Rear view mirror. Back to the future. What if Bill Clinton’s accusers in Arkansas were believed as Roy Moore’s are in Alabama? The Atlantic ponders that thought. Dan Rather to Don Imus at the time regarding Juanita Broderick’s claim of rape which she contemporaneously reported to people, “That was a long time ago. People want to move forward.” Many such dismissals of Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones. And then there was that very young intern Monica Lewinsky.
The Washington Post did an investigative report on these cases, but was ignored by the Democrats and the media at large. In today’s New York Times, Michelle Goldberg’s column “I Believe Juanita.” So. Is it a culture thing? Should all women be believed? Have times changed?
