Remember #MeToo? The Democrats don’t. They’ve willfully forgotten it.
The wave of accusations and ruined careers that followed the downfall of Harvey Weinstein in 2017 abruptly ended earlier this year, the minute Tara Reade accused Joe Biden of sexual assault.
Suddenly, all the people who had been scolding us to #BelieveWomen were scolding us to #BelieveWomenExceptHER.
I truly don’t think the Left understands how the relentless drumbeat of sexual scandal looks to Americans outside the progressive bubble.
Left-dominated quarters of American life — Hollywood, the media, progressive politics — have been revealed to be havens for the worst sort of ghouls, and each scandal seems to be accompanied by two words that deepen American cynicism and make legions of conservative Americans roll their eyes at the Left’s moral arguments: “Everyone knew.”

As California’s political leaders scramble to restore trust in a system that many say protects perpetrators of sexual harassment instead of its victims, an explosive news report on Friday revealed that a current legislator — Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra — was secretly disciplined eight years ago after a legislative staffer accused him of groping her.
But the San Fernando Valley Democrat, then chief of staff to then-Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, kept his job and went on to run for office, endorsed by numerous legislators — including the woman’s boss, disgraced former Sen. Ron Calderon...
Staffer Elise Flynn Gyore was at an after-hours work event in 2009 when, she told the Los Angeles Times, Bocanegra — whom she had never met — aggressively reached under her blouse. She said he “menaced” her that night, following her around and making her fear for her safety.
Ms. Kaplan, a prominent progressive lawyer, was involved in an effort to discredit a woman who had accused Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, a report said.
When attorney Roberta Kaplan and former Michelle Obama aide Tina Tchen founded Time's Up in 2018, many assumed its goal was to bolster the #MeToo movement, rather than destroy it.
Few if any pundits believed the female-led group would eventually become the preeminent apologist for prominent Democrats accused of harassing and abusing women.

Time’s up for Time’s Up.
The national group that is supposed to help sexual harassment victims is cleaning house after it was revealed its top officers advised disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo when an ex-staffer accused him of sexual misconduct.
A damning investigative report by state Attorney General Letitia James’ office concluded that Cuomo harassed or mistreated 11 women, including current and former staffers and even a state trooper assigned to his security detail.
Cuomo resigned in August under the threat of impeachment.

A female event organizer told state probers in cringe-worthy detail how then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo allegedly “grabbed my butt” — and her shock at being “assaulted by the governor.’’
The woman was at a Hudson River revitalization event Sept. 14, 2019, when she said Cuomo grabbed her arm “to pull me into the photo,’’ according to explosive transcripts released by the state attorney general’s office last week.
“At the conclusion of the photo he took his hand and double tapped the area where my butt and my thigh meet, so kind of under my butt cheek,” the stunned worker told investigators probing a slew of sexual-harassment allegations against Cuomo.
”It felt like kind of his fingers moved two times upward to kind of, you know, grab that area between my butt and my thigh,” the woman said.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo violated federal and state laws, Attorney General Letitia James said Tuesday, finding he “sexually harassed multiple women” and then retaliated against the victims when they came forward creating a “toxic” atmosphere in the executive chamber.
The blockbuster announcement is the result of a probe that found Cuomo engaged in “unwanted groping, kissing, hugging and making inappropriate comments,” James said.
The probe involved accusations that Cuomo, 63, sexually harassed several current and former female staffers, most of whom are in their 20s or 30s.
The most serious allegation made public to date came from a current aide who says Cuomo reached under her blouse and groped her inside his Executive Mansion office in Albany last year.
Tchen told her colleagues to “stand down” from a plan to release a public statement supporting Boylan, according to text messages.
The texts came after two people in the organization spoke to top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa.

Tina Tchen has resigned from her position as president and CEO of Time's Up, an organization whose mission is to protect women from harassment. It was the latest fallout from charges that Times' Up leaders privately consulted with then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has denied accusations by 11 women that he sexually harassed them...
Over the past few months, sexual abuse survivors have accused Time's Up leaders of betraying them, after New York Attorney General Letitia James reported they had consulted with a top Cuomo aide about how strong a stand Time's Up should take on the allegations.
News reports alleged that Tchen and board chair Roberta Kaplan gave feedback on an unpublished opinion column smearing Cuomo accuser Lindsey Boylan. And The Washington Post published text messages in which Tchen told colleagues to "stand down" from releasing a statement in support of Boylan.

The vast majority of Time’s Up’s remaining staffers were laid off Friday in what they described as a debacle that began with leaders revealing they gave the news to the Washington Post first and ended with board member Ashley Judd breaking down in tears.
The embattled organization, limping since its CEO and entire board resigned this summer, announced Friday that it would lay off the vast majority of its remaining staff...
Multiple outlets reported over the summer that the leaders of Time’s Up—which was created in response to the #MeToo movement—had counseled then-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on how to respond to sexual harassment allegations against him and had disparaged his accuser in text messages.

"A lot of us have been surprised that for a progressive community, how in line [Occupy Boston] is with the mainstream as far as not taking women seriously, tolerating harassment of women, both verbal and physical," said Jender, who was among the walk-outs.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that she believes women who say they felt uncomfortable after receiving unwanted touching from former Vice President Joe Biden.
"I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it," Harris said at a presidential campaign event in Nevada.
The California senator added that Biden will need to decide for himself whether to run for president.

Anita Hill dismissed and rebutted credible allegations of sexual assault against former President Bill Clinton as his administration was subsumed by sex scandals, and urged women to support Clinton despite his alleged predations.
A settlement negotiated on behalf of a woman who accused Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), her former boss, of sexual misconduct is just the latest example: The money came out of Conyers' office budget, meaning it wasn't even included in the $17 million total.
Hollywood-based career strategist Suzannah Galland said she hears many horror stories from friends who are top actresses. These victims don’t name names "out of fear".
