    If it's so clear then WHERE IS THE PROOF? Evidence?

    Of course you've got nothing, just your voice and obvious ignorance.

    Because it signals to their constituents that they're on board with the witch hunt and keeps them from coming under fire for not "doing something about it". But if they want to pander to this and cull their peers for unsubstantiated allegations or actions that both parties are willing to move beyond that's their business I guess.

    I get it, their constituents are angry and they want someone to punish. But it's part an parcel of this victim mentality and overblown reaction cycle many progressives have become trapped in. No rational considerations, no reliance on evidence, no chance for appeal, no chance for redemption, nothing... Just the stake and the fire.

    That's the most hilarious part.... they have to do this because they have to appear that they give a s*** because of the whole Roy Moore situation. It's very transparent

    You sexually assaulted me years earlier. Now prove you didn't.

    And like I said, many guys enjoy dating "young legal girls".

    But that is different from saying he assaulted underage 14 year old girls.

    You really can't tell the difference?

    A man who enjoys dating young girls in their early 20's is a pervert?

    God Damn! No wonder you think the way you do. Girls must have rejected you EVERY DAY which is why you hate on men like Moore who can actually get laid.

    He apologized for what happened regarding that picture. She accepted his apology. Guess there's no moving on. A lot of jabber about #metoo but any other images? Any corroborating witnesses? Any audio? Any video?

    That is the difference. Trump never admitted to "doing it" nor did he ever apologize. In fact, he vowed to one day sue them.

    This is ridiculous... lol...

    the reason they had to come down hard is because case after case after case after case of them not doing a damn thing about it.

    They fed Al to the wolves just to get the upper hand on Roy Moore. classy. look at all of accusations against Al.... the most recent one...he grabbed a woman's hip during a picture....like who gives a fuck. Really. But he got fed to the Wolves just so the dems can have a fake moral High Ground. How can you not see that Jack?

    He didn't vow to "One day" sue them. He said after his campaign he would sue them. I wonder why he hasn't sued them...

    The main thing is Franken did not deny he DIDN'T do it. And that speaks volumes to me my friend.

    Like if somebody asked me did I ever touch a man's butt I would not say "I don't remember" I would say affirmatively NO!

    She said he touched her. The media reported he touched her. He did not deny he touched her.

    All that said, it was a fucking juvenile prank and not assault.

    Sucks, but what is happening to him is basically just the blowback of his side politicizing everything. There is no middle ground where something looks kinda bad but it isn't bad.

    As of now, all this shit is being lumped together as assault

    Again, personal accounts are evidence. When they have similar characteristics between people that don't know each other and his colleagues also talked about his bizarre behavior that makes the claims very believable. We also have his pathetic responses to the charges which he couldn't even bring himself to say no. He said things like, "I don't recall dating women that young". The whole thing is plausible to any reasonable person.

    BTW, plausible means that the claims are reasonable or probable. Seems like you think the word is equivalent to the standard required to convict someone in court, which is a misunderstanding on your part.

    I read the statute of limitations have long passed, so no, he should not go to jail according to the law down there.

    I don't know if there is enough evidence to convict him, but there is enough to keep him out of office. When you keep bringing this up it shows you are not even trying to understand what people are writing.

    If other people came out and made the claim and my colleagues also confirmed I was up to weird stuff and when I was asked I said "I don't remember raping people, but it was a long time ago" it may not land me in jail but it sure as fuck would be enough that I should be stopped from running for office.

    What other evidence do you need? There is a PHOTO revealing what happened.

    And if a photo appeared of some teacher touching a girls breasts would you want us to just "move on and forget it" or would you be demanding that teachers firing?
