I gather she is a member of "that utterly discredited group of hard left lesbians" simply by virtue of the fact that she works as an administrator on a college campus, or do you have any actual quotes where she specifically defended Clinton. My quick google on the topic turned up nothing, but I confess it was just a quickie.

On the basis of a statement she made about the Hnida case, she has been branded a hypocrite, because (as far I can tell), OK, I'm having trouble coming up with the "because".

So, apparently, in order to be credible, a female college administrator, when talking about sexual assault on campus, must also include the words "and I was also appalled by the allegations of rape made against Bill Clinton", or at the very least, one must be able to google quotes from the past in which she has made this comment. Silence on the topic, or lack of attributable quotes is not enough.

OK.

From the article:

Regina Cowles, president of the National Organization for Women's Boulder chapter, said she thinks CU should have fired both Barnett and athletic director Dick Tharp on Wednesday.

"It's just outrageous because I just don't know what it's going to take to get CU, the administration's attention on this. They say the words that they're taking this seriously, and I believe that they want to, but I wonder if they know how to," she said.

My comment was not about the president of the college, it was about the person quoted above, Regina Cowles.

I used to believe NOW had some credibility. After their selling out women because they liked Bill's leftist policies, they have none.

Wasn't it obvious he was talking about the NOW woman?

You may think it irrelevant that NOW chooses to defend some women victims and not others. I and other commonsense types here see the obvious political opportunism NOW engages in.

All of that is beside the point of the veracity of the claims in these situations. NOW obviously decides who is credible based on certain criteria. If one is victimized by a dem politicican they could care less what happens to the woman.

That's the point and an indisputable fact.
