WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) – A dean at the Catholic University of America (CUA) has been suspended after tweeting in favor of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
William Rainford, dean of the National Catholic School of Social Service (NCSSS), tweeted on Sept. 26 from his official university Twitter account:
Swetnick is 55 y/o, Kavanaugh is 52 y/o. Since when do senior girls hang with freshmen boys? If it happened when Kavanaugh was a senior, Swetnick was an adult drinking with&by her admission, having sex with underage boys. In another universe, he would be victim & she the perp!
The tweet caused a firestorm of backlash among CUA students, and Rainford deleted the tweet amid the blowback and went on to issue an apology. CUA officials suspended Rainford from the position of dean for the rest of the semester.
