Democrats are peddling a claim that Neil Gorsuch once encouraged his students to believe that women use employer benefits to get pregnant then drop out of the workforce. The comments purportedly offended his class and Gorsuch purportedly made clear he really believed it.
What the media is not telling you is that the sole student from his class to come forward claiming this is a woman who worked for both President Barack Obama and Senator Mark Udall and is a liberal activist committed to stopping Gorsuch.
There is another problem. Other students in the same class at the same time have no recollection of the incident. In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Will Hauptman who attended the class refutes the allegation noting that Judge Gorsuch
frequently asked us to consider the various challenges we would face as new attorneys. Among those challenges were balancing our desire to perform public service with our need to pay off student loan debt, and the tension between building a career in a time-intensive profession and starting a family and raising children—especially for women.
Mr. Hauptman notes that he and Gorsuch’s accuser have dramatically different accounts of what happened in class.
More telling should be that the media rushed out the sensational story without ever noting the accuser worked for President Obama and has a liberal agenda.
