About a half-hour into Thursday’s testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, Jen Pollock Michel tweeted a simple message: “Watching the hearings. Lord, have mercy.”
Pollock Michel, a 44-year-old evangelical author from Chicago now living in Toronto, is religiously and politically conservative and badly wants someone who shares her values on the Supreme Court. In Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, she saw someone who would promote what matters to her most.
When the allegations of sexual assault began emerging against him, she was cautious. “Let due process happen,” she said. Then came Thursday’s hearings. She tried to imagine herself as Kavanaugh’s mother. She envisioned one of her three sons sitting in the judge’s chair.
