    Innocent until proven guilty. Due process. These things are just forgotten in so many ways.

    I agree whole heartedly with this. Absent criminal charges, it's the employers, those who have hired the miscreant to represent them, who must take action. In the case of elected officials, the employer is the voters. If they feel that it is in their interests to keep said miscreant, it's no one else's business.

    That only applies in criminal cases, that's why President Clinton was impeached for lying under oath, not for his other indiscretions.

    Oh, I know. I know.

    Though I will admit that I wish people would take that ethos into other spheres.

    I wish it would snowball faster, and that rather than wait for victims to come forward organizations would do anonymous surveys to find out the prevalence of harassment in their workplaces and work to stop it. There would be many examples I could give of hostile workplace environment comments in my current and previous job, and not just by men. Right now I work with some extremely raunchy women. Among other things they had male stripper in the office. But I would never report them without anonymity, because the mean girl mobbing would be horrendous.

    ETA It is possible to change a culture. The Air Force was mentioned above. I have two sisters-in-law who served in it, one in the 80's and one from 1995 to the present. They had totally different experiences, from prevalent then to nonexistent now sexual harassment.

    I work with some raunchy women too. Just today I was hanging out in a cubicle with two women colleagues. One is on the verge of getting engaged. The other asked: "Do you have a size limit on your ring?"
    The soon-to-be engaged one said: "No..."
    The other one said: "Because size matters!"

    Then they started giggling and they both looked at me and said: "Why didn't you laugh at that?"

    This round of sexual harrassment charges will not be co plete until women are brought in. Who will it be? Maybe Angelina Jolie, she was rather crazy in her early days. What about Susan Saranden? nah, I guess not.
    I cant help but think that Rosie OdDonnell is a bit of a lech.

    We shall see.
