OUCH!

Cokie Roberts is a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, but it seems even she has had all she can take:

NPR’s Cokie Roberts: Press Corps Covered Up Congressional Sexual Misconduct ‘For Years’

by John Nolte, 28 Nov 2017

Appearing on ABC’s This Week, National Public Radio’s Cokie Roberts admitted that “for years” the female press corps has covered up sexual misconduct on Capitol Hill.

While speaking about John Conyers and Al Franken, two Democrats facing numerous sexual misconduct allegations, Roberts let this bomb matter-of-factly drop on the left-wing Sunday show,

“I mean, we all talked about for years: ‘Don’t get in the elevator with him,’ you know, and the whole every-female in the press corps knew that, right, don’t get in elevator with him.”

Which “him” is Roberts referring to? Conyers? Franken? Are there others?

But back up just a moment– According to Roberts, “every” woman in the press corps knew that there was sexual misconduct going on in congress, knew that it was so brazen and so permissive that not even a female reporter was safe on an elevator, and NO ONE REPORTED IT?

No one bothered to inform the public?

How do things get so brazen that a Conyers or a Franken or a whomever feels perfectly  safe groping a journalist on an elevator? I will tell you how — when said groper knows there will be no accountability for his behavior.

I am 51-years-old, and I have seen a bit of the world;  I have seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and I have watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. But something I have never seen is a man grope a woman without her consent.

Yet, according to Roberts, our wonderful, glorious, utterly useless press corps knew for years this was going on in congress and covered it up, said nothing, let it slide, ENABLED IT, and through their silence, encouraged it.

What else are they covering up? What else are they allowing to happen in order to protect scumbags?

Other than the fact that our elites suck, this is my theory…

As we all know, Cokie Roberts is a lefty, as is 99% of the female press corps. Does anyone doubt, then, that the primary elevator gropers are/were Democrats, are/wereTed Kennedy/Franken/Conyers-types who voted the way in which the females press corps wanted them to vote, so a little snatch of media-bootie in an elevator was considered a small price to pay for abortion-on-demand?

And this is why, in my opinion, congress has gotten away  with covering up these taxpayer-funded sexual harassment settlements for two decades. The media has known about this. Of course they have. Nothing was reported, though, because the names on that list are primarily Democrat “icons” like Conyers.

Even now, even when we know about this secret fund, the media’s interest in the story, in exposing the wrongdoers, is practically non-existent. This should be the biggest story in the world, the narrative dominating everything else. It is all there — a $17 million slush fund, cover ups, corruption, sex — but the media does not really care. Just last week, the left-wing Politico was downplaying this outrage, hoping to wrist-flick it all away. And I think we all know why…

Democrats sure got it good.

So good, in fact, Cokie is still not being asked to name names."

Remember the Foley scandal that the Democrats milked for all it's worth and took over the House because the Republican's culture of Corruption? This is where the Republican's don't have the balls to fight like the Democrats do. Why isn't McConnell calling for Frankens head when they are saying they won't accept Moore.

Ya'll will also likely remember that Senator Teddy Kennedy and Senator Thomas Dodd were legendary for their 'waitress sandwiches' in Washington, DC restaurants.

And Kennedy killed a woman and STILL got elected. Says a lot about MA.

Not only that, The Dems honored him at their Convention a few years ago, devoting almost :30 in a tribute towards him.

After all, he was 'so good on women's issues.'

Says a lot about Dems.

And I don't think it too extreme a thought to suggest that some claims paid out to some of these women got kicked back right into Dem coffers for getting more Dems elected. They are, no doubt, Dem voters to begin with so would it be any surprise to think that the Dems set up a system whereby they can take tax payer money to run their campaigns?

I have to ask, who are all these weak, spineless, and helpless women who didn't have the courage to speak up at the time, but suddenly do years later?

My wife couldn't care less if it's a left or right hand doing the groping. The groper would get a swift kick to the balls, then a visit from law enforcement.

I will be so glad when this nonsense goes away.

everyone knows it's been like this forever in Washington. I don't see how this is a surprise to anyone.

What's surprising is that on what's become a fairly regular basis lately, some lefty is admitting the truth about the Clintons, sexual misconduct, whatever.

The Dems will somehow turn this into "research" for women's rights.

On one of the Sunday morning shows two days ago, 'Stuart Smalley' apologized for doing the things he claimed he had no memory of doing, then also said he would change his behavior so that the things he doesn't remember doing wouldn't happen again.

I swear, you can't make this stuff up!

What's more, seeing that was the first time Franken ever made me laugh.

The reason they didn’t report it from dem or rep was to protect their reputation and career. It’s not a dem or rep problem. It’s a ego godlike power problem.

I saw an interview with Cokie last night and she was asked what was the most annoying thing about Mat Lauer. She said, that he continually pinched her on the ass.

Interesting thought Matt. My wife and I had this very discussion last night while watching the Matt Lauer coverage.

She has spent 25 years working at an automotive OEM, and the last 10 at a Govt. contractor. She told me that she has had MULTIPLE situations that would be considered sexual harassment, but never once did she feel trapped, or unable to say no. She simply made it obvious that it wasn't acceptable and that it would never happen again...and it didn't.

She also told me that she witnessed just as many women trying to sleep their way up the ladder as being forced to.

If the list of congress people bailed out with the "slush fund" is ever released, those individuals should be forced to pay the money back.

From: Woods Walker

Exactly. And if they won't/can't, then treat the bastards just like the IRS would treat US if we won't/can't.......take our homes, strip our bank accounts,etc. and with these SOBs put them in forced labor until their debt to us is paid off.

Don't forget the piece of trash from southern Arizona, Raul Grijalva. Just reported that we paid his employee off for not accusing him of harassment. With taxpayer funds.

You know why Repubs aren't calling for Franken's head? Because they probably all have skeletons in their closet - even McCain. I guarantee it. Probably a couple female senators banging their male interns too. I can just see Feinstein getting freaky with some cool whip and a leather helmet!
