Former Democratic candidate for Congress and weatherman for WJLA Channel 7 in Washington D.C. Dennis Ketterer has sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee about Julie Swetnik. Swetnik has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
In the letter, which was submitted as a statement to the Committee under penalty of perjury, Ketterer says Swetnik told him in the 1990s that she enjoyed sex with multiple men at the same time. Ketterer, who doesn't drink alcohol, says he met Swetnik at a bar on Wisconsin Circle. He was there to buy a soda after a goodbye party for a co-worker in 1993 and was having marital issues at the time. Swetnik approached him, they developed a conversation and ultimately a relationship.
“During a conversation about our sexual preferences, things got derailed when Julie told me that she liked to have sex with more than one guy at a time. In fact sometimes with several at one time. She wanted to know if that would be ok in our relationship," the letter states. “I asked her if this was just a fantasy of hers. She responded that she first tried sex with multiple guys while in high school and still liked it from time-to-time. She brought it up because she wanted to know if I would be interested in that.”
“Julie never said anything about being sexually assaulted, raped, gang-raped or having sex against her will. She never mentioned Brett Kavanaugh in any capacity,” he continued.
Ketterer said he is coming forward now due to the accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, which based on his experience with Swetnik, he believes are false.
"On Wednesday, Seprtember 26th, I heard that Mr. Kavanaugh had a third accuser. When Julie's name was mentioned as the accuser, and due to the type of accusation, I was deeply troubled and felt a moral dilemma," Ketterer said. "As I watched part of the afternoon confirmation hearing the next day, and saw Mrs. Kavanaugh looking so sad I felt that she needed to know that in this instance, her husband was being mischaracterized...based on my direct experience with Julie, I do not believe her allegations against Mr. Kavanaugh."
Ketterer also revealed he was a victim of sexual abuse as a child.
"I know what it's like to be sexually assaulted and not be believed. I was 9 years old when it happened at the hands of my grandfather's best friend. I also know what it's like to be accused of something significant that I didn't do and not be believed," he wrote.
In a sworn statement to the Committee, Swetnik accused Judge Kavanaugh of participating in gang rapes in high school. During an interview with NBC News, she walked back her statement.
Swetnik has also been accused of threatening to kill the unborn child of her ex boyfriend.
