Democrats Sen. Sherrod Brown have been accused of making ‘unwanted, sudden’ advance against woman in 1980s.
It’s amazing how putting a shoe on the other foot can change a man.
Let’s take Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, as an example. He’s running for re-election in a state President Trump won in 2016. The campaign of his GOP opponent, Jim Renacci, claims that he’s recently been accused of sexual misconduct by an unnamed woman.
Now let’s take a look at how this has changed Brown’s reactions to uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct.
First off, here’s what he said after Christine Blasey Ford testified about her allegations against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh last month:
Mr. Renacci has used Mr. Brown’s contentious 1986 divorce and separate uncorroborated allegations of abuse as a way to paint Mr. Brown as hypocritical for voting “no” on confirming Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who faced his own allegations of sexual misconduct.
Mr. Renacci said in a statement Thursday that this new allegation raises “even more questions and alarm over Mr. Brown’s conduct toward women.
So here’s a question: Where exactly is the line between the moving, heartfelt, honest, and powerful and the desperate and shameful? After all, the accusations both came from sources with clear partisan motives, both have so far presented the same amount of corroborating evidence, and both became public at the 11th hour of a major political event. We should know who is telling the truth and let justice take it’s course without bias.
