Heller Dismisses Credible Allegations of Attempted Rape Against Kavanaugh as a “Hiccup”

Sen. Dean Heller today showed Nevada women just how out of touch he is. In leaked audio of a VIP conference call set up by the Nevada Republican Party, Heller was caught dismissing credible allegations of attempted rape against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a “hiccup.”

The Nevada Independent: “I’m really grateful for the White House, for the effort of President Trump and what he has done, and the excitement that we have,” [Heller] said. “We got a little hiccup here with the Kavanaugh nomination, we’ll get through this and we’ll get off to the races,” he said.

Rosen for Nevada spokesperson Molly Forgey released the following statement:

“I hope Senator Heller knows that when he shamelessly dismisses allegations of this magnitude against a nominee seeking a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court, Nevada women are listening. Make no mistake, we will hold Senator Heller accountable at the ballot box.”
