So, She Lied To Congress

Much has been made about the testimony of Dr. Ford being traumatized by the alleged event, even to the point of having two doors on the front of her home, so that she might always have an escape route.  Except that:
“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.”
Oh, really, but I thought she testified that she had the door added during a renovation over the wishes of her husband because she always wanted an additional exit route because of the trauma of the sexual assault.  Well, maybe not.
 Palo Alto city records show that a building permit for an additional room and exterior door was issued to Ford and her husband on Feb. 4, 2008 — more than four years before the May 2012 therapy session where, she says, she first identified Kavanaugh as her attacker.
So, she had not told her husband at the time the renovation occurred.    It looks like the whole double-front-door story was a lie.   And much was made about a legal assumption that if someone will lie about one thing, they'll lie about another thing, which throws the whole testimony into doubt.
