[Ed. – How long before she announces she is running for office?]

A professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill nominated Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for one of the school’s “Distinguished Alumni Awards,” citing how Ford “told the truth” about an encounter she allegedly had with Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

UNC Chapel Hill English and comparative literature professor Jennifer Ho wrote a letter recommending UNC alum Dr. Ford to receive the award because of her bravery in coming out about her sexual assault “at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” according to the Carolina Alumni Review. Ho also circulated a petition encouraging others to sign on to the letter.

“What Dr. Blasey Ford did on September 27, 2018 was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was; she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” the letter states. “She made a statement and then answered questions for over three hours in front of a Senate Judiciary Committee with the cameras of the world trained on her.”
