Remember how Democrats attempted to discredit Paula Jones when she leveled accusations of sexual harassment against the then-sitting President of the United States? Of course, they based their descriptions of Clinton’s accuser not on the facts of her life, but on prejudices against lower middle class white women. “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park,” Clinton advisor James Carville said, “you never know what you’ll find.”
Well, now that Herman Cain’s first accuser has been identified, we’re finding that she’s not similar to another image from left-wing lore, the hard-working women victimized by the evil Republican boss. Now, to be sure, some bosses are indeed boorish and to prey on their attractive female employees. And they should be held to account for their actions.
But, it doesn’t seem Herman Cain is such a man. Seems the woman who accused the Republican of sexual harassment filed another complaint at her next job. Ace, who alerted me to the article speculates that she suffers from “Complainey-Face Syndrome“:
Kraushaar’s former supervisor at the INS, who was named in Kraushaar’s complaint, characterized the 2003 complaint to ABC News as “frivolous,” and said Kraushaar may have been offered a few extra sick days as compensation.
The supervisor alleged that Kraushaar had a “poor work ethic.”
The supervisor, a self-described Democrat, decided to speak out about Kraushaar’s complaint because of “doubts about her credibility.”
This is why it is unfair for women accusing of sexual harassment to hide behind their anonymity. When they’re anonymous, we can’t confirm the veracity of their accusations. “She,” Ace adds
. . . tried to get a ridiculous amount of money out of the INS — plus a pricey paid year off and paid tuition at grad school! — over a vague complaint of “unfair treatment.” Because she wasn’t permitted to work from home — how many people are? or were, especially, in 2002 or whenever?
You can bet if the accused were a Democrat, our friends at Politico would have unearthed this information before filing their story. And if, on that occasion, they even ran the story, the past of the accuser would play a very prominent part, perhaps figuring in its very headline.
