    Bill Clinton: A Reckoning

    The party needs to come to terms with the fact that it was so enraptured by their brilliant, Big Dog president and his stunning string of progressive accomplishments that it abandoned some of its central principles. The party was on the wrong side of history, and there are consequences for that. Yet expedience is not the only reason to make this public accounting. If it is possible for politics and moral behavior to coexist, then this grave wrong needs to be acknowledged. If Weinstein and Mark Halperin and Louis C. K. and all the rest can be held accountable, so can our former president and so can his party, which so many Americans so desperately need to rise again.

    I was half expecting to see a Congress Heal Thyself thread after reading CNN's article on sexual harassment on Capitol Hill.

    If a similar backlash were to make standing politicians resign, I wonder how it would affect the balance of power.

    Edit: So which party has more members on the "Creep List"? The article said it was particularly a problem with those politicians who slept in their offices.

    This happened in Utah

    Tom Sizemore Was Removed From Movie Set for Allegedly Violating 11-Year Old Girl


    A dozen cast and crewmembers tell THR that the actor was sent home after the girl told her parents about the incident.
    Actor Tom Sizemore was told to leave a Utah film set in 2003 after an 11-year-old actress told her mother that he had touched her genitals, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Months later, he returned for reshoots in Malibu after her parents declined to press charges. The incident has never been revealed publicly.

    When contacted, the now 26-year-old former actress, whom THR is not identifying at her request, declined to address the matter except to note that she's recently hired a lawyer to explore legal action against the actor as well as her parents. Sizemore declined to address the situation. "Our position is 'no comment,'" says his agent Stephen Rice.

    THR spoke to a dozen people involved with the production of the film, a crime thriller called Born Killers (shot as Piggy Banks). They confirmed Sizemore was sent home over the alleged incident. According to these cast- and crewmembers, rumors swirled and emotions rose on set over what had allegedly transpired.

    Sizemore, notorious for his long rap sheet that includes charges of drug use and battery against women, has not previously been accused of molestation. An actor with a tough-guy image then at the height of his scandal-driven infamy, when the Utah incident occurred he'd recently been convicted of physically abusing and harassing his ex-girlfriend, the former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss.

    No SOL on that. Could still be prosecuted if some enterprising DA decided to make some hay in the current political climate.

    Also, the thing in that or another article that was the most disturbing was that the girl's parents declined to press charges because they didn't want the girl to be removed from the movie cast. Talk about messed up priorities.

    Yet another article calling for a re-analysis of Bill Clinton:

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-polit...insky-resigned

    Bill Clinton should have resigned
    What he did to Monica Lewinsky was wrong, and he should have paid the price.

    Add Peyton Manning to the list...



    And he counts as Hollywood given that he is in their sex offender database.

    Didn't Clay Travis (yes, him) debunk that accusation against Manning? Or at least shed some serious doubt on it...

    I remember a CB post from years ago, about some limousine driver claiming Peyton was hooking up in in the car. Was that an Indy post? I always thought it was weird. PM never seemed like a dumb guy, why would he choose to have relations in front of some random driver, versus in a discreet location?

    But Franken doesn't remember and said the photo wasn't funny... So it is all good.

    Franken said he does not remember the incident the same way but acknowledged the photo "wasn't" funny.

    Ah, the old "I don't remember that" defense. I wonder if he'll throw in some "hey, I was drinking" for emphasis.

    To be fair, he didn't say he didn't remember the encounter, he just said he remembered it differently than the Accuser

    Stallone, and it's backed up by a police report. The girl was 16 which is the age of consent in Nevada. It never went anywhere because the girl decided not to pursue it.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    It's pretty bad. The girl was on vacation with her family and she met the kid from Over the Top in the hotel arcade. Over the Top was filming on location at that time. The kid introduced the girl to Stallone and she ends up in his hotel room.
