Newly published allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh have prompted a number of prominent Democrats to call for his impeachment.

Political Columnist Jennifer Braceras and Michael Curry, a member of the National NAACP Board of Directors, discussed the latest political news in Washington D.C. and in Boston on Boston Public Radio on Monday.

Kavanaugh was confirmed last October after emotional hearings in the Senate over a sexual assault allegation from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during their high school years. The New York Times now reports that Kavanaugh faced a separate allegation from his time at Yale University and that the FBI did not investigate the claim.

Braceras said she does not believe the women who have accused Kavanaugh of misconduct, likening the line of questioning from Democrats during his confirmation to a "political hit job."

"I think with any crime, you can't look at trends. You have to look at the facts, you have to look at the evidence, you have to look at the people. It's not fair to paint with a broad brush, particularly when it's a high profile political situation. You have to really be careful," said Braceras.

Curry called out the politicization of the process.

"Having for many years investigated discrimination complaints, ... when somebody puts themselves in a position of calling it out and having to be brought into a hearing talk about what happened and how it happened, typically it's the truth, because people wouldn't put themselves through that situation and scrutiny, but for their desire to get some justice — and I think the same goes for women," he said. "When women bring these charges, especially when there's repetition here, there's pattern here, we should take that seriously. I'm disturbed when that process plays out, to give them their day in court their hearing their opportunity heard, is impacted by the politics, that's what this is about."

Should Kavanaugh be impeached? Curry said he should be held accountable by members of Congress if he lied during the hearings. "It's their opportunity to really highlight that," he said.
