Patty Davis, Reagan's daughter, speaks out about rape

In an op-ed for The Washington Post, former first daughter Patti Davis has disclosed that she was sexually assaulted roughly 40 years ago and kept quiet just like Christine Blasey Ford.

Davis, the daughter of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, describes how when she met with a prominent music executive hoping to establish her career as a songwriter, he raped her in his office. Noting how she remembers he walked across a "dark-green carpet" and that "his breath smelled like coffee and stale bread" but not which month of the year the attack happened, she relates to the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape.

"I never told anyone for decades — not a friend, not a boyfriend, not a therapist, not my husband when I got married years later," Davis wrote in the piece, published online today. "It doesn’t surprise me one bit that for more than 30 years, Christine Blasey Ford didn’t talk about the assault she remembers, the one she accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of committing."

Davis likens her experience to Ford's when it comes to selective memory.
