    Rep for river calling out Pelosi, Boxer and Feinstein for going with party over principle until the fourth accuser came forward!

    How did this guy EVER get elected? Like... he'd have to have been Robert Redford to navigate all this stuff and make it into office. Unreal.

    Warning... This is where it gets partisan...

    It's because democrats can ignore past personal transgressions in favor of a good democrat. Just so long as the candidate toes the party line, that candidate can be a serial womanizer... Until it interferes with his being a good democrat, and only then does he have to go...

    This also enables a democrat to lie. So long is the lie is good for the Democratic Party, they can overlook the lies... Anthony Weiner, for example... The setting claims had been out there for weeks before he resigned... He said he didn't do it, and THAT was good enough for the other democrats to rally around him... Until the pictures were made public.

    you guys really want to keep this up? Let me know when the Republicans vote Vitter out. Or when they reject Mark Sanford?

    Actually, there is a difference in how Republicans and Democrats treat accusations of sexual harassment. When women accused Filner, the Democrats are calling him a creep and asking that he step down.
    When women accused Herman Cain, Republicans accused the women of lying. And you had this:

    Ask John McCain and Newt Gingrich's first wives how punishing the Republican Party is against men who go outside their marriage while one was hospitalized and the other being treated for cancer. Or Gingrich's second wife.

    Take off your bias shades. Both parties have allowed flawed characters to rise to power.

    apparently I have.

    The saying that a broken clock is correct twice a day doesn't even apply to Pelosi and Boxer.
