With great fanfare, befitting an egomaniacal, self-impressed sleazebag lawyer, michael avenatti presented Julie Swetnick as an accuser of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
So why, after the first couple of days, did she largely disappear from a media hungry to nail Kavanaugh for everything they could?
Maybe you’ll find the answer in Andrew Kerr’s article for bizpacreview.com:
Here are a few excerpts…but I urge you to read the entire article for full context:
The woman who charges she was gang-raped at a party where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was present, Julie Swetnick, had a lawsuit filed against her by a former employer that alleged she engaged in “unwelcome, sexually offensive conduct” towards two male co-workers, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Swetnick’s alleged conduct took place in June 2000, just three weeks after she started working at WebTrends, the complaint shows. WebTrends conducted an investigation that found both male employees gave similar accounts of Swetnick engaging in “unwelcome sexual innuendo and inappropriate conduct” toward them during a business lunch in front of customers, the complaint said.
Swetnick denied the allegations and, WebTrends alleged, “in a transparent effort to divert attention from her own inappropriate behavior … [made] false and retaliatory allegations” of sexual harassment against two other male co-workers.
The article goes on to detail how Swetnick played WebTrends for every cent she could get out of it, before applying for unemployment. Trust me, the account of her actions is well worth reading…
….and, most probably, why she is not being taken seriously by media.
Why they, or anyone, would take michael avenatti seriously is anyone’s guess.
