In a statement released late Thursday, Alabama U.S. Sen. Doug Jones said he will vote against Brett Kavanaugh's nomination for associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The Kavanaugh nomination process has been flawed from the beginning and incomplete at the end," Jones said.  "Dr. (Christine Blasey) Ford was credible and courageous and I am concerned about the message our vote will be sending to our sons and daughters, as well as victims of sexual assault. I will be voting no.”

Common sense isn't so common anymore, Pamela Blakely. Not one of Ford's alleged eye witnesses have stepped forward to corroborate her story. One of her so called witnesses is dead. Two have declined to offer any comment. Two have said they know nothing of the alleged incident. Even as good as democrats are in getting deceased people to vote, they can't get a dead person to speak.
