The purpose of this rant is to deal with the nonsense being spewed by the media concerning the false equivalence concerning sexual harassment (SH) allegations. Al Franken announced he is resigning not because he is guilty but because it’s better for the Dems. Roy Moore says he’s not guilty of the charges.
Here’s my point. If you are elected and subsequently SH allegations come out, then it’s fair to question the legitimacy of your election — Al Franken. If you’re Roy Moore or Trump and the allegations are brought out prior to your election then the voters have spoken and the opposition needs to shut up.
Just so you understand this is not a partisan position. Ted Kennedy and his dead mistress was well known as we’ll as his walking with his junk out in front of his nephews girlfriend. The voters of Massachusetts didn’t care and continued to elect him as was their right.
I lived in the DC area during the Marion (the bitch set me up) Barry years. Subsequently a few years later the voters elected him again. I’ve got no problem with that. They knew the facts and didn’t care. That’s what a democracy is all about. If an informed electorate says they want you representing them knowing the SH allegations against you, that is their right! The swamp needs to butt out!
BTW, I have no problem if Franken resigns and then runs for his vacant seat in an election. If the citizens of Minnesota elect him knowing his proclivities then so be it.
