    • The criminal referral that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley made to the DOJ is for lying to Congress and obstruction. So with her admission, it would be easy to get a federal indictment from a grand jury. At that point her lawyer would probably seek a plea deal. And I would hope that any plea deal would involve prison time.

    • The investigation into Kavanaugh? Yes. Of the 6 accusers I’m aware of 3 have recanted and we’re recommended for criminal charges. The rest were just unsubstantiated.

    • Haha!

      You are so funny. You are not very good at pretending to be stupid.

      The investigation launched in to Ms. Leighton's claims appears to be dead.

      It looks like whatever the goal was for this particular investigation has been achieved. I doubt we will ever hear Ms. Leighton's name again. Unless it is to used as a reference in discrediting future allegations by people against others of a certain political persuasion. But certainly not in finding out why she made the allegations, did anyone help her, convicting her and any possible associates, etc.

    • Uh, well if she’s not going to be prosecuted and the media decides to cover this up then yeah we won’t hear about her. Swetkyck is also recommended to the DOJ as well as that one guy who said Kavanaugh assaulted him. I don’t know how I was pretending to be dumb. These were three of the six accusations I’m aware of.

    I don't think it deserves an equal sentence as rape itself, the nature of the crime is very different. But definitely jail time.

    It's not so much about 'believing survivors' in my opinion, rather taking allegations of crimes seriously. However, innocent until proven guilty, as it is a cornerstone of a proper judicial system, should remain.

    Blindly believing allegations is not right. Scrutiny is necessary, but they do need to be taken seriously.

    Caused material harm to the plaintiff by publishing or broadcasting said false statement of fact;
    Acted either negligently or with actual malice;"

      We should treat claims that are credible as credible claims and investigate them.

      I tend to be very pessimistic about arriving at truth in scenarios which seem to boil down to a 'he said she said' scenario, but I find it interesting that people closer to such scenarios than I at least sometimes express more optimism.

      In this case, since I'm suspecting he's more looking for name clearing, I'd suggest he sue for a nominal amount because it makes him look better. Rather than looking vindictive, it would very clearly send the message that he's suing to clear his name, period. Politically, I think it's the best move -for him- to effectively be pushy on clearing his name, and benevolent on the repercussions.
