Sexual Harassment Charges
Sexual harassment is a crime, yet too many victims see fit to wait until the perpetrator is running for an important office, say President, before coming forward and pointing the accusing finger, usually with a high-profile lawyer in tow. I take any form of sexual crimes seriously and sympathize with the victims. I however, can’t help but question their credibility and motives when they come out of the woodwork after years of being silent.
Noteworthy is Republican Presidential candidate, Herman Cain. He was riding a tide of popularity until a couple of women came forward to state that he had acted inappropriately towards them back in the 1990s. Apparently, their case was settled and that was that. (Not sure if money changed hands).
In a way, this could be taken as the women doing their part to make sure the electorate know that the person they are voting for has got skeletons in their closet, even if this may or may not take away from their effectiveness in doing their job.
