I posted this on another thread but it's applicable here as well:
I love that Leland Keyser has gone from potentially Ford's star witness to her biggest nightmare.
She has totally backed off any claim of believing Ford. She has said that the whole thing just wasn't right and when she thought about who she was at the time of the alleged incident she said there's no way she wouldn't have wondered where Ford ran off too and there's no way she wouldn't have been concerned about how Ford got home. Further, she has said that she rarely ever hung out with kids from Kav's school and that after looking at his High School pictures and maps she concluded that she didn't even know him and probably never even met him.
The cherry on top is that she is claiming that Ford's team threatened to smear her if she didn't toe the line.
Then there's Ramirez. She was hammered, has fuzzy recollection of the event, isn't even sure if Kav was even in the room, had to be cajoled by partisans to make the allegation. 4 of the alleged witnesses she named had no recollection of this event.
Now, Steir's (a Clinton operative and longtime political foe of Kav) allegation is actually second-to-third hand (he refused to be interviewed) and is so ridiculous - that friends of a naked Kav "pushed his penis into a chick's hand" - that it can only be laughed at. On top of that, the alleged victim refused interview and her friends claim she had no recollection of this even happening (spotting a trend here?). Even further, the NYT embarrassingly omitted this crucial point and only added it after Mollie Hemingway pointed it out on Twitter and they got slammed on Twitter right after that.
WaPo, LAT and CBS Evening News are all calling this crap out. That in itself is amazing.
The left really shot themselves in the foot trying to resurrect this garbage.

At this point a reasonable person can only conclude that Ford was lying and these 2 NYT writers unwittingly did her a huge disservice by trying to resurrect this. The last thing she wants is any actual and critical scrutiny of her story.
