Christine Blasey Ford Seems to be Straight-Up Lying About Her "Escape Door" and When and Why It Was Built

Big story from Paul Sperry.

Ford testified last week that she had never revealed the details of the alleged attack until 2012, when she was in couples therapy with her husband. She said the memories percolated up as they revisited a disagreement they’d had over her insistence on installing a "second front door" when they had remodeled their Palo Alto, Calif., home.

The need to explain a decision her husband "didn't understand," Ford testified, pushed her to say she wanted the door to alleviate symptoms of "claustrophobia" and "panic attacks" she still suffered from an attempted rape allegedly perpetrated by Kavanaugh in high school during the early 1980s.

"Is that the reason for the second door -- front door -- is claustrophobia?" asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. "Correct," Ford replied.

Ford never specified when the renovation took place, leaving a possible impression that it and the therapy session happened around the same time.

Spoiler alert: they did not happen around the same time.

Public records reveal that the Fords obtained a building permit to add an additional room and an additional door four years before the 2012 counselling sessions, in February 2008.

But documents reveal the door was installed years before as part of an addition, and has been used by renters and even a marriage counseling business.

"The door was not an escape route but an entrance route," said an attorney familiar with the ongoing congressional investigation. "It appears the real plan for the second front door was to rent out a separate room."

She had to fucking go to therapy to discuss a fucking second door they had added years earlier?

That was still causing marital distress, huh?

Is she just a fucking lunatic? Or a liar?

Here's the real reason for the second door: they bought this house from another marital counselor (who is not the same as the therapist the Fords went to in order to get over their Door Grief) who wanted to maintain that residence as her professional office. So she sold them the house, but they installed a second door and room for her to continue her business in.

Other documents, including health care-provider registration records, reveal that a marriage counselor listed Ford's home address as her place of employment, ostensibly using the extra room and door for her clinical practice. That marriage therapist, Sylvia Adkins Randall, sold the home to the Fords in 2007, but continued to maintain the address for her business.

And if she needed this Second Door to fight her claustrophobia and panic -- why is it she didn't install this critical second escape route in their second home as well?

Also casting doubt on Ford's story is the fact she installed no such escape door at a second home, which property records show she and her husband own in Santa Cruz, Calif., less than five blocks from the beach.

Yet she recently told a close friend, according to media reports, that she has resisted purchasing a home without a second exit from the master bedroom. Without it, she said she would never feel safe.

...

Property records show Ford and her husband, Russell Ford, bought the beach house in 2007. This July -- the same month Ford sent a letter to Feinstein accusing Kavanaugh of attacking her -- Ford applied for permits to build a front porch and new decks at the home, located on Seaside Street in Santa Cruz. There is no application for a second front door, however, and the recent permits are the only ones applied for since 2007.


No evidence has emerged of any other exterior door construction at either of Ford's homes, authorized or not.

Blasey Ford refused comment on Paul Sperry's story. I assume that she either

1, cannot remember important details, on lawyers' advice, or

2, needs to talk to her "Beach Friends" about it.
