Politics, Sexual Harassment, and the Truth

I’m sure glad I’m not famous enough to have my life scrutinized going back 40 years. Who knows what someone might say about me. Yikes. How does a person defend himself against accusations made by someone out of the distant past? We live in perilous times where an accusation can destroy a person’s career, reputation, and life. I’ve seen it happen many times. Tragic.

It was not that long ago that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was accused of sexual innuendos and misconduct. You may remember Herman Cain who ran for president in 2012. Two women came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct. As the story unfolded, it began to unravel. It was hard to find anything on Mitt Romney, but that didn’t stop his accusers from making sexual hay out of “binders full of women.”

A fake dossier was manufactured for “opposition research” against Trump by Democrats and some Republicans. Now we learn that Hillary is looking to manufacture a second sexual dossier against Trump. Sex – good and bad – sells. The following is from Rush Limbaugh:

Hillary Clinton is in “secret negotiations” with ex-British spy Christopher Steele to buy SECOND “dirty dossier” on Trump’s romantic entanglements with Russian women…. Clinton author Ed Klein, author of four books on the Clintons, claims “Hillary’s minions are in secret talks” Ed Klein told Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday “with Russian dossier author Christopher Steele, in an attempt to end his “illegitimate presidency.”

The Roy Moore sexual misconduct story is the latest entry into no-holds-barred politics. Who’s telling the truth? I don’t know. The only people who know are Roy Moore and his accusers. John McCain and Mitch McConnell and other Republicans are calling on Moore to step down from the Alabama Senate race. Guilty until proven innocent.

The woman who is making the most serious accusation may have credibility issues. But I don’t know if what the article is reporting is true about her. Maybe she was rebuffed by Moore when she made sexual advances toward him and flipped the story out of spite. There are numbers of possible scenarios. “Joanie Faircloth, who alleged that Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst had sexually assaulted her,” stated that the accusation was “100 percent false. . . . I made up those lies about him to get attention while I was going through a difficult period in my life and trying to cope with my son’s illness.” (Rolling Stone)

This is not surprising. The last person these guys want dogging them in the Senate is Roy Moore and will do almost anything to get him out of the race, even if it means if a very liberal Democrat gets elected. This should not surprise us since some of the people who want Moore to drop out are the same people who lied for eight years about promising to repeal Obamacare.

There are reports that some of the women accusers are supporting the Democrat candidate. One of them has worked for Joe Biden (who has his own creepy harassment issues).
