Local State Legislators Ask MoCo Police to Investigate Supreme Court Nominee Sex Abuse Allegations
Two local Germantown House of Delegate representatives were among the 11 Maryland Delegates to pen a letter to Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger and Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy requesting that local police officials conduct an investigation into sexual abuse claims made by Christine Blasey Ford and others leveled against Supreme Court Justice Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The letter was dated September 25 and signed by District 39 Delegates Kirill Reznik and A. Shane Robinson, as well as Kumar Barve (District 17), Al Carr (District 18), Bonnie Cullison (District 19), Ariana Kelly (District 16), Marc Korman (District 16), David Moon (District 20), Pam Queen (District 14), Ana Sol Gutierrez (District 18), and Jeff Waldstreicher (District 18). All of the signers are Democrats.
On Wednesday night, Sept. 26, Kirill Reznik sent a Tweet explaining that he and his colleagues sent the letter to law enforcement agencies in which he tagged the co-signers of the letter. “My colleagues & I sent a letter to @mcpnews & State Attny requesting an investigation of allegations of sexual assault against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
The letter was also sent to attorneys Michael Avenatti and Debra Katz, who represent the women who claim they were victims of sexual assault.
“We, the undersigned elected representatives of Montgomery County, Maryland residents, are writing to express our concern about the need for an investigation into recent high-profile allegations of sex assault in our county,” read the letter, which was first reported in Bethesda Beat.
