Oh, so you'd rather not be alerted to potential problems even after the
statute of limitations has expired? In this case, Kavanaugh would have
sailed through the confirmation and we'd be stuck with him. Now there's at
least a chance he won't be confirmed.

One could argue that after the statute of limitations has expired, it's no
longer a criminal allegation. But I still think unproven allegations should
be considered. In many cases of sexual assault there's not enough evidence
to go to trial. That doesn't mean they should be ignored.
