How far back are we going to go to disqualify people from public office for sexual harrassment?

    Not 36 years, that is for sure.

    17 is fine if the candidate is under 25.

    Depends, are you a Republican or conservative? Then it might be when you were 2 or 3!

    If you are a Leftist? Then it NEVER applies, just ask Keith Ellison!

    sexual harassment is not the same as attempted sexual assault

    A race car driver actually lost a sponsor temporarily over something his father had said when he wasn't even born. This is freaking nuts.

    NASCAR Xfinity driver Conor Daly, 26, loses his sponsorship after his father admitted to using the N-word in a 1980s radio interview before his son was even born
    • Lilly Diabetes pulled its sponsorship of 26-year-old driver Conor Daly on Friday
    • Company said it was in response to the racially insensitive remark made by his father Derek Daly during an interview in the 1980s
    • Derek, who is a former driver, was fired from his job as a racing analyst after it resurfaced that he had said the N-word during the interview
    • Conor will make his NASCAR debut at the rural Wisconsin road course on Saturday with Roush Fenway Racing

    It sure isn't! But can you PROVE ANYTHING? If you can't, you are taking on persons word over the other, and that is DISCRIMINATION!

    It almost feels like that's where we are.
    The man has an exemplary record for his entire adult life yet here we are discussing what MIGHT have happened when he was 17 years old.

    At 14, 15 & 16 I was a HORRIBLE human being. At 17 I was in prison for my actions.
    Now 30 years later I am an upstanding member of society who owns a remodeling business and am as polite as polite can be in my actions with society in general. Yet there are those in society who would never hire me if they new the truth of my past. Nearly 20 years of perfect reports on Angie's List could not overcome my record for many in the public if they knew. In fact there are several on here who have said that I don't deserve that American staple, called a second chance.
    Human beings are imperfect and MANY would not be where they are if we let the judgmental in society dictate the terms of who is deserving and who isn't.
