The “MeToo” scythe of sexual harassment allegations that’s cutting down prominent men in politics and entertainment just took a twist that might make some women rethink this whole "to heck with due process" craze.  The latest person felled is a former business executive and Democratic candidate for Congress from Kansas.  Andrea Ramsey has dropped out of the race after it was revealed that in 2005, her employer had to pay a settlement to a male subordinate who complained that she subjected him to “unwelcome and inappropriate sexual comments and innuendos,” made a sexual advance on him during a business trip, and fired him after he rejected her. 

Ramsey claims that the complaint was a false allegation by a vindictive ex-employee, and she blasted the national Democratic Party for trying to take the moral high ground by doing away with the presumption of innocence and believing every allegation without evidence.  She said, “We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process.”

Pretty much what I said about Roy Moore, but very few people in either party wanted to hear it.  Wonder if they’ll start thinking more seriously about treating every allegation as fact now that it’s destroying the careers and reputations of Democratic women?

    Charlie Gasparino explained the interest issue very well $100k to McConnell; $60k to RINO Ryan; and another figure to Brady. Love Haley's retort with hope that Trump will follow up

    Nope, I don't believe the dems will rethink making false claims against those they hate. It's what they have always done and it's worked, to a point. Since they never have any real ideas, they will keep using the same old tired ones.

    When Allred and her daughter solicit funds to pay accusers we've got a big problem on our hands. If anyone can come out of the woodwork and diss a candidate for 20 to 40 years ago allegations without due process we've got a problem. Actually, if Franken inappropriately touched females before he was a senator, then there is nothing to impeach him with, since it occurred before his senate appointment. Conyers was another story, as it was ongoing and continued during his senate tenure. Bill Clinton had sex in the Oval Office with the intern, and the Blue Dress was evidence. End of story.

    I had two thoughts about all this. The first was---are the accusations (against every person) going to be investigated? Because there have been other false allegations about sexual harassment, about hate crimes against blacks, gays, etc. And, listening to news (not msm, of course) today, it seems there is reason to question that all the allegations against anyone are true. And, the other thought was, if, in the world of politics, one or two accused are run out of town, so to speak, everyone should be run out---and that would include any female politicians. There hadn't been any accusations before this, that I had heard of, but now it has started. But, first and foremost--checking to see that all the allegations are true.
