I think Al Frankin got the rawest deal. Cuomo(i guess I'm superficial/juvenile) reminds me of a bulldog, he's probably not getting a lot of females pursuing him. Nope, I've got no expertise in these topics.
JFK was nailing babes on a regular basis.
These are human things/drives...we all get it. Does it affect the ability of a person to lead, guide, or innovate?
Trump is like a predator. A different intent, an ugly type of relationship.
It's probably not popular to say this but women can play a role in these incidents too but we rarely hold them accountable?
These guys that fool around, it ought to be between them, their spouses, and any 3rd party IMO. Unless they're full-blown sicko perverts.
The Repugs are supposed to be the puritanical, religious, upstanding people, but too often their priests, pastors, boy scout leaders, turn out to be predatory pervs... They don't seem to care too much about it. Yet they prosecuted Clinton like he had supported a traitorous insurrection, plotted a coup, and had an affair with a skanky porn actress. (Trump fell in love with an overweight Korean dictator too)
Dems are much quicker to eat their own. I kinda don't get the calculation here.
Short for eat one's own kind or similar, as certain living organisms do. r
eat one's own (third-person singular simple present eats one's own, present participle eating one's own, simple past ate one's own, past participle eaten one's own)To turn on and attack members of one's own group or clique.
I agree that Al Franken bot a raw deal. When he resigned on January 2, 2018, he was essentially a "sacrificial lamb".
You may remember that pedophile Roy Moore from Alabama was running for office (with Trump's support) in late 2017. In November 2017, during his special election campaign for U.S. Senate, several public allegations of sexual misconduct were made against Moore. Three women stated that he had sexually assaulted them when they were at the respective ages of 14, 16 and 28. Moore acknowledged that he may have approached and dated teenagers while he was in his 30s, but denied that any of the girls were underage or that he had sexually assaulted anyone. President Donald Trump endorsed Moore a week before the election, after which some Republicans withdrew their opposition to Moore. Democrat Doug Jones won the election, becoming the first Democrat since 1992 to win a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama.
By resigning, Franken made it possible for Democrat Doug Jones to defeat Roy Moore, thereby avoiding the inevitable "what aboutism" that the Republicans would be likely to use against him.
Both Kennedy and Bill Clinton were guilty of sexual improprieties, but managed to stay in office. If you've read "The House of Kennedy", but James Patterson, ALL of the Kennedy men cheated on their spouses. Joe Kennedy Sr. once offered Jackie $1 million if she stayed married to Jack.
Andrew Cuomo is not the first New York governor to be forced from office
Cuomo will be replaced by Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, who will be the FIRST female governor of New York.
William Sulzer is the first, and only, New York governor to be impeached and convicted. He was in office from January 1 to October 17, 2013. The early part of the 20th century is when Tammany Hall controlled things, so there are few other guys who SHOULD have been tossed from office.
