Review: All the Politicians Caught in the #MeToo Trap
While many have been preoccupied with the explosion in sexual assault allegations in Hollywood, there have been just as many high-profile cases emerging in politics. Both Democrats and Republicans alike have seen major names cast into the spotlight amid accusations.
Of course, with so many accusations being bandied about so often, it can get difficult to keep track of who’s in the crossfire. Here’s an overview.
Roy Moore, who was President Donald Trump’s pick for Alabama senator, recently felt the heat as he was accused of sexual misconduct with underage girls. This was right before the Alabama senate race, in which he ultimately lost.
President Trump himself has also been accused, both before he came into office and now once again that sexual misconduct is being revisited in politics. There’s no further news to report there, though.
On the Democrat’s side, Minnesota Senator Al Franken has made a lot of headlines for his sexual misconduct. Unlike other accusations, in which swift action was taken, Franken took his time in announcing his resignation. The most recent news as of this week is that he may be “unresigning,” which could be quite troublesome if it does indeed come to pass.
Alex Kozinski, the 9th Circuit Judge, has worked in federal appeals for nearly 40 years. He too has just been very recently forced into retirement due to allegations of sexual misconduct. He had 15 complaints of all sorts dating back years.
At first, Kozinski tried to deny the accusations, but they eventually grew in number and he was forced to face the truth. Likewise, an exit from a justice in the California Court of Appeal went down in much the same fashion.
While each case is unfortunate and different in its own way, it’s Moore’s that’s been discussed the most. See the video below for more on Moore’s sexual misconduct allegations.
