Conyers Sexual Harrassment?

Some folks just cannot resist the urge to debate current issues of the day...here's the place to satisfy your craving.

Conyers sounds like Bill Clinton. Sex addiction 101. Classic.
And when finally caught - self-destructive - of ones reputation and honor.

The plot thickens... apparently Conyers started talking about Chandra Levy to one of the women that turned down his sexual advances. You guys remember her don't you? Yeah... it didn't end well for her.

Conyers' kid... the one he wants to take his place... was arrested for stabbing his girlfriend during a domestic dispute.

Classy bunch of dudes right there...


Oh... and Franken is going to resign this week as well.

Me? I blame the feminists of the 90's. They all lined up to support the serial sexual predator in the White House. That sent a loud and clear message that you could get away with that behavior as long as you held the right political positions in public.

Nothing else matters in all sexual misconduct cases but that victims be taken seriously if and whenever they step forward to tell. Be they minors or adults, males or females.

Let the accused sue if they feel they have been accused wrongly.

Meanwhile priests, presidents, other politicians, other religious leaders, those in education, entertainment, the military, media, pro sports, the medical field, law enforcement, the justice system, any and all industries, any and all businesses big and small, as well as those in charitible work:
once accused they must all answer their accusers.

Those of us who protect our favorite accused - while damning those we don’t like - are dishonoring victims, and thinking only of ourselves.

Bill Clinton needed to be removed from office.

His seat will remain vacant until 2018 election - same as it was before his resignation. :smokin

I think it should just stay vacant until November. That's less than a year away. By the time they pull together a special election, all the logistics involved in holding an election are done, all the candidates do all their posturing, it's going to be April before the election happens. Why spend all the taxpayer money it cost to hold an election, for such a short term in office?

Now if Snyder wants to just appoint someone in the interim, that's fine with me.

Here's what I don't know:
Can he appoint anyone he wants?
Does it have to be a Democrat ?
If it does have to be a Democrat, what incentive does he have to appoint someone?
Can he decide to just not fill the seat?

He can call for a special election but the seat stays vacant and Michigan law is very lenient compared to other places. We don’t do mandatory elections x days after resignation, death or whatever, temporary appointments etc...

NS is right...

I didn't explain it very well.
