    Not the women who reported and that is who we are talking about. What some woman somewhere might have or might not have done has nothing to do with the current claims of sexual harassment. Are you saying because some woman may have slept with a man to get preferential treatment all women should have to put up with sexual harassment? In fact, what is your point as it relates to any of the recently fired men?

    Yep, defend Conyers and piss off women, or call for him to resign and maybe open the floodgates he has promised of other cases. You think she would have said nothing until a consensus had been reached as to how to handle this.

    The left turned this scourge on our society into a political football. The good thing is many of these low lifes are being ferreted out. I don't think in their wildest dreams the left could see this issue turning on them like it has.

    These guys got away with it for decades and knew that if they gave lip service to liberal women's causes, no one would dare say anything. And Harvey Weinstein, the first domino to fall, had the Clinton as an extra layer of protection. And Lena Dunham said that she notified senior Hillary campaign minions on more than one occasion that Harvey Weinstein was a rapist but there was never any response from the campaign.

    As I have asked before, does anyone believe that Harvey Weinstein's accusers would have come out had his main protector, Hillary Clinton, been elected president?

    No he made sure to say he "retired", no doubt with his full and generous pension. There are very few pensions today except in government, or incredibly old companies like GE that can no longer afford them. But let's make sure our elected officials get what the majority of America does not.

    Of course he "retired". When has a politician or diplomat ever worried about the people's money..

    'Morning Joe': Harold Ford Jr. Suspended by MSNBC Amid Sexual Assault Claim

    [​IMG]

    Morning Joe is down yet another contributor: former U.S. congressman Harold Ford Jr.has been suspended by MSNBC as he fights back against claims of sexual assault.


    Mika Brzezinski confirmed the news on Friday’s edition of the Joe Scarborough-fronted morning show, just one day after The Huffington Post reported that Ford was terminated by Morgan Stanley following a human resources investigation into allegations of misconduct. The accuser, a reporter who came forward anonymously and was not employed by Morgan Stanley, said she had met with Ford several years ago in a professional capacity. He is alleged to have forcibly grabbed her during the encounter, prompting a building security guard to intervene. Ford reportedly continued contacting the woman via email after the incident, until she asked that he cease contact altogether.
