Alumni of Kavanaugh's accuser's school write to support her


WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds of alumni of the Holton-Arms School signed a letter in support of Christine Blasey Ford, a fellow graduate accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault three decades ago.

The group released a letter Tuesday calling for a "thorough and independent investigation" before the Senate can vote on Kavanaugh's nomination. Ford says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when she was about 15, an allegation Kavanaugh denies.

She graduated from Holton-Arms, and Kavanaugh went to Georgetown Preparatory School. Both schools are in Washington's Maryland suburbs.

About 600 people signed the letter. It says Ford's alleged experience is "all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton," adding that "many of us are survivors ourselves."

The Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a public hearing on the allegations next Monday.
