CRTV host Allie Beth Stuckey was booed during the 2018 Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, Texas after she said that unconditionally believing all women is unjust while she defended Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“I’m devastated to see a man’s life almost in ruins based on uncorroborated and unsubstantiated allegations,” Stuckey told the audience. “I’m devastated by the thought of a world in which people are guilty until proven innocent and the burden of proof is on the accused.”
“I listened to both of their testimonies and while I think both are believable, I think only Kavanaugh is credible,” Stuckey continued. “He’s the only one that has any substantiation for anything that he said; he’s the only one with any corroboration; he’s the only one who has gone through six FBI background checks; the only one that has any evidence for anything that he is saying and witnesses to back up what he’s saying.”
“He’s the only one that has that and yet we’re supposed to unconditionally believe the woman?” Stuckey asked the crowd. “Why? Because of her anatomy?”
The crowd started to boo.
“I think that’s unjust, I think it’s discriminatory, and I don’t believe it.”
Stuckey told The Daily Wire that she was saddened to see the audience’s response to her statement.
“I didn’t realize presumption of innocence was so controversial,” Stuckey said. “It’s disheartening to know so many people believe credibility depends on gender rather than on facts.”
