REVERSE THE SEXES AND THERE’S NO STORY HERE:
Writing for his college paper, Cory Booker once admitted that he groped a friend when he was 15 years old.
Now the mayor of Newark and a candidate for New Jersey’s open Senate seat, a college-aged Booker described the experience of grabbing the girl’s breast and having his hand pushed away.
But it is unfortunate for him that people are bringing this up as so many other Democratic politicians — and feminist heroes — are having problems.
UPDATE: Ann Althouse proves my point about double standards, and also demonstrates that even I am not immune.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Is Althouse playing the Drudge juxtaposition game?
