Just the other day, Nancy Pelosi’s comments defending John Conyers raised many an eyebrow. Much like Nancy’s face-lifted brows, permanently frozen in surprise. Sometime, within the 24-hours after she stuck her turkey neck out for Conyers, Nance had a complete change of heart.
Now, it’s back to “believe the victim.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came forward to say she now believes a sexual harassment accuser of a fellow Democratic congressman Monday night.
Pelosi seemed to have changed her tune on a sexual harassment accusation against Democratic Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, saying she believed Melanie Sloan’s account of “distressing experiences” while working for the congressman.
“This afternoon, I spoke with Melanie Sloan who worked for Congressman Conyers on the Judiciary Committee in the mid-1990s,” Pelosi said in the statement. “Ms. Sloan told me that she had publicly discussed distressing experiences while on his staff. I find the behavior Ms. Sloan described unacceptable and disappointing. I believe what Ms. Sloan has told me.”
What a difference 24 hours and a near-universal backlash makes.
The truth is Nancy put her bunioned foot in her mouth when she sang the praises of an alleged pervert. Now, she’s setting out to do some damage control. Hence, the flip-flop. Conyers was an “icon” just yesterday. Now he’s to be avoided like HIV-positive leper cat-person who likes The Big Bang Theory. Judgement day.
At the same time they were defending Conyers, leftists were calling for Roy Moore’s craggy dome on a pike. Which makes them look like giant hypocrites. So, they have no choice but to give Conyers’ liver-spotted posterior the boot. Peer pressure has its perks.
Nancy wasn’t wrong the first time when she asked for due process for Conyers. Even the worst offenders deserve their day in court. But, if she has to give due process to Johnny-boy, she has to give it to Roy Moore. No matter how guilty he looks. Much easier to flip-flop, I suppose.
