Either a Democrat and/or someone else who sees nothing wrong with fondling a 14 year old. Maybe it's the 14 year olds fault, she might not be the "little angel" we thought she was...Oh that's why we hold ADULTS responsible for actions with minors, because they are supposed to know better.

Still, absolutely innocent until proven guilty.
There is a big difference between the opinion of one gbo poster and the fact that Democrats Barney Frank, Gerry Studds, Ted Kennedy, Chris Dodd, Bill Clinton either groped women or had sex with underage children yet still enjoyed decades in elected office. That's the double standard I was referring to. Can you name one Republican who spent decades in Congress AFTER it became known that they either sexually molested women or had sex with underage children?

Yep, he "owns" it until he throws out the part about not remembering it the way she did.

When "they" get out-ed. Either they are going into re-hab. They found religion. They say how sorry they are. Deny all , The best one, it was consensual.

Including men. Man on man harassment is prominent lately from the news stories. Have there been any reports of animals, domesticated or wild, that have been involved?

So many are forgetting "innocent until proven guilty"...and I don't care what side they are on!

Now, I am going to say something which will fire some up; but I from what I understand, there IS a statute of limitations. It may be a generous one, and I hope it is ..say 10-12 years. ..But if it goes on 20-30-40 years with no complaints, it apparently didn't bother anyone very much.

If somebody brings such a thing up 20-40 years after the fact, as far as I am concerned, it is motivated by money, politics, notoriety..or they were complicit in the action.

After 10-12 years pass by with no complaints..any complaints after that point, should be ignored.

Don't folks realize, these are nothing more than accusations at this point? Anybody can ACCUSE anybody at any time, and with the fanatical people we now have involved in politics now (e.g. OWS, BLM, antifa, etc) there would likely have many who would falsely accuse a target individual of molestation, especially if the accuser already had a sleazy reputation to start with.

Then..the possibility of getting paid big money just to 'shut up'...well, you can see the picture. Perhaps the biggest crime is that some regular folks believe an ACCUSATION to be as good as a conviction..

Remember the Duke Lacrosse players... They would be in jail yet, were not one of the team members parents wealthy enough to force it to a conclusion.

About 10 years before he ran for office he talked freely about snorting coke during the creation of SNL. I'm still amazed he was able to get elected...
