CLINTON: Follow the harassment

Print Article

The sanctimonious exasperation of many Democrats about workplace sexual coercion is puzzling. While at work, William Jefferson Clinton abused a girl less than half his age and with proud Democratic help, he kept his job as leader of our country. It was obscene on many levels.

How did that event impact this awful problem and did that stupid precedent inspire and embolden other men?

How many more women have been abused because Bill got a very public free pass to seek sexual favors at work? How much better would women have been treated if Bill’s sexual antics got deservedly hammered instead of shockingly ignored?

WJC is the benchmark, you Democrats own this ugly issue. At the very least, stop idolizing the man and put him first on the roster of shame. Better late than never. Until Bill is formally rebuked, your complaints about others all ring hollow.
