(Newser) – Christine Blasey Ford has a decent memory for sexual assault but a bad memory for faces, at least according to Sen. Susan Collins. "I found Dr. Ford's testimony to be heart-wrenching, painful, compelling, and I believe that she believes what she testified to," says Collins on CNN's State of the Union about Ford's sexual-assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, per the Hill. "I don't think she was coming forth with a political motive. I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant. I do believe that she was assaulted." Collins also points to a lack of corroborating evidence, saying "each of the people that Professor Ford said was present that night have testified under oath ... that they have no memory of this happening."
