James Toback, the Hollywood screenwriter and director of films like “The Gambler” and “Bugsy” was accused by multiple women of sexual
harassment. The women claimed that Toback would lure them to hotel rooms and other places for interviews or auditions. The women say the
meetings would quickly turn sexual in nature. The 41st president of the United States, George H.W. Bush, was also accused by actress Heather Lind of sexual assault. Two other women later came forward with their own similar accusations.
Two female journalists accused Michael Oreskes, top editor at NPR of making unwanted sexual advances towards them two decades ago. Actor Steven Seagal was accused by entertainment journalist Lisa Guerrero of having sexually harassed her in his home back in 1996.
The publisher and president of the magazine The New Republic, Hamilton Fish, has been accused of sexually harassing several women working
alongside him at the magazine.
The story of Anita Hill and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is well known by everyone, which was brought back to the scene very recently.
Roy Moore, nominee for U.S. Senate, was accused by three women of sexual molestation thirty something years ago.
Republicans are not the only ones on that list. Democratic Congressman John Conyers was exposed for allegedly sexually harassing a woman in
2015. The woman was later paid $27,000 to stay silent.
Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn was also accused of sexually harassing an employee of his — 40 years ago.President Donald J. Trump has also been accused by a long list of women of sexually assaulting and harassing them over the span of decades. But nobody can say anything derogatory of him after he became president.
Appeals Court Judge Alex Kozinski has also joined the list of men in disgrace. The Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting published a report
detailing sexual harassment and assault accusations against Rep. Dan Johnson.
Since everything is news of years past we cannot forget Senator Ted Kennedy, who also had his share of sexual improprieties, as well as
other men in his family.
Last comes the accusation of a sexual assault made more than thirty years ago by a woman, Christine Ford, against Supreme Court nominee
This case in particular shows a direct bullet to the heart of President Donald Trump. Why did this woman not come forward with her
story 12 years ago when President George W. Bush nominated Kavanaugh to serve as an appellate judge on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the
District of Columbia?
The Senate confirmed Kavanaugh after an FBI background check. That’s the only thing the FBI needs to do in this case: a background check to
evaluate whether the nominee poses a national security risk. A person doesn’t need to go to law school to know that it is not the FBI’s job to investigate the veracity of the woman’s accusations.
Democrats need to understand that we all live in houses with glass walls and that they also have a long tail someone could step on.
Our Almighty God did a good thing by taking his beloved son to his side or after years and years past, humanity would accuse Jesus Christ
of sexual molestation of Mary Magdalene.
