Episode #361: Sexual Harassment, As Seen By The Two Parties

We all agree that sexual harassment is bad, regardless of who is the accused.  The allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, look bad.  The allegations against North Carolina congressman Madison Cawthorn, a Republican, look bad.  We have reports on the two by Chris Churchill, a political columnist at the Albany Times-Union, and Tom Fiedler, a journalist from Asheville, N.C.  Neither politician comes out looking especially good.  But a sidebar to these stories is that such allegations leveled against a Democrat will result in far more severe punishment by his own party than they would if the allegations were made against a Republican.  Some Dems are calling for Cuomo’s resignation; Cawthorn is continually heralded as a rising star.  In addition to the two situations, we ponder why the two parties see it differently.

We also have a report on the goings on last weekend at CPAC by Tim Denevi, who retells some of the craziness at the event, sizes up potential 2024 presidential hopefuls and, most significantly, assesses Donald Trump’s first major appearance since he left the White House.
