Hey, Republicans, guess what happens when you don't fight back?

Roy Moore, Minnesota legislator Jim Knoblach, Brett Kavanaugh, Washington state Senator Joe Fain.

Hey, maybe Joe Fain should hire Rachel Mitchell?

LOL - She did a terrific job for Brett Kavanaugh!

Democrat. The rule of thumb; when a Rat is accused of something, party affiliation is omitted.

If its a Republican, they alert readers to it.

I have 7 witness who will testify that it was Algore during that infamous Seattle trip in a Joe Fain mask.
He was going after his 2nd (3rd?) shakra

Read the story... if the story isn't garbled up she's a whack job. He invites an investigation. NOtice the timing of the accusation [before she named a name]:

Faber, 35, in June published an online essay accusing an unnamed Washington state lawmaker of assaulting her. She wrote that they met "at the Capitol," spent the night dancing and kissing, and that both "drank too much."
She wrote in the essay she walked the man back to his hotel, went to his room and that he pinned her to a bed and pulled down her dress. She wrote that she told him to stop and put her foot on his head to push him away. After the man raped her, she wrote, she asked him for a kiss goodbye before leaving the room.
In her essay, she rejected that the kiss request was "not how girls act when they've been raped." She wrote that she later called a friend, wondering if she should go to a hospital.

Nuttier than a hollow oak in November

This is the 21st Century.

Rule #1. If you are not a Democrat, you need a signed consent form.

So predictable. Republicans raped Democrats. Of course! And right on cue to support the Judge Kavanaugh character assassination. If any woman can accuse any non-Democrat man of rape at any time, even 35 years after the supposed event, this country is over. Why even work with a woman? Why be friends with one? Thank God I’m married and live in the Old South, where people still have sense.

The next step will be lefties who concoct “many years ago” fake rape stories corroborated by one or more friends.

Of course, no police reports will have ever been filed...

“I was coerced into signing the form. It was super creepy and I only signed it because I was really scared of what he would do if I didn’t sign it. And, after that, he raped me. *sniff*”

Mental Health PTSD in state dept noncombatants... can't help but suspect this is going to be a new trough for ambulance chasers and mental health quacks.

Candace Faber joined the Foreign Service when she was twenty-four. She learned Dari, Polish, and Russian. At twenty-eight, she was off to Afghanistan where she spent a year at a “a tiny, crowded, dysfunctional world—one we could not leave.” She wrote that she “often fantasized about walking off compound, just like Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl did in Paktika. In my imagination, even the Taliban seemed kinder than my colleagues.”

She was thirty years old when she resigned from the the FS. Via Candace Faber on Medium – The Other Veterans:

[S]eeing them take this woman’s very real suffering so lightly, dismissing both her service and her fears as a woman, did more than hurt. It invalidated my own experience. If a military veteran on a PRT had no right to struggle with readjustment, then by comparison, my year at the U.S. embassy compound in Kabul was a joke. My closest brush with terrorism was a distribution of children’s books I attended in Logar Province, pulling schoolchildren, government officials, and journalists together in a single building. The next day, that building was attacked by a vehicle-borne IED, and two of my colleagues were injured. I was shaken, but I wasn’t there. I also wasn’t there during the September 10 attacks, a fact that only seemed to invalidate my experience further. In my mind and that of my colleagues, neither that woman nor I had the right to struggle with our transition. There was no excuse save PTSD, and I didn’t have that. I couldn’t have it. I wasn’t a veteran. […] It has been a hard journey, as everyone close to me can attest. Resignation has also had financial consequences. But money matters very little compared to having my mental health back. As of today, I have not had an anxiety attack in months. I credit psychotherapy for my recovery. The only question in my mind is why it took so long for me to get help—and why no one in the Department of State, not even when I announced my intention to resign, suggested the option. Instead, I suffered alone for a year and a half, convinced that I was simply a broken person who could never be put back together again. All of that could have been avoided....

A little creepy looking for guy but he is from Washington state ...
On the other hand, asking your “rapist” to kiss you after he’s through is crazy. Sounds more like she wasn’t satisfied or maybe took offense at a one night stand after giving in, maybe she gave in expecting he’d later produce a ring.

Every male Republican is a rapist to Democrats. No moderate or Conservative will take these accusations seriously. Democrats are hurting rape victims, because people will far less likely to believe them due to these frivolous accusations against Conservative Republicans.
