Sen. Nelson tweeted on September 17 that there should be an investigation into California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation that Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school in the 1980’s.
“I agree there should be an investigation of the new allegations against him. I believe the people involved should appear before the Judiciary committee,” Nelson said.
This could be his death blow in his midterm reelection campaign.
