As crass, political acts go, this one might go down in history. 

As Christine Blasey Ford sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee to deliver her allegations of attempted sexual assault Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono sent an email begging for campaign donations. 

“I am spending every minute of my day fighting the Republicans who are desperate to rush Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and deny fair investigation into the credible sexual misconduct allegations against him,” the letter reads, in part. 

Hirono famously told men to “shut up” and to “do the right thing for once” when the allegations against Kavanaugh were first brought into the public sphere.
