Another case of Democrats being hypocrites comes from Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) this time who is quick to condemn Sen. Al Franken last week but 24 years ago took the exact opposite approach when it came to Democratic senator Edward (Ted) Kennedy, reports The Washington Times.

Reports of drunken debauchery threatened to destroy Kennedy’s run for re-election in 1992, but Murray and four other Democratic women senators came to his rescue to save his campaign.

During what has been widely hailed as the “Year of the Woman” in 1992 when four Democratic women serving in the Senate came to Kennedy’s aid a Boston fundraiser.  Sens. Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara A. Mikulski, and Carol Moseley Braun all came to defend Kennedy against the allegations.

“‘We’re going to be here for Ted because Ted has always been there for us,’ Ms. Mikulski was quoted as saying in the Nov. 17, 1993, edition of the Lowell [Massachusetts] Sun.”

These four women helped save Kennedy’s 1994 race against Republican Mitt Romney in Massachusetts.  This defense then set a precedent under which Democratic women are willing to suspend their outrage over sexual harassment allegations in order to further a powerful pro-choice Democratic man.

As long as the man who is being accused of sexual misconduct is a Democrat, then Democratic women senators have no problem with defending them till the ends of the earth.

The second case of this happening came in 1999 when Democratic women helped President Clinton fight articles of impeachment stemming from a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Arkansas employee Paula Jones.

Out of those four women, only two still remain in Congress today; Feinstein and Murray. Both women have come out to publicly shame Franken on twitter.

Feinstein predicted on Saturday that “we are going to have another Year of the Woman,” thanks to the rash of sexual harassment accusations surrounding politics and the entertainment industry.

If a “year of the woman” looks like a bunch of women turning on other women to defend Democratic senators, then yes perhaps these female senators will replicate their actions with what they did with Ted Kennedy.

    Liberals and Leftists and Communists are godless. They will twist facts to make themselves into pretzels to defend any kind of behavior they approve of. In other words, there is no moral compass and no integrity or ethics or anything decent or good in any of them. Folks can not and must not believe what they say.

      They follow the Saul Alinsky RULES. Lie, Lie, Lie, Twist, Twist, Twist. They sell their souls for POWER, AND CONTROL. These are the SWAMP, CESSPOOL DWELLERS, and they are starting to feed on themselves. Their hypocrisy is their personal seal. God Bless President Trump.

      Ann Coulter wrote a book about liberals and Demoncrats called “Godless.” Which I highly recommend. She also talked about the “Cult of Liberalism” in which liberals worship their politicians and the State instead of God.

  • Those Four two face women are of course walking contradictions! The remaining two should resign for being incompetent!

  • bflat879

    Democrats are really good at this. Be sure to watch all of this carefully. Sure, they came out to attack Franken, but that was for show, watch what they actually do, now that they’re on the record for condemning him.

  • regulus30

    Do you think we are seeing a trend here?

  • Bigmanuger

    Why would the democrate,liberal,progressive women let honesty,integrity and truth get in the way of their communist agenda? They ont care about these things as long as the corrupt machine keeps running smooth.

  • Joseph Stonelake

    Democrats really need to wise up and stop playing games with the American Voters, My goodness they lie as well as change their minds faster then the silver tongued DEVIL ! They should DISMANTLE and then ask for FORGIVENESS from all Americans including the people they have DECEIVED over the past 55 years since President Kennedy said ask not what your country can do for you, man they squander that PHRASE ! IDIOTS !! They are LAIRS, CORRUPTIBLE, SELFISH, SPOILED IDIOTS !

    Are THEY…Liberal…Or…Marxist?

    Marxists… Communists… Socialists… Democrats… It Does NOT matter What You Call Them… THEY… At The TOP of the Elite Strata of the aforementioned Political Systems… Are STILL “Greedy Capitalists”…

    WHY??? Because they Only want YOU and US to be the ones to suffer under their asinine, anti-human rule of Government and Law!!!!

    THEY… Will NEVER lose their Money or Material Goods for the sake of others!!!! Look at ALL The Dictators and the Top Elites selling their Souls to the Dictator of Marxist or Socialist Governments of the Past AND Present… They ALL Have the Best Homes… Cars… Protection… Food… Education for their Children… and Most of All… POWER!!!! While Their People… Whom are “Subjects” … Not Free People to live their life as they want… Have ONLY what they NEED to just get by with life… But Not Pleasure, Good Food or Material Comfort!!!!

    This Is All True Until… The Marxists Start Eating Their Own Because of Self Preservation of Their Criminal Slave Government. If They Suspect of Any of Their Own Getting in the Way or Might Perhaps Turn On Them… Then… THEY Will Eat and Sacrifice Their Own Kind To Preserve Their Evil Marxist Way of Life… Stalin and MAO Purged Millions… Including Thousands of Their Own Hierarchy Elite Evil Kind!!!! Understand… THEIR Agenda To Destroy America… Means Much More Than Their Own Kind!!!!

      Which brings into question how many female congressional members that may have sexually abused their. male Pages like the rampant happening between female teachers and male students in which never go to prison like male teachers do but unlike teachers senators and congress women can ruin any male pages career in politics and at their university
      So the investigation should be both males and female

    Unmentioned in the mainstream media’s usual ululations over Ted Kennedy was what Wikipedia delicately calls the “Chappaquiddick incident.” After leaving a party with Miss Mary Jo Kopechne, a dedicated worker who served during Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 campaign, Kennedy drove off a bridge and escaped the doomed car, leaving Kopechne behind to die. July 18,1969.

    Democrats are morally unconscionable , pragmatic opportunists who will say or do anything, disparage anyone WITHOUT MERIT and protect perverts and pedophiles as long as those individuals are powerful democrats who can and do turn the country evermore degenerate. They have no decency. It is like an opinion dissenting, if it is not in their view what they need, they oppose or smear any credibility the view has whether justified or not! They are joined in this by other privileged parasites referred to as RINOS and all of these are utterly DETRIMENTAL to freedoms, choices and the future of our children.If ever in our history a Swamp needs cleaning and fumigation DESPERATELY, that time is NOW! Remember that in every election, Remember to vote FOR Common Sense, Moral Conscience, and integrity as well as those you think will be Responsible and accountable. Those qualities are rarely found in Congress today and for that: WE HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT OURSELVES. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! Change WILL come eventually but the question is: will it be by ballot or bullet. Think also of THAT, when you exercise the franchise so many have DIED to provide, FOR YOU!

  • Pat Sugrue

    It’s good to be a Democrat… rules don’t apply to them, laws don’t apply to them, their supporters antifa, occupy wall street, BLM and others don’t need permits and as the brilliant mayor of MD stated in one situation the police need to give the protesters room to loot & burn. Then after saying it on the news she said later she didn’t say that. But too late honey. We good Americans can not sit on our backsides we must be out there every day and get involved, and try to educate others and get them involved. We got Trump elected, but as we all see the fight has just begun. He / we good Americans are attacked almost daily by the liberals and liberal media. Stay strong, please don’t give up and God Bless You and God Bless America

  • olegunny

    The fact he is a US Senator bespeaks the great problems our country is facing. I recall her support of Ted Kennedy on a matter more serious than harassment – Murderer. So she will say or do anything to keep a left wing loon in power.
