As well all know, the liberal media is nothing if not biased. They love to put down Republican politicians and activists the second they are caught doing something even potentially damning, and yet they are eager to hide and protect their own people (the Democrats) when they come under fire for scandals. The following are five scandals that were either done or controlled by liberals that definitely would have sunk any GOP candidate. The best part is, these scandals were just minor blips on the radar for these Democrat politicians
Perjury, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault
Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States, and wannabee First Man of the United States, has a history of dirty laundry trailing back decades.
While serving as President (From 1993 to 2001), a sexual harassment lawsuit was brought against Clinton by Paula Jones, who claimed that in 1991, Bill Clinton propositioned and exposed himself to her. The case was eventually settled out of court, after several appeals, with Clinton paying Jones a sum of $850,000.
During his deposition in Paula Jones’ lawsuit, Clinton denied having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky, a former White House Intern. This, which later proved to be a lie, led to the charges of impeachment for perjury, since Clinton made this sworn testimony in a court of law, while serving as President.
While those two are his most famous scandals, those are not the only times Mr. Clinton has been accused of sexual impropriety with people who were not his wife.
In 1992, Gennifer Flowers, a model and actress, claimed she had a sexual relationship with Clinton. While Clinton originally denied this, he later admitted that he had had a sexual encounter with Flowers.
In 1998, Kathleen Willey accused Clinton of sexual harassment.
Also in 1998, a woman named Juanita Broaddrick accused Clinton of raping her.
Again, in 1998, Elizabeth Ward Gracen admitted to having a one night stand with Bill Clinton.
The liberal media also does not seem to recall that Clinton was a guest on Jeffrey Epstein’s airliner that was used for underage prostitution more than 10 times.
Bill Clinton is still regularly featured on television and radio shows, and paid very well to give speeches as universities across the country.
Ironically enough, Bill Clinton was named “Father of the Year” by the National Father’s Day Council in 2013.
I think the fathers of those poor women he abused and had extra-marital affairs with would disagree.
Leaving the Scene of an Accident (that resulted in death)
In the summer of 1969, Ted Kennedy left a party on Chappaquiddick Island with Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy later claimed that he was driving Kopechne back to the ferry so she could go home. Her purse and keys had been left at the party.
The next morning, Ted Kennedy woke up, and Mary Jo was dead. That night, while driving home, Kennedy drove his car off of the Dike Bridge.
Then, Kennedy left the scene, returning to his home.
Mary Jo Kopechne was left for dead, and her body was recovered several hours later.
The next morning, Kennedy called the police to report the accident, but her body had already been discovered.
Kennedy was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and sentenced to two months of a suspended sentence, meaning he never spent time in jail.
At the time, Kennedy has already been in Congress for 7 years, and would continue to serve as a Senator for forty more years. Also at the time, Kennedy has been married to his wife Joan for five year.
If a Republican politician was even in a car accident with a woman who was not his wife, his career would be over. I can only imagine that outrage, and criminal sentence, that would befall him if that car accident led to her death.
It’s a good thing Ted had the last name he did though, or he’d likely have rotted in prison for years to come, instead of in the Senate.
Hiring a Prostitute
In 1971, Springer was elected to the Cincinnati City Council, as a democrat.
In 1974, he resigned after admitting to hiring a prostitute.
In 1977, he served a year as mayor of Cincinnati, indicating his career was clearly not over.
Since 1991, Springer has hosted The Jerry Springer Show, which is known for its outrageous language, provocativeness, and exploitation of its guests. To begin every show, Springer slides in on a stripper pole.
In 2008, Springer delivered the Northwestern University School of Law commencement speech, which I’m sure he was paid handsomely for.
Springer was also a celebrity dancer on Dancing with the Stars
In the summer of 2012, President Obama met with this distinguished provocateur, who later called him “truly exceptional,” which I think, considering who is saying that, speaks for himself.
Clearly, hiring a prostitute did not hurt Springer’s career. I would even argue it advanced it. This small-town city councilman jumped to national stardom with his crime, and the liberal media continues to laud him for his acting and career, despite the check he wrote to that prostitute.
