RUSH: You know, these political sex scandals, they’re fascinating, folks. When the Democrats have one, you need to produce semen, you need the blue dress, you need transcripts of sexting, you need photos of people sneaking into hotel rooms like John Edwards. But when the 40-year-old childhood memories of a wacky woman and the Washington Post allege something about a Republican, all hell breaks loose.

Doug Lewis #MAGA @umpire43 A family friend who lives in Alabama just told my wife that a WAPO reporter named Beth offered her $1000 to accuse Roy Moore. 4:35 PM - Nov 9, 2017
Doug Lewis #MAGA @umpire43 She has a pic of the woman named Beth and taped the conversation on her phone.I told her to take it to the DA,s office but be sure to keep a copy. https://twitter.com/umpire4...
4:38 PM - Nov 9, 2017 They went to the local DA instead of the FBI because EVERYONE today knows the FBI and DOJ has been compromised and cannot be trusted.
Doug Lewis #MAGA @umpire43 Done Bradd. FBI has been notified but Jean does not trust them so she is dealing directly with her Co DA. Cant blame her with FBI in stories every day https://twitter.com/WilburT...
As a Jewess on the US, I can only point out that the number of women who allegedly DATED, but had no sex with, Roy Moore is EXACTLY the same number who accused President Clinton of FORCIBLE RAPE, a FAR more serious offense. Now we know why all REAL Americans put our 2nd Amendment FIRST. Just sayin!
There are just an awful lot of things that McCain has done, in which “He’s gotta quit!” would have been the first choice of actions that McCain should have undertaken.
But would McCain follow that advice, applied to HIM? NOOOO - that would be “giving up” and McCain would just double down on his bad behavior, very little of which he has EVER apologized for or even walked back. McCain is a “war hero”, and is afforded great latitude in his indiscretions.
The first major one was something called “the Keating Five”, in which a consortium of five US Senators were improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association. Besides McCain, Alan Cranston (D-CA), Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ), John Glenn (D-OH), and Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (D-MI). Only Glenn and McCain ran for re-election, and they both retained their seats.
Keating had made contributions of about $1.3 million to various U.S. Senators, and he called on those Senators to help him resist regulators. Regardless, Lincoln was seized by the FHLBB on April 14, 1989, and some 23,000 customers were left with worthless bonds. The federal government was eventually liable for $3.4 billion to cover Lincoln’s losses when it seized the institution. In talking to reporters in April, Keating said, “One question, among many raised in recent weeks, had to do with whether my financial support in any way influenced several political figures to take up my cause. I want to say in the most forceful way I can: I certainly hope so.”
The corruption came early on to John McCain, and continued throughout most of his career in the Senate. A major juncture was John McCain’s association with lobbyist Vicky Iseman, who was a partner at the firm Alcalde & Fay, represented telecommunications companies for whom Mr. McCain’s commerce committee was pivotal. Her clients contributed tens of thousands of dollars to his campaigns. In February 1999, Mr. McCain and Ms. Iseman attended a small fund-raising dinner with several clients at the Miami-area home of a cruise-line executive and then flew back to Washington along with a campaign aide on the corporate jet of one of her clients, Paxson Communications.
Iseman began visiting McCain’s offices and campaign events so frequently in 2000 that his aides were “convinced the relationship had become romantic”. One staff member supposedly asked, “Why is she always around?”
Strategist John Weaver and McCain’s Chief of staff, Mark Salter were both part of the intervention. Weaver met with Iseman at Union Station to tell Iseman not to see McCain anymore. Weaver, who arranged the meeting after a discussion among campaign leaders, said Iseman and he discussed “her conduct and what she allegedly had told people, which made its way back to us.” Weaver heard that she was saying “she had strong ties to the Commerce Committee and his staff” and told her this was wrong and for it to stop. It was never entirely clear if the connection developed into a liaison, but there have been some deep ties that were clearly unethical. McCain remains a better preacher about ethics, standards, appearances, and special interest conflicts than he is a practitioner.
In 2002, after a six-year crusade by McCain and Democratic Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, Congress passed and President Bush signed the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA), which prohibited parties from accepting unlimited contributions and limited the activity that could be described as issue advocacy. This turned out to be much more observed in the breach than in the fulfillment of its original purposes, creating huge “advocacy groups”, which could then spend almost limitless funds, from practically ANY source, on any specific issue, so long as they did not “conspire” with a particular political party or candidate.
Several times, McCain was mentioned prominently as a Vice-Presidential candidate, but after losing a bruising campaign for the Presidential nomination to George W. Bush, a long-lasting feud grew up, fueled in large part from McCain’s side. In fact, so great were the differences, that in the 2004 U.S. presidential election campaign, McCain was once again frequently mentioned for the vice-presidential slot, only this time as part of the Democratic ticket under nominee John Kerry. This never came to fruition, not even a direct conversation between Kerry and McCain.
So much for intellectual and moral purity, not to say political integrity.
Wasn’t she disbarred?
Never Trumpers and drive by media radio talk hosts are having a field day ignoring the fact that all of the accusers were of the age of legal consent. Including the one claiming when 14 years old. For her accusations are the juiciest. Which they gleefully relate and dwell on in a touchy feel-ly manner as if it came off of a police report yesterday. Not as a unsubstantiated recollection from 40 years ago. Because they know these are damaging accusations which will be almost impossible to disprove.
Here is background on two accusers. One works for the perverts that one knows the one who claimed she was 14.But was actually 17 at the time ?. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3603606/posts
Part of what took down Keating’s Lincoln S&L was financing the construction of Keating’s resort in Scottsdale, The Phoenician. It all got wrapped into the Resolution Trust Corp. package to pay off the subcontractors on that project. My in-laws’ company was part of that and it very nearly took that company down. I was the on-site project manager for the company on the Phoenician project so I saw it all up close, including sleazy Charlie Keating. I have no use for politicians like McCain who enable such sleaze.
