Dr. Ford: "I did see Mark Judge once at the Potomac Village Safeway AFTER the time of the attack & it would be helpful with anyone’s resources to figure out when he worked there if people are wanting more details from me about when the attack occurred."…
"If we could find out when he worked there, then I could provide a more detailed timeline about when the attack occurred," said Dr. Ford.

“I said hello to him, and his face was white and very uncomfortable saying hello back,” she continued.
“How long did this occur after the incident?” Senator Durbin asked.

“I would estimate six to eight weeks,” Dr. Ford replied.
There’s a better source, as it turns out: Mark Judge’s book, “Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk,” published in 1997.

In one passage, beginning on Page 92, Judge describes his time working at a grocery store in the context of his drinking problem.
So Judge worked at a grocery store briefly in the summer before his senior year, to earn money for football camp. That would be the summer of 1982.
Kavanaugh's calendar he submitted to the committee also has the "football camp."
Ford testified she saw Judge working at a store between 6-8 weeks after the alleged incident.

The alleged incident could have been 6 weeks before Aug. 22, for example, or it could have been 8 weeks before the end of July.
That window includes July 1, 1982 - a day on which Kavanaugh’s calendar lists: “Go to Timmy’s for Skis w/ Judge, Tom, PJ, Bernie, Squi.”

What “skis” refers to isn’t clear, but it might be a reference to “brewskis,” a then-popular slang term for beer.
Dr. Ford also said that the night the alleged attack happened was just a "get together" and not a party. She recalled that she thought the group was going to a party AFTER this get together & that Kavanaugh & Judge were already drunk.
So who is Timmy? And did he have a party that night?

If so, whose house did Kavanaugh & Judge meet up at BEFORE Timmy's party on July 1st? And is it near the Country Club?
During Rachel Mitchell's questioning - the sex crimes prosecutor the Republicans brought in to ask questions on their behalf - asked about Dr. Ford about her connection to Kavanaugh & how she was introduced to him.
SIDE BAR: @SenateGOP, prosecutors that specialize in sex crimes aren't really known for attacking victims. They INVESTIGATE.

@JeffFlake, if you had anything to do with the selection of Mitchell, you have my vote. Thank you for giving us a real, life Olivia Benson.
In the hearing today, Mitchell asks Dr. Ford about her connection to Kavanaugh & asks her who was the person that connects them.

Ford explains that the shared connection was the person who @EdWhelan123 suggested might be Kavanaugh's doppelganger.…
"He was somebody that, I will use the phrase ‘I went out with,’ " Dr. Ford said, using air quotes. “I wouldn’t say ‘date.’ I would say ‘went out with’ for a few months. That was how we termed it at the time.”

"After that we were distant friends," she continued.
And who is this person that introduced Dr. Ford to Kavanaugh? That would be a boy named Squi.

Dr. Ford described him as the TARGET of Whelan's speculation and a photo from Kavanaugh's YEARBOOK identified that individual as having the nickname "Squee."
Dr. Ford, in other words, claims that she had been going out with Squi for months before the alleged incident in the summer of 1982. Kavanaugh’s calendar from that year shows that he spent a lot of time with Squi as well.

Squi's name is on Kavanaugh's calendar 13 times.
Kavanaugh alleges that he “may” have met Ford but that they “did not travel in the same social circle” & that “she was not a friend, not someone I knew.”

Huh. But she was casually going out with Kavanaugh's buddy Squi, who appears on his summer calendar 13 times.
Rachel Mitchell’s apparent role was to undercut Ford’s story.

By linking Ford to Squi, she may have helped undercut Kavanaugh’s.
CODA: We actually DO know who "Timmy" is. Kavanaugh gives Timmy's last name in his testimony this afternoon. (dumb dumb dumb)

According to Kavanaugh, "Timmy" is Tim Gaudette. And he was one of the four players in the “Renate Alumni” photo in Kavanaugh's yearbook. So where is Timmy's house to the Country Club?

Ah and lookie here. I think this may be our man. His Twitter account is locked. And he lives in Denver, Co.
“This is pretty much going to happen, even though it will get ugly,” said Gaudette, who considers Kavanaugh a longtime friend.
