Democrats pick and choose their battles – said nobody.
Whenever a Republican is accused of sexual harassment liberals pounce.
But whenever the opposite occurs, Dems want to sit back and evaluate all the information.
Talk about hypocrisy.
Check out what celebrity astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson has been accused of…
“Cosmos” host and renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s employers are investigating multiple allegations of sexual misconduct involving co-workers and colleagues years ago.
FOX and National Geographic, which co-produce “Cosmos”, say they are looking into the allegations which surfaced this week. Patheos published the claim from Bucknell University Professor Dr. Katelyn Allers that Tyson groped her in 2009.
And the claim of rape:
Two women came forward to accuse deGrasse Tyson of misconduct Thursday in a story on the website Patheos. In 2014, a former classmate of deGrasse Tyson’s at the University of Texas in Austin accused him of rape in a blog post.
Musician Tchiya Amet claimed in 2014 that deGrasse Tyson drugged and raped her while they were both in school in the 1980s.
Likewise, the mainstream media oftentimes look the other way.
From Daily Wire:
Stephen Bittel, a real-estate billionaire and former head of the Florida Democratic Party, is being sued for allegedly sexually harassing a female employee.
Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN with host Jake Tapper to discuss the hearings of Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh.
She got choked up when mentioning that she feels for women who have suffered sexual abuse, then admitted she was assaulted in the past.
Where’s the #MeToo crowd?
Doesn’t Kellyanne’s voice matter?

“I feel very empathetic frankly for victims of sexual assault sexual harassment and rape that … I’m a victim of sexual assault. I don’t expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that. You have to be responsible for your own conduct. This is not Bill Cosby. Those comparisons on your network are a disgrace and the anchor should have called them out. This is not even Bill Clinton. You have Senate Judiciary Committee members who refused to remove Bill Clinton from office after he received oral sex in the Oval Office and lied about it to a grand jury as President of the United States. The hypocrisy is ridiculous. And if not one Senate Judiciary Committee member changes his or her vote because of what they learned from the FBI investigation, that tells you all you need to know about what the president and Judge Kavanaugh has said is a sham. Let’s just be honest what this is about. It’s raw partisan politics. All women can’t, you know, I wan’t those women who were sexually assaulted the other day who were confronting Jeff Flake, ‘God bless them.” But go blame the perpetrator. That’s who is responsible for our sexual assaults. The people who commit them.”
When women make up stories of sexual assault in order to destroy the lives of men with whom they disagree, all they’re doing is hurting the arguments for women who have actually been abused.
Take this woman, for example.
She accused then-SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
She now admits she made up the whole story because she didn’t want Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court justice.
BREAKING: This is quite a read. Woman who claimed Justice Kavanaugh raped her now admits they’ve never even met. She’s been referred to DOJ/FBI for investigation and could soon be in serious legal trouble. https://t.co/QhFXt9yhRn

Here’s the letter released by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA):
On September 25, 2018, staffers for Senator Harris, a Committee member, referred an undated handwritten letter to Committee investigators that her California office had received signed under the alias “Jane Doe” from Oceanside, California.
The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh. The anonymous accuser alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her “several times each” in the backseat of a car. In addition to being from an anonymous accuser, the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any timeframe, and failed to provide any location — beyond an automobile — in which these alleged incidents took place.
Committee investigators began investigating Ms. Munro-Leighton’s allegations. Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky.
Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original “Jane Doe” letter. When directly asked by Committee investigators if she was, as she had claimed, the “Jane Doe” from Oceanside California who had sent the letter to Senator Harris, she admitted: “No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention. I am not Jane Doe . . . but I did read Jane Doe’s letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee. . . . I saw it online. It was news.”
She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”; (2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.” She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination. Regarding the false sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.”
When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: “Oh Lord, no.”
In short, during the Committee’s time-sensitive investigation of allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, Ms. Munro-Leighton submitted a fabricated allegation, which diverted Committee resources. When questioned by Committee investigators she admitted it was false, a “ploy,” and a “tactic.” She was opposed to Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
