#TimesUp Gets Hijacked to Push Anti-Kavanaugh Political Agenda

When the issue of workplace sexual harassment and assault becomes political, something has gone terribly wrong.

Something has gone terribly wrong with the individuals leading that fight, and something has gone terribly wrong with the organizations backing it.

So is the case for the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, established to advance the #MeToo movement.

Perhaps most famous for its pins worn by celebrities on the red carpet for the Golden Globes, the Time’s Up organization’s stated goal—to provide everyday working women with free legal counseling and services to address workplace harassment and abuse—seemingly has nothing to do with politics.

But this week, #TimesUp leaders decided to wade into one of the most contentious political battles of our time: the nomination of D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
