Whatever folks want to call it, to me a 30 year old dude trying to "date" 13 - 16 year olds is a skezzy serial statutory rapist... At the least. And shouldnt be considered fit to run for office.
The public gets sucked into an absurd debate about which politician has the worst unproven allegations. There is no statute of limitations on dirt and mud.

What should we conclude about Conyers' alleged Chandra Levy statement 16 years ago to the intern? Levy's remains were eventually found in Rock Creek Park many months after she went missing. The primary suspect in the murder was, coincidentally, an illegal alien who was implicated in other attacks. Congressman Condit was brought down because of his relationship with Levy. Now, Conyers is gone.
I agree. That is why I never advocated for Conyers to be shown the door. If he chooses to leave on his own, that is his decision. But just like Moore, I don't believe he should be forced out unless he is proven guilty of the accusations.

In accordance with society norms of today, I would agree. However, back when this is alleged to have occurred, it was common practice. I was speaking with my nieces husband yesterday about his family. His grandfather began dating his grandmother when he was in his twenties and she was only 14. They married when she was 16. The stated that in that day and age, that was not uncommon.

This is the point I tried to make in another thread. We want to judge the actions of people in the past based upon the societal and social norms of today. If we are being honest with ourselves, we need only look in our own past or in our own families and we would most likely find these same things occurred with the ones we grew up looking up too.

Conyers makes a sexual advance against an intern.

Intern rejects Conyers.

Upon being rebuffed, Conyers references a murdered intern.

Libs ignore the above and try to distract by bringing up a Republican.

Did I miss anything?

What evidence? All I have seen is he said, she said. That is not evidence. That is hearsay.

Maybe. The accusation might not be accurate.
