Most everyone in the known world. Another Democrat bites the dust.
Inevitable swings in scandals always eventually come back to influence the other party. Republicans, of course, are relatively resistant to inconsistent behavior and consider hypocrisy to be a party plank, so perhaps they have some innate resistance to any sense of moral outrage or guilt or social accountability. However, I suspect it is only a matter of time (or Mueller) before there are plenty of Republican with behavior to account for.

The Russians were accused of interfering in our political process so why can't they be behind the recent recent publication of long-forgotten events as a way to destabilize our political system and to destroy confidence in our politicians?

Are we electing humans or perfect angels? If the person hasn't committed a felony or is actively engaged in outrageous behavior what he did decades ago is irrelevant to me.

Really? You have no higher standard for physicians, nurses, public servants, police, firefighters, elected officials than that they have no felony convictions?
How about unproven felony charges? How many misdemeanors would be a problem? What about drunk driving or a little interest in child pornography?

The governor is elected to represent all the people of his state and derogatory behavior, especially on an issue so problematic as race, compromises his job through the controversy and uncertainty it brings to his leadership ability.

I find it confusing to answer but I think Sigmund Freud got it right and he was hooked on Cocaine and other hard drugs. Go to Drunk School.

When controversial issues come up you should tell everyone what their approved position should be.

As I said before, if something bad happened to you don't wait years and decades before revealing it to smear the perpetrator because if you do I will laugh in your face.

Now tell us your sad story so that I can have a good laugh.
you have no clue what you are talking about, period. the more words you vomit the worse it gets. stfu and get a grip, because anyone with a brain is already having a good laugh at your expense.

If you were walking down the street and got mugged would you be too ashamed to immediately report it? If you got raped would you be too ashamed to report it and therefore let the rapist remain free? Unless you intend to kill the guy yourself you should report it or just go have a beer and forget about it. I have zero sympathy for anyone who waits years extending into decades before whining about what some guy did to them. Such cases get an automatic "Not Guilty" verdict from me.
So if a couple of guys beat you up and then decided to sodomize you, just to show you how powerless and worthless you are, you would head to the police station immediately to report it?

Do you understand how trauma works on the human mind?
