You do understand, don't you, the most damning piece of evidence that Republicans are relying on is an interview on Larry King that names no one. There were other men in the Senate that had problems with sexual harassment at that time.

Sen. Hirono: Men Need To "Shut Up," Kavanaugh Accuser Needs To Be Believed And I Believe Her
Posted By Ian Schwartz
On Date September 18, 2018
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told men to "shut up and step up" when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh's sexual assault accusation. Asked whether her being one of four women on the Senate Judiciary Committee impacts the Kavanaugh confirmation proceedings, Senator Hirono says, "I just want to say to the men of this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change."

Soon enough, I keep repeating, no politician is going to be good enough to run as Democrat, you guys have made your own grave with your standards.
"Not only do women like Dr. Ford, who bravely comes forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed. They need to be believed," Hirono said. "We cannot continue the victimization and the smearing of someone like Dr. Ford."
"We have to create an environment where women can come forward and be heard and be listened to. I want to thank Dr. Ford. I commend her courage. I believe her," the Senator said.
Hirono told the media that she would "expect the members of the press" to "talk about how unfair" Kavanaugh's accuser is being treated at a press conference Tuesday evening.

Why can't Reade get the same benefit Ford got? Basically the standard set was that women should be believed no matter what. It turns out only certain women to certain men.
Why are Republicans always the ones to set the tone? More importantly, why do Republicans only support the accusers when it benefits them? Republicans want everyone to be like them, fine. Let's do it. Let's call Reade a liar and opportunist. Let's accuse her of making false statements at every turn. Republicans were not willing to listen to Ford for those reasons. So, let's be consistent. Seems fair. Or, go back and understand that Ford was telling the truth? Maybe then we will take this sudden change of heart by Republicans seriously. But, right now, we can not and we should not. Republicans did not want us to believe Ford then but want us to believe Reade now. Republicans laughed and mocked and shut down Ford then but demand Reade be given her day. At least be consistent.
Again: Democrats are being consistent. There are holes in her story. She had all these years of #metoo to come forward but she did not. Until now. And the most crucial piece of evidence is a phone call to Larry King.
But, Republicans and the MAGA cult members have made up their minds. What good would it do? State media sides with Reade before any testimony or trial. Biden is already guilty on all charges.
Nope, I am not saying I believe her, nor I am telling you to believe her. All I am saying, the Democrats and the democrat media made a standard. And they forced us to accept that standard. Now that almost the same situation is happening but in their side, they are not abiding by their own set standards.
So lets stop pretending we care about things, because we don't. Its all politics, that's the reality. Look how the democratic nomination ended, all white men, wealthy. Democrats are the most hypocrites in the US political scene. Not saying republican's aren't, but your standards which you always set, can't even be met when it happens on your side.
