Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one of several alumnae of Christine Blasey Ford’s high school signing a letter of support for the professor, who’s accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in an incident from their high school days.

The “Veep” star, a Washington-area native, attended Holton-Arms in Bethesda, Md., graduating in 1979.

On Monday, Louis-Dreyfus tweeted:


“We believe Dr. Blasey Ford and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story,” a draft letter from the group of more than 200 women — from classes 1967 to 2018 at the private school — stated. The letter was first reported by HuffPost

In a Sunday interview with The Washington Post, Ford, a California psychology professor, accused President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump rails against impeachment in speech to Texas farmers Trump administration planning to crack down on 'birth tourism': report George Conway on Trump adding Dershowitz, Starr to legal team: 'Hard to see how either could help' MORE’s latest high court nominee of pinning her to a bed during a high school party in the 1980’s. Ford alleged that Kavanaugh "groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it."

Kavanaugh has denied the accusation.

Before Ford’s accusation came to light, Louis-Dreyfus, 57, had been critical of Kavanaugh’s nomination, tweeting out numerous news stories focused on the Supreme Court nominee.

Posting a photo of Fred Guttenberg, the father of a Parkland, Fla. high school shooting victim, who said Kavanaugh refused to shake his hand when he tried to introduce himself at a Senate confirmation hearing, Louis-Dreyfus wrote, “Wow. Despicable.”
