Democratic Senator Doug Jones criticized Tara Reade – who has accused presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of sexual assault: “The more that comes out, the more and more it, to me, does not have the indicia of credibility.”
But when the shoe was on the other foot, Jones took the opposite approach. Explaining why he would vote no on the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Jones said: “I am concerned about the message our vote will be sending to our sons and daughters, as well as victims of sexual assault.”
So when a Democrat is accused of sexual assault, Jones believes the accused, but when a Republican-nominated judge is accused of sexual assault, Jones says we must believe the alleged victim?
How can Jones explain his transparently partisan motivation for applying two different standards?
