  • The message, “Kavanaugh is a sexual predator,” was projected
    onto the US Court of Appeals building where Kavanaugh currently
    works as a judge.
  • The women’s rights group reportedly responsible for the
    message on Tuesday night is called UltraViolet. It previously
    projected the message, “Roe V Wade is more popular than Brett
    Kavanaugh” onto the front of the Supreme Court building.
  • At least two different women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual
    assault and misconduct as he looks to be confirmed to the
    nation’s highest court.

The women’s rights group, UltraViolet, projected the words
“Kavanaugh is a sexual predator” onto a courthouse building in
Washington, DC, where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is
currently serving as a judge.

The incident happened Tuesday night, amid preparations for a
Senate Judiciary hearing Thursday, where Kavanaugh is expected to
formally answer to allegations from Christine Blasey Ford, who
said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in
the 1980s.

A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, accused Kavanaugh of exposing
himself to her when they were in college, but it’s not yet clear
whether she will also testify to lawmakers.

Kavanaugh denies all of the allegations.

The group cycled through a number of messages Tuesday night,
according to the
The Hill
— at points displaying messages like “He lied every
time he testified,” and “Kavanaugh must withdraw.”

UltraViolet previously projected the message, “Roe v. Wade is
more popular than Brett Kavanaugh” onto the front of the
Supreme Court building September 4;
a nod to the landmark
1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion nationwide, which
some say is in jeopardy if Kavanaugh were gets confirmed.
