Susan Collins is a ‘rape apologist,’ Females&#039s March claims following Kavanaugh support announcement

GOP Sen. Susan Collins on Friday was dubbed a &#x201Crape apologist&#x201D by a girls&#x2019s activist group amid her choice to support the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Women&#x2019s March posted a photo of the Maine lawmaker on Twitter with the caption, &#x201CThis is who @SenatorCollins is&#x201D and the words &#x201Crape apologist&#x201D in a red box across her face. The post also plugged a site to &quotcancel Kavanaugh.&quot

Kavanaugh has faced heavy scrutiny during his nomination approach, in part simply because of sexual misconduct allegations that surfaced against him. The 1st was brought forward by Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of assaulting her at a celebration in higher school.

Murkowski, on the other hand, announced earlier Friday that she did not intend to vote for Kavanaugh&#x2019s confirmation.

Applauding her selection, the Women&#x2019s March tweeted: &#x201CThank you for undertaking what&#x2019s appropriate, @lisamurkowski. Thank you for hearing us. Thank you for standing with women and survivors. Thank you. #CancelKavanaugh.&#x201D

The Senate voted Friday to end debate on Kavanaugh&#x2019s nomination, setting the stage for&#xA0a final vote in the chamber Saturday evening.
