Republicans started it. They knew Bill Clinton was a sleaze-bag, and they set him up. Do you honestly think Clinton haters got their hands on a Presidential cum-stain without careful planning and well-timed control of the situation?

The only reason Democrats haven't been retaliating in kind is because they are constantly buried in more sleaze scandals than they handle, and there's never been an appropriate time. Even now, they've got like a half dozen of their typical pussy-grabbing, penis-exposing, intern-cornering, oops-wrong-hole-fucking, hotel-maid-assaulting, gay-escort-cohabitating profligate deviants and soft-rape perpetrators in their own hypocritical faces, and before they could go after Moore they had to fall on their pervert swords.

Seems like organizations are taking extreme measures because the fallout from an overreaction isn't going to matter.

Tavis Smiley says he still doesn't know why he was suspended by PBS

Obama's systemic tolerance of abuse
Quote:
He reportedly got a reprimand, a title change and “relief from supervisory duties” but was not suspended and did not receive a loss in pay or grade. There reportedly was a concern that a suspension would “deprive the government” of his services.

What do you expect? The Obama White House set the wrong example right from the top with his own personal security detail rampantly partying with hookers every time he went anywhere. The only people who ever got punished were whistleblowers.

The whole Democrat party is dripping with stank, hypocrisy, ethical bankruprcy and finincial corruption.

Women bosses are the same way, though. If you flirt with them like they're still young and pretty, you are preferred. And some want more than that.

Without diversity there is no progress.
So why some of these diverse lifeforms are condemned and some are not? They all are part of diverse mankind, part of progress and evolution. Now liberals are trying to remove gender specific differences, if they succeed mankind will become extinct. Some are called sex offenders and they are suppressed mercilessly. Yet, they are merely fulfilling their role as everybody else does.
I think everyone knows the theory we here are merely subjects of a test, conducted by "supreme beings".
This test is nearing its end, they soon will turn off the lifeline to the Petri Dish labelled "The Earth" and go home, discussing what went wrong and what to change to succeed with next, improved test.

Did she ever name the guy or recant?

The article seems clear. She hasn't named the person and insists it happened. The name in the book was a pseudonym.

I have no idea what kind of hazy would be induced from being drunk while on cocaine and Xanax, but maybe that caused enough impairment that she didn't actually verbalize any kind of no but still thought it. Of course, it is equally plausible that she did and was in no condition to prevent it.

Giving her the benefit of the doubt that she's telling the truth about it having happened, I respect the (apparent) decision to not reveal the name. Although I have to wonder how many mustachioed campus Republicans had their own campus radio show.

It would be so awful to be a young male today. Their hands are tied, and so are their tongues. But, OTOH, it's less stress for the women. I read somewhere that sexual activity is down thirty percent from ten years ago, per capita. When people have to use tinder to support their social lives ... well ... something's out of mesh. But - lower population growth is a plus, I guess.

I'm sure there have been abuses of power in some cases, and maybe even some assaults - but a lot of this latest in-the-news stuff is just a reflection of the times, which are hypocritical, schizophrenic, and self immolating IMO for both sexes.
