Graffiti on Yale Campus Quotes Christine Blasey Ford on Kavanaugh

HeadlineOct 23, 2018

And at Yale University, the words spoken by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during her historic Senate testimony last month were seen graffitied on buildings around campus Monday. One quote from Dr. Blasey Ford—who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape when she was 15 and he was 17—could be seen on the Sterling Law Building, where Kavanaugh once studied. Students tweeted photos of the quotes “I have had to relive my trauma in front of the entire world” and “Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter…” The full quote from Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony is “Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the uproarious laughter between the two [men], and their having fun at my expense.” During the contentious confirmation battle for Brett Kavanaugh, Yale Law students held protests and a sit-in at the school, with many also going to D.C. to protest. Kavanaugh attended Yale University and Yale Law School.
