Ferguson state rep leaves black caucus after her alleged rapist is elected caucus chairman
St Louis Post Disgrace ^ | 11/10/18 | Jack Suntrup

Members of Missouri's legislative black caucus on Thursday elected state Rep. Steven Roberts, D-St. Louis, to chair the group — but Roberts' ascension drew criticism from one of his colleagues who two years ago accused Roberts of raping her.

Rep. Cora Faith Walker, D-Ferguson, announced Thursday on Facebook that she was leaving the caucus.

"I have resigned from the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus," Walker wrote. "I stand in my truth and am incredibly grateful to my colleagues who stand with survivors."

All these sex related problems boggle the mind.

Its in sports, religion, the media and so on.

In politics the Democrats seem to us it against Republicans and Trump with impunity.

I think it was the Education Secretary Betsy DeVos who said you have to listen to all sides when the allegations surface.

Well I guess we get to listen to what this woman has to say and its stunning.

Maybe he could some day be on the SOCTUS.

After all he’s got a D after his name.

"I stand in my truth ..."

If she stands in THE truth, I'm all for it. This 'My Truth' stuff means basically "well maybe a guy kissed me in my bathing suit and his friend jumped on him and I left, but it doesn't really matter who it was or even if maybe it's not that clear that it was against my will, because white men have been doing this forever and that's MY TRUTH so it's OK TO LIE because it serves the higher purpose of my sisters and he WOULD HAVE RAPED me had he had the chance, men have been raping us literally and figuratively since the beginning of time and they all must pay."

This "My Truth" crap ... time for it not to be paid any attention to. THE truth ... I'm all for it, there's only one of them and it's defined as 'what happened in the physical universe' rather than some metaphor made real by someone's real or fake victim role and stream of consciousness.

Exactly “My truth” sounds like a very mealy mouthed way of saying nuttin much happened. It’s political speech for “my lie”

Just another reminder that being a rapist is actually considered a positive character trait for DemocRAT politicians... That party LOVES its sexual deviants, pedophiles, and rapists...
