The same leftist jackanapes insisting that rape is so serious that a woman’s accusation should always be treated as proof-positive that a rape occurred have been somewhat… um… inconsistent … in the application of that doctrine in the past. There is Juanita Broaddrick, as one example. But the progressive left was also quick to defend Hillary Clinton’s defense of a rapist, which consisted mainly of painting the 12 year old victim as a slut who had it coming to her.
And Glenn Reynolds has found several other examples of occasions when the left has been willing to give a rapist a pass. The one thing they all have in common? The accused is a prominent Democrat.
