    Julie Swetnick, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of participating in a gang-rape ring during his high school years, sued her former employer for sexual misconduct claims using a law firm run by the lawyer representing one of the other women accusing Kavanaugh.

    "Roughly a decade ago, Ms. Swetnick was involved in a dispute with her former employer, New York Life Insurance Co., over a sexual-harassment complaint she filed, according to people familiar with the matter," The Wall Street Journal reported late Wednesday. "Representing her in the complaint was the firm run by Debra Katz, the lawyer currently representing Dr. Ford. The company ultimately reached a financial settlement with Ms. Swetnick, the people said."

    A spokesperson for New York Life told The Wall Street Journal that Swetnick worked for the organization for less than two years. The Journal notes that Swetnick did not list her employment at New York Life Insurance on a resume of hers that they reviewed. The Journal adds that a spokeswoman for Katz refused to comment.

    The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Swetnick appears to have had her share of major financial struggles in recent years:

    Swetnick also claims to have a security clearance with the IRS despite having recently had a $40,000 judgement against her for unpaid taxes. She settled a $40,303 IRS judgement on March 23 of this year, according to a public records search. Maryland court records show a $62,821 tax lien filed against her on Oct. 2, 2015.

    On Wednesday, Politico reported that a Miami Dade County court docket shows that an ex-boyfriend of Swetnick, Richard Vinneccy, filed a restraining order against Swetnick in 2001 for threatening him. "She's not credible at all. Not at all," Vinneccy, a 63-year-old registered Democrat, told Politico. "I have a lot of facts, evidence, that what she's saying is not true at all," he said, telling the outlet that he was speaking to an attorney before making any more public statements.
