USA Today: Kavanaugh Is A Child Molester

USA Today published a hit piece against Supreme
Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Friday, telling readers he is likely a child molester. Sports reporter Erik Brady told readers that
Kavanaugh ought to be kept away from coaching children even if he is cleared of the uncorroborated
allegations of sexual assault. reports: President Trump
ordered a new FBI investigation into Kavanaugh Friday afternoon, noting later that this will
be his seventh FBI background check, all of which Kavanaugh passed without a blemish of
any kind on his record. Kavanaugh is a coach of girls basketball teams,
including his daughter’s. NPR reported when he was nominated in July: “…He also coached the fourth- through
sixth-grade girls basketball teams at Blessed Sacrament, as well as a Montgomery County
Recreation girls basketball team and the Classics AAU second grade girls basketball team.” A neighbor, Julie O’Brien, wrote in the
Washington Post Much has been written about Brett Kavanaugh
as President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, but the discussion has focused on his
record as a federal judge and in his legal career. I’d like to talk about him as Coach K. Like the one at Duke University, this Coach
K also is a mentor to student-athletes who love basketball. But his players are sixth-grade girls. Brett’s older daughter and mine have been
classmates at Blessed Sacrament School, a small Catholic school in the District, for
the past seven years. On evenings and weekends, you’re likely
to find Brett at a local gym or athletic field, encouraging his players or watching games
with his daughters and their friends. He coaches not one but two girls’ basketball
teams. His positive attitude and calm demeanor make
the game fun and allow each player to shine. The results have been good: This past season,
he led the Blessed Sacrament School’s sixth-grade girls team to an undefeated season and a citywide
championship in the local Catholic youth league. To the parents with players on the squad,
it’s no surprise that the team photograph with the trophy is displayed prominently in
his chambers. USA Today is promoting the column on Twitter
with the statement, “From @usatodaysports: “The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh
to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around,”
writes @ByErikBrady.” A photo of Kavanaugh with his daughter’s
team is added for emphasis. Brady’s USA Today article reports that Kavanaugh
has a clean record and is still qualified to coach, but still wants Kavanaugh barred
from coaching kids: Brett Kavanaugh testified the other day that
he might never coach girls’ basketball again. He shouldn’t – at least not until further
investigation has concluded. The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh
to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around… …Kavanaugh is free to continue coaching
in the Catholic Youth Organization and his daughters’ private school in Washington,
according to Edward McFadden, spokesperson for the Archdiocese of Washington. He said a coach accused of sexual misconduct
would have to go through the full legal process and be convicted before being banned. McFadden told USA TODAY Sports’ A.J. Perez on Friday that “adult volunteers with
extensive contact with children” go through fingerprinting, criminal background checks
and training under what is called the VIRTUS program. “The person is VIRTUS-trained,” McFadden
said of Kavanaugh, “and has gone through a background check, which was clean.” Yet Brady concludes his column with an appeal
to ban Kavanaugh from coaching girls basketball. The nation is deeply divided. Sometimes it feels like we don’t agree on
anything anymore. But credibly accused sex offenders should
not coach youth basketball, girls or boys, without deeper investigation. Can’t we all agree on that?
