House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday urged "due process" before making conclusions about Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., following accusations of sexual harassment, saying the 27-term Congressman is "an icon" who has worked to protect women.
"We are strengthened by due process. Just because someone is accused - and was it one accusation? Is it two?" Pelosi said on "Meet The Press."
"John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women - Violence Against Women Act, which the left - right-wing - is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that," she added. "But the fact is, as John reviews his case, which he knows, which I don't, I believe he will do the right thing."
What's bad is, it was supposed to be directional.
It was supposed to seek and destroy Conservative politicians, Conservative cultural icons, Conservative businessmen. But the Lefties have been a protected species forever. They've been getting a free pass since John F. Kennedy had his very own staff of sex-kittens on the public payroll in the White House. (He did. Look it up, Lefties.) They've been grabbing asses and stealing kisses forever, raping and destroying women at will, and EVERYBODY KNEW that if a woman pointed a finger at one of them, she was done like a Christmas turkey. Stick a fork in her.
