Christine Blasey Ford has been nominated with an award for going public with her allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, CNN reports.

A professor at Ford’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, nominated Ford for the Distinguished Alumna Award, crediting her for “speaking truth to power.”

Ford graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

“…this letter nominating Dr. Blasey Ford is not about partisan politics: it is about recognizing that the simple act of speaking one’s truth, especially when that truth involves sexual assault, is an act of bravery,” the nomination letter read.

Ford was nominated by UNC professor Dr. Jennifer Ho. In the nomination letter, Ho cited the fact that Ford’s testimony against Kavanaugh inspired many women to come forward with their own experiences with sexual assault.

“Dr. Blasey Ford giving her testimony, speaking truth to power, was an inspiration for so many of us,” Ho wrote. “Her testimony prompted countless women to share their own stories of sexual harassment and assault.”

Ho believes Ford’s testimony makes her worthy of recognition as a standout graduate of the University of North Carolina.

“Her accomplishment is to be an alumna of integrity, who despite great personal cost to herself and her family told her story of her sexual assault and emboldened others to also find the courage to speak out against injustice,” the letter read.

The letter did not specifically address the substance of the allegations, nor did it make any mention of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The UNC Distinguished Alumna/Alumnus Award was established in 1971. According to the UNC Alumni Association website, the award “recognizes alumni for outstanding contributions to humankind.”

Ford was nominated for the 2019 award, and the winner will be presented with the award on October 12, 2019.

      Randie, you are so right. She was lying through her teeth! That stupid “baby-like voice” was a dead giveaway! For her to be a “Doctor,” she really acted dumb! She made out like a bandit though with all that “Go Fund Me” money!

    I nominate Ford for the Baghdad Bob award of 2018. This award is highly coveted by those in the liberal world. It is a worldwide contest and only the best of the best are even considered for nomination. It is almost always won by someone in the media but Ford caused so much heartache and pain to Kavanaugh and his family, plus what she put all of America through, she deserves consideration of this award.
    Not familiar with the Baghdad Bob award? Bob was a reporter for Saddam Hussein while Iran was being cleaned up by Americans. While Bob was on their national tv reporting his people were winning and kicking American rear ends, our tanks loaded with troops rolled around a corner showing he was a world class liar.There we were on tv ! Bob was the laughingstock of the people and the media over the entire world. So, the Baghdad Bob award was born.

    This is right up there with Hussein’s Nobel Peace Prize for the most inappropriate accolade in history. But then it is the Democrat/Progressive/Socialist/Marxist/Communist group congratulating themselves so is meaningless in the grand scheme of things.

    And just how do they know she was speaking the truth?
    The FBI says she didn’t have any proof.
    Every day I think the left can’t possibly do or say anything more ridiculous.
    Then I wake up the next day and they prove me wrong.

    A JOKE! No doubt this is a joke an award. For lying how appropriate. Sad time in this country to have even allowed this false story to ever been listened to. Especially with no evidence of anyone who knew of this but her. Sad for all men and for this Judge and his family. To bring up young people drinking who is not stupid at that age. No sexual attacks. Get a life Democrats and this women needs serious counseling and should not teach.

    SURE HOPE THIS IS FAKE NEWS. SHE HURT THE CAUSE FOR RAPE AND ATTEMPTED RAPE BECAUSE SHE MADE AN ALLEGATION TO HELP DEMOCRATS IN THE 11TH HOUR AND HAD NO EVIDENCE AND WAS SHOWN TO BE A LIAR SO THE UNIVERSITY IS TO AWARD SOMEONE WHO CANNOT PROVE ANY OF THE CLAIM FROM 36 YEARS AGO. JUST HOW STUPID ARE TODAY’S PROFESSORS?

    Awards mean NOTHING any more. Obama won the Peace Prize, Kaitlyn Jenner won the “bravery award.” So someone with an agenda and an UNCORROBORATED story, remember UNCORROBORATED, gets an award for a “Truth” award. What a sham!

    “Speaking truth to power”? Who comes up with this bullshit? You mean speaking bald faced lies to power? Lying about her comical ‘fear of flying’…..yea, right.
    The 2nd door on her house, which we found out was required by the local Code Dept., simply because she was seeing patients in her house…..NOT because of that bullshit story she told about being “traumatized”.
    This woman is a serial LIAR.
