Remember those 88 women who signed a letter bashing all male eating clubs? Or that time Hudson County Democratic Organization Chairwoman Amy DeGise claimed Bob Menendez’s record has always defended women?
All of these women, in their hypocritical support of Bob Menendez, claimed to have issues with sexual misconduct toward women. Every single one of these women chose to ignore the fact Menendez’s own lawyers conceded the fact that Menendez worked to secure visas for young women to come into the country to visit with his pal Salomon Melgen.
Of course my friends on the left side of the aisle will argue Menendez never laid a finger on these women so he did nothing wrong, and that argument would be a bunch of BS. No matter what way you look at it, when a man 30 years older, maybe 40 years older, than young women plays sugar daddy to those young women there is something inappropriate going on. By helping get those women into the country, Menendez, at the very least, provided the conditions for Melgen to act in a manner that was sexually inappropriate.
Fast forward to the recent news of the sudden resignation of Governor Phil Murphy’s staffer Albert Alvarez, a guy who allegedly committed a sexual assault, rape to be specific, of a campaign volunteer in April 2017. I refuse to type the woman’s name in this post because I don’t think it’s fair to continue plastering her name all over the internet. Alvarez was able to stay in his $140,000 job after it was known there was an investigation into the alleged sexual assault.
Republicans have been calling for investigations into this matter. Those 88 women who signed a letter bashing all male eating clubs? Not a peep! Where are they? Where is Hudson County Democratic Organization Chairwoman Amy DeGise? Maybe they are all busy getting ready to spend between $500 - $5,400 to see Hillary Clinton suck up to Bob Menendez tonight.
It does make sense that Clinton would come to New Jersey to stump for Menendez. Clinton did just say, her husband, President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky wasn’t an abuse of power because she was a 22-year-old adult. To me, that statement means Mrs. Clinton thinks that Bob Menendez helping bring young women into the country for Salomon Melgen to play sugar daddy is perfectly acceptable.
It’s time for all these women “leaders” to step up and stop being hypocrites. If Phil Murphy, Bob Menendez or Albert Alvarez were Republicans they would all be making a lot of noise over Alvarez’s alleged sexually inappropriate behavior and Murphy and Menendez providing the conditions for men to engage in sexually inappropriate behavior. They would be angry over Hillary Clinton’s statement regarding Monica Lewinsky.
The actions, or lack of action, from these women “leaders” gives the appearance they only care about sexually inappropriate behavior when the actor is a Republican. It’s a disgusting double standard that causes me to ask, is accepting sexually inappropriate behavior the new normal for New Jersey’s Democrats?
The only question left is how many of these women “leaders” will be there to see Hillary Clinton this evening?
