LAS VEGAS (AP) — About a dozen people, mostly women, are showing their support in Las Vegas for Christine Blasey Ford following her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday.
Gabrielle d'Ayr with the Nevada Progressive Coalition said she's most concerned that women who make accusations of sexual assault have to face a "litmus test of credibility" in order for people to believe their story might be true.
She says people should not assume before investigating that someone who says they are a victim of sexual assault is a liar.
D'Ayr and others demonstrated outside the federal courthouse in Las Vegas with the words "I believe" written on their hands and signs supportive of Ford.
Kenia Leon with Nevada Indivisible called for Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller not to vote to confirm Kavanaugh's nomination.
