Allegations, Resignations, and Controversies Regarding Sexual Assault

The continuous stream of sexual assault allegations against male public figures has shocked the nation. In addition to birthing the #MeToo movement, Americans everywhere are discussing sexual assault. In past weeks, Speaker Ryan announced his moves to implement training designed to discourage Congressional leaders from committing sexual assault.

America has furthermore attempted to pinpoint the root of sexual assault. Inherent power imbalances in the workplaces was cited as a theory. However, the plethora of allegations have come under scrutiny also. Many people have speculated that some accusations of sexual misconduct can and are being employed as political weapons.

This notion is especially applicable to sexual assault allegations against Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. While many Americans were horrified at claims that he behaved inappropriately with 14 and 16-year old girls, others were more skeptical. In essence, critics questioned the timing of the accusations. After the allegations surfaced, Moore denied the claims, citing them as politically motivated.

Weeks later, the nation learned that Beverly Nelson, one of Moore’s accusers forged and lied about key evidence. Many Americans immediately affirmed the loss of Nelson’s plausibility and furthermore cited the misleading act as proof that all accusations against Moore were trumped up.

In recent days, the people of this nation have questioned whether or not public figures should lose their jobs or resign on the basis of accusations alone. The age old “innocent until proven guilty” factor still remains, note many Americans.

President Trump has denied all accusations of sexual misconduct. He even affirmed them as a tool employed by Democrats after claims of collusion with Russia fell through:

Trump supporters have rallied behind the President, asserting the aforementioned allegations against him as fake news. Like Roy Moore supporters, most Trump fans perceive the accusations as politically motivated and untrue.
