WASHINGTON (AP) - Kellyanne Conway says the country shouldn't make Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh pay for "pent-up" demand by women incensed about sexual misconduct.
She said on CBS "This Morning" that the allegations against Kavanaugh, now by a second woman, sound like a "vast left-wing conspiracy."
Conway said: "Are we going to put decades of pent-up demand for women to feel whole on one man's shoulders?"
She added that the second woman, who alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at Yale, is welcome to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is expected to do so on Thursday.
Kavanaugh denies both charges.
“This is starting to feel like a vast, left-wing conspiracy,” Kellyanne Conway tells CBS regarding the latest allegation against Kavanaugh.

Conway said, "I don't think one man's shoulders should bear decades of the #MeToo movement" that has toppled powerful men across industries over the last year.
