Apparently the infamous Roger Stone -- professional pile of toxic sludge and unofficial Trump operative -- knew about the Franken sexual abuse accusations before they hit the newspapers.

I don't know what's going on here.

If it turns out that Roger Stone's fingerprints are on this in any way, then the Dems were played and Franken was potentially railroaded (keeping in mind that he still denies everything but the photo). Only someone of Stone's moral caliber could weaponize a women-empowering movement.

This is how a legit movement dies.

One could already argue it was an issue before him. Conservatives in general have a movement that almost assumes the women are lying. Not all but enough. And the men counter movement is basically that. It is not unique to Stone. Stone just turned it around on Dems in general.

The irony is that Dem's will typically step down. GOP is hit or miss. Some do, but Moore did not and Trump has not. So, it has not hurt them as much as one would think. Moore lost, so I guess it was not totally true but those that backed he and Trump are very much that mentality.

Stone is a flame thrower and an idiot. Frankin, as far as I know, has said some of the other allegations are potentially credible. I recall that. One of them was from a very conservative woman, not that it matters, but has a history that makes some of the accusations a bit questionable.

He did the right thing honestly. I have liked the guy but he did the right thing.

That said, if there is a system where only one side pays a consequence for past actions like this than it leads to nothing good. As different standards are not good things.

It is also telling about the views of some of these core voters. At one point the actions of a candidate affected their electability in the first place. Now it is, so long as they support the things I want they are fine and can be forgiven.
