Ford’s plausible testimony warranted FBI probe
Mona Charen’s column, “The truth ends up as a casualty in hearing” (Opinion, Sept. 30) makes no sense. Most of Mona’s column is filled with non-sequiturs and alleged facts that are not really germane to the issue at hand. The real question is, is it more likely than not that a drunken 17-year-old would do what Mrs. Ford alleges and then deny it many years later; or that a professional woman in her 50s would just make this up out of thin air and fortify her case by making statements years earlier to a therapist and others who would support her claim? Also, she has taken a polygraph test and is asking for an FBI investigation. This does not prove guilt, but considering this is a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, it certainly is sufficient grounds for a thorough FBI investigation.
