During Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court, allegations were made that he had sexually harassed Anita Hill. The allegations were unfounded and eventually proven false. When Bill Clinton was accused of having an affair with a White House intern, he said,I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. Days later he admitted he had indeed had sexual relations with her.

It is not about the truth of the allegations, it is aboutthe seriousness of the charge
I agree except we must put it in terms that public educated folks can understand. And we need to put the truth in their own media even if we have to pay to do so (as advertising).
Michael Steele you listening? Here lies an opportunity for massive fund raising.
The biggest reason Dhimmi degenerates get away with it is that the corrupt and immoral press ignores or downplays Dhimmi corruption and crimes but piles on any hint of Republican potential corruption or appearance of impropiety. It’s the vast-left-wing echo chamber doing its job.
Unfortunately, I don't think he is up to the task.
