    Sexual harassment charges are running wild & seemingly out of control.
    Either all these people are sexual predators or we have some liars in the mix.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Congress needs to address this if possible. There needs to be some kind of built in protections for the innocent who are wrongly accused. A statute of limitations on allegations that lead to criminal or civil charges perhaps?

    I mean what's to stop me from looking up old college classmates who've become wealthy and throwing out bullshit accusations in the hopes of a payday?
    I' pretty sure that the pursuit of happiness does not include the right to be wrongfully accused of a crime.

    We are crossing into territory from which their is likely no return. Do we just sit by and watch this happen or say enough, if you were raped/assaulted FUCKING REPORT IT WHEN IT HAPPENED not 10 15 20 or even 30 years later...

    Are we so desperate to destroy our political adversaries that we consider ruining their lives and the lives of their families as a fair trade in our efforts to defeat them?

    This shit has to stop, it's eating our nation from within.

    Report it immediately.
    Provide evidence.
    Provide witnesses.
    He said, she said is simply not gonna cut it anymore in my book.


    And to be clear this thread is not a result of any particular person or accusation. It's just my observation of what looks like a semi rolling down the highway without a driver.

    That doesn't protect their job or their families or their stature in the public. All of that is destroyed immediately when these types of things are brought up regardless of their validity.

    Flood the news with sexual allegations until no one cares any more ... abracadabra! Sexual assault is acceptable.

    So like culturally?
    Legal wise I'm not too informed on how these go about being solved but I guess some options are using more law enforcement resources in the investigative process and accept the cons that come with that.

    So you'e ok with someone suddenly claiming rape THIRTY YEARS LATER???

    I'm suggesting that claims like that be dismissed immediately.

    the problem outside corrupt politics is that no one believes in law and rules anymore . Its amazing that a 5 , 10 year old , 30 year old accusation of unwanted and unreported sexual touching , sexual harassment would be taken seriously .

    If you didn't report it in a timely fashion you lose. Careers are being destroyed. This is not how America is suppose to work. I blame the media and greedy people. Now it's being used as a political weapon. That has to be shunned immediately. It is very dangerous for America for unproven accusations to change the outcome of an election.
    The people get it but the swamp thinks it will still work...they will never learn.

    I'd like to see a law that if you accuse and your accusations are proven false you go to the slammer.

    Britain does it.

    UK rape hoaxer gets 10 years in prison

    [​IMG]

    A British woman dubbed an "attention-seeking" liar for falsely accusing 15 men of rape and sexual assault during four separate encounters was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison.

    Jemma Beale, 25, was found guilty at London's Southwark Crown Court in July on four counts of perjury and four counts of perverting the course of justice, The Sun reported. Judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith called Beale a "convincing liar" who liked being pitied as the victim.

    "This trial has revealed, what was then not obvious, that you are a very, very convincing liar and you enjoy being seen as a victim," Loraine-Smith said in court. "The prosecution described your life as a 'construct of bogus victimhood.'"
