1. Way off base.
Your statement is so wrong in so many ways.

8. Maybe we should look into what she was wearing as well?
Perhaps she was just asking for it?

I'm not saying she was right or wrong, but when a woman makes an accusation and people start "looking into her past" based on that accusation, I just think that smells of, I don't know, anti-woman.

If something happens to my daughter I don't want her not to report it for worry of people "looking into her past."

14. Yeah.
I'm not a woman, but some of my favorite people are and this smacks of, I don't know, just something bad.

16. Really? Is Al Gore running for something?
Again, I'm not saying the woman is a Pollyanna, but this line of questioning is just not the right thing to do.

10. Look up I just did.
I'm a father and I love and value women. Again, not saying she's right, just don't like the line of questioning.

24. You are so right, we should never do any research on any woman that
accuse a former VP of sexual misconduct. We should just believe her story, as we do men that get accused of the same thing. :eyes:

27. Not what I'm saying at all.
Tell me, have you ever known a woman who was raped? You'd look at this differently if you had, I'm afraid.

Not everything is politics, sometimes there is just right and wrong.

37. I don't buy your argument or "concern". The woman in question has made a huge drama over nothing
and could well be a paid GOP shit stirrer.

The OP is right to ask if this woman has made a habit of this kind of crap in the past.

It's a valid question when someone has the audacity to tell a full of shit bodice buster type story like that. :puke:

38. What is the fascination with quotation marks today?
First "woman" and now "concern". I guess you are calling me a name based on the use of the quotation, funny.

Frankly, I don't care what kind of "woman" she is, I care that all woman are not afraid to report abuse.

I have daughters.

39. Don't go there. I called you no names, but I do think you protest too much
and have posted way too much on this thread to protect a woman who is spewing some serious shit about someone who doesn't deserve it.

Hell, she pretty much slandered Gore and you sound ok with that!

Like :wtf: dude! Is this democratic underground anymore???!!!


FYI, I could give a shit if she is a man or woman, because in my book she is a piece of shit low life scum to do that to anyone-not just Gore.

And I say that AS A WOMAN, so maybe my POV trumps yours.

3. a very suspicious accusation thrown out by her.
I, for one, do not believe it. Sounds very suspicious, aimed to harm a very influential person, at a history changing moment (disastrous gusher from the ocean not being contained and bound to be a marker in the downturn of the natural world's health.)

21. It was certainly overstated
I mean, honestly, a masseuse leaving town because a former customer is going to visit someone else because getting groped left her so horribly traumatized? Does she have no control over which clients she sees? A masseuse who has never, ever gotten groped by anyone alone in a hotel room before or since?

Shoot, anybody groped me while I was a nurse got a warning in no uncertain terms about what would happen if he ever tried it again and that was usually that.

While the incident might have happened, her overstatement is shooting her credibility all to hell. Overstating an incident is always a mistake and that's what smacks of a Republican smear job.

He's not in office. Why would you care?

Do you think that maybe she's not actually a woman? :shrug:

17. What other names "harlot'? "temptress" ?
Seriously people, isn't this the same rag that broke the story about Edwards? Let's not run this woman through the mud just because of who she's making the accusation about. None of us have any idea what happened and won't until we have more information.

19. I don't know what to believe but I will tell you this, when Clinton looked into the camera
and called Monica Lewinsky "that woman", I was pretty pissed off.

20. you stepped into an already established fistfight
...and I sense that you did it unthinkingly. I believe you when you say you value women. Here's the thing: women who really have been assaulted by men throughout history are often accused of using their "wiles" to make the attack happen. It's a whole dangerous topic to step into.

Excuse them, they cannot see past what they want to read into your ONE sentence.

28. Why didn't you just use the word
"Whore", "slut", "tramp" or "prostitute"? Because those words are what I'm seeing reading between the lines of your post.

31. no, why would you give a drama/attention seeker the reward of drama/attention?
the case is closed, it has no merit, and the best thing to be done is ignore this type of person

stop giving media rewards/attention/drama to this element, and maybe they'll go away

do you want to give this type of person a drama pay-off? because that's just a stupid thing to do in my opinion

32. I think I understand your post.
While I agree that a woman's sexual, romantic past, etc. should not be questioned should she file a claim for unwanted sexual advances, I could see the relevance of knowing if perhaps this woman might have blackmailed someone before, etc.

Seems like you're taking a lot of heat here, and as I read your post, I don't think you meant anything other than to try to question the truthfulness of this woman's accusations against Gore. Am I right?

40. actually i was implying that Gore is being set up by
some right wing clown like the kid who set up acorn, possible in a lame attempt to slow down his progress on global warming. After all, who is going to go and listen to a sexual predator speak.
My mistake, it seems my fellow DUers don't agree. I think I will be vindicated though, when the truth comes out.
I'm kinda surprised at the beating I am taking for this opinion.

34. He's not in office, he's not running for office
How would it be any of my business? If you posted that here to stir things up (it's already been posted several times the past few weeks), it's not going to happen.
