Gov. of Michigan ‘Really Resents’ Survivors Being Asked To Weigh In On Every Accusation

Article here. Excerpt:

'Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Sunday that she believes former Vice President Joe Biden over his accuser, former Senate aide Tara Reade.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper questioned Whitmer on “State of the Union” about her support for Biden over Reade, who has accused the former vice president of sexual assault, noting that she had been among those voicing support for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford over the man she accused of similar behavior: Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“You’ve said that you believe Vice President Biden. I want to compare that to 2018 when you said you believed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford after she accused now Justice Brett Kavanaugh of assault. Kavanaugh also, like Biden, categorically denied that accusation and Blasey Ford, to be honest, she did not have the contemporaneous accounts of her view of what happened that Tara Reade does,” Tapper explained. “You have spoken movingly about how you’re a survivor of assault yourself. Why do you believe Biden and not Kavanaugh? Are they not both entitled to the same presumption of innocence regardless of their political views?”

“Jake, as a survivor, and as a feminist, I’ll say this. We need to give people an opportunity to tell their story. Then we have a duty to vet it. And just because you’re a survivor doesn’t mean that every claim is equal,” Whitmer replied, going on to say that she felt that she had read enough about the allegations against Biden to make an informed decision on the facts.'

You mean we need to go back to the standards we've developed over centuries when treating accusations of a criminal nature? Yes, we take them seriously, but we also vet them because we've discovered some people--even, gasp, women--lie.

So the approach advocated by MRAs is the correct approach after all?

My oh my.
