Any time there’s even the slightest glimmer of impropriety – truthful or not – when a Republican is charged it isn’t so much the VALIDITY of the charge, but the SERIOUSNESS of the charge. Every time they step down to “save face” or “protect the party.” Instead they weaken it every time a strong, positive leader gets thrown under the bus due to some cockamamy allegation.
Republicans should do what the Democrats do! Stick around regardless! It isn’t a double standard if nobody is held accountable!
