These are images that cannot be flushed away nor should any male citizen ever try to walk away from.
“I have been thinking A LOT about Lindsey Graham’s bizarre statement that “This happens to us; it never happens to them. But let me talk to my Democratic friends: If this is the new norm, you better watch out for your nominees.”
Lindsey Graham was himself involved in the impeachment of Bill Clinton, so concern over and investigation into sexual misconduct clearly happens to “them,” meaning Democrats.
Within the last couple of years, two powerful Democrats in influential positions, Al Franken and Eric Schneiderman, were forced out of their elected seats.
Let’s also remember the fates of Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner.
But let’s remember most of all Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart, whose career was destroyed when the country learned that he was lying about his sexual activities.
There are of course a few notable exceptions (see: Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy), but by and large, the reason “this happens to [Lindsey Graham’s] us” but not to Democrats is that Democrats tend to withdraw support from the Brett Kavanaughs of the world, while Republicans are willing to whitewash their behavior and are outraged when others don’t go along. ” – Holly Welker
