Bill Clinton/ Kamala Harris forum on “Empowering Women” is Hypocrisy, Notes Ruth Inst.

“You’ve got to be kidding,” Ruth Institute President, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., said of Vice President Harris doing a webcast forum on ‘empowering women and girls’ with former President Bill Clinton last week. “Neither Clinton nor Harris are credible promoters of ‘empowering women and girls.’”

Charges of sexual harassment and assault have plagued the former president throughout his career. The current VP lost all credibility on the sexual harassment issue due to her partisan interpretation of this term, pointedly ignoring charges of misconduct by Democrats and blindly accepting such charges against Republicans.

During the 2018 hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, then-Senator Harris said she believedthe woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault decades earlier. “It takes an extraordinary amount of courage” for a woman to testify against a man nominated for “one of the most powerful positions” in the land, Harris explained at the time.

Morse asked, “Does the Vice President believe the many women who have accused Clinton of a variety of sex crimes over the years? Does she believe Juanita Broaddrick, who says Clinton raped her in 1978, or Paula Jones, who says he exposed himself to her when she was an Arkansas state employee?

“How can Harris not cringe at sharing the spotlight with a man who had a sexual relationship with an intern almost 30 years his junior and then lied about it under oath?”

Morse added: “The week after the Harris-Clinton forum, a 10th woman has come forward to accuse New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual improprieties. Harris has steadfastly refused to comment on this embattled governor in her own party. In this case, silence is not golden.

“Perhaps her own extra-marital relationship with then California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown has colored her views,” Morse speculated. Harris got her start in California politics with a $70,000-a-year patronage job ($120,000 in today’s money) from her then boyfriend.

“What all these ‘pro-women’ politicians have in common is that they are pro-abortion,” Morse charged. “According to Sexual Revolutionaries, ‘empowering women’ means delivering women into the hands of powerful men, without those men ever having to worry about the responsibilities of fatherhood.

“How ironic,” Morse declared. “People of faith who advocate for lifelong married love are supposedly out of touch, old-fashioned and anti-woman. Men and women who have lived a lifetime of fidelity to their spouses are told to admire and emulate people like Kamala Harris and Bill Clinton. The hypocrisy of the Sexual Revolutionaries is stunning.”
