Over at Vox, Pelosi is being called out as the ultimate enabler of sexual harassers and abusers. “That woman.” She’ll also being held accountable as part of the reason why women don’t come forward more often when they are victims of sexual misconduct.
“Conyers is the credible one. He is an “icon,” she told Todd. The woman? “I do not know who they are. Do you?” she asked the host. “They have not really come forward.” (The woman came forward three years ago, dogging her case through an opaque process in Congress that bars her from speaking about it. She spoke to BuzzFeed anonymously.)”
