Serially accused sexual abuser Bill Clinton’s past may be finally catching up to him as prominent liberals and journalists finally begin questioning why he got a free pass, while others are brought down based on far less serious acusations:
A number of prominent liberals and journalists have recently called for a reevaluation of the merit of the sexual assault allegations against former Democratic President Bill Clinton.
“I Believe Juanita,” wrote liberal New York Times journalist Michelle Goldberg, arguing that Juanita Broaddrick’s claim of having been raped by Bill Clinton in an Arkansas hotel room rang true after dozens of women leveled similar accusations at Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Still, Goldberg argued she was justified in disbelieving the claims against Clinton during his presidency, arguing it was Republicans’ fault for pushing conspiracies that made her discount other, more credible claims.
The Atlantic‘s Caitlin Flanagan also called for a “reckoning” of Clinton. “Feminists saved the 42nd president of the United States in the 1990,” she wrote. “They were on the wrong side of history…”
“It was a pattern of behavior; it included an alleged violent assault; the women involved had far more credible evidence than many of the most notorious accusations that have come to light in the past five weeks,” she notes.
As is well known, Bill Clinton was also famously accused of sexually harassing Paula Jones, and groping Kathleen Wiley. Clinton eventually settled out of court with Jones for $850,000
What do you think? Is it time Bill Clinton finally gets what’s coming to him for years of alleged sexual harassment and abuse of women?
