Gauthier’s fellow Democrats are trying to show him the door; one of them referred to him publicly as a “child molester,” while Governor Mark Dayton said, “I believe he is unfit to serve beyond this term.” The Minneapolis Star Tribune, however, reports that Gauthier says he will run for re-election in November
Is there any possibility he could win in November? One wouldn’t think so, but his Duluth district is heavily Democratic. His campaign will reveal, perhaps, whether Democrats have any standards whatsoever.
John Hinderaker, author of the cited article, should know better.
The party that called a man who drove a woman into a pond and left her to drown "The Lion of the Senate"?
The party that has as its convention keynote speaker this year an impeached, disbarred ex-president who admitted to molesting an intern in the White House and who was accused of rape or molestation by at least three different women?
The party that sent a man to 16 terms in Congress despite the fact that a gay house of prostitution was being run out of his residence?
The party that let a Congressman stay in office even though he admitted to having a sexual relationship with a male, 17 year-old Congressional page?
Somehow I doubt it.
No, all of the media outrage must be reserved for a doofus who said something idiotic, not Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Barney Frank or Gerry Studds, to name but a few.
