Do you believe all the white women in the Antebellum South who claimed that they were raped by African-American men? Do you believe every woman who accuses a famous political figure of sexual assault or misconduct?

Most Americans and others living in democracies accept the idea that the accused should be afforded a presumption of innocence and that an allegation does not automatically mean the accused is guilty. If you are ever called to serve on jury, the judge and attorneys during the voir dire process will make certain you agree with that fundamental concept.

Accusations of rape led to lynching
In the South, an estimated two or three blacks were lynched each week in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. One-fourth of lynchings from 1880 to 1930 were prompted by an accusation of rape. Source

Kavanaugh accuser admits rape accusations were fabricated
On October 3, 2018, Committee staff received an email from Judy Munro-Leighton with a subject line claiming "I am Jane Doe from Oceanside CA Ė Kavanaugh raped me," according to [Sen Chuck] Grassley's letter.

She is accused of writing that she was "sharing with you the story of the night that Brett Kavanaugh and his friend sexually assaulted and raped me in his car" and referred to "the letter that I sent to Sen. Kamala Harris on Sept. 19 with details of this vicious assault," the Grassley letter continues.

On November 2, 2018, Grassley announced that a woman named Judy Munro-Leighton, from Kentucky, had come forward by e-mail on October 3 as the anonymous accuser, and admitted that her accusations were fabricated.

Another Kavanaugh accuser walks back sexual misconduct accusation
Julie Swetnick, the third woman to publicly accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, appeared during a Monday night TV interview to contradict a claim she made against the Supreme Court nominee in a sworn declaration last week.

Swetnick, in her sworn statement, alleges she "became aware of efforts" in the 1980s by Kavanaugh and his Georgetown Preparatory School classmate Mark Judge, among others, to "spike the punch at house parties I attended with drugs and/or grain alcohol so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'no.'"

But when asked by NBC News Monday whether she saw Kavanaugh slip substances into drinks at those gatherings, Swetnick said she only witnessed him "by" the punch.
