A woman from Kentucky who accused Brett Kavanaugh of rape during his confirmation hearings has now admitted she lied.
Judy Munro-Leighton of Oceanside, California contacted the office of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as "Jane Doe" and claimed that Kavanaugh and a friend raped her "several times each" in the backseat of a car.
Kamala Harris, with no evidence other than the letter, referred the claim to the Senate Judiciary Committee for investigation.
Kavanaugh was questioned on September 26 about the allegation. He said the, "whole thing is ridiculous."
The woman who made the false allegation was apparently just looking for attention. Now she's going to get lots of legal attention, which is probably not what she intended when she lied.
