    Representative Alex Mooney [backed by former President Trump] resoundingly defeated Representative David McKinley in West Virginia. But in Nebraska, Mr. Trump’s preferred candidate for governor, Charles W. Herbster, lost in a three-way race to Jim Pillen, who had the backing of the departing Gov. Pete Ricketts.
    Mr. Herbster had tried to make the Nebraska governor’s primary a referendum on Mr. Trump. He called it “a proxy war between the entire Republican establishment” and the former president. He cited Mr. Trump at every opportunity. But the race became about Mr. Herbster himself, after he faced accusations of groping.
    Mr. Trump is backing two more Republican candidates for governor, in Idaho and Georgia, both of whom are challenging Republican incumbents and neither of whom is favored to win. Mr. Trump’s picks for Senate in North Carolina and Pennsylvania both have a chance to win in next week’s primaries.

Did the #MeToo movement change your opinion on the prevalence of sexual assault?

409 votes, 43 comments

Context: Celebrity chef acquitted of sexual harassment charges in #MeToo trial.


No - It's always been depressingly clear that too many men - especially men in power - throughout our history have gotten away with treating women in reprehensible ways. The #metoo movement didn't change my opinion of this situation, but I am glad it has shed more light on the situation. It is very sad that some women have taken advantage of the situation, and they should be called out for it, but it does not in any way diminish the number of men who have taken advantage of *their* situation without being called out.

Yes - But, I have mixed thoughts. I’m a senior citizen and therefore spent my youth in a different era. Aggressive sexual overtures were more acceptable. I don’t mean rape, I just mean phy...

No - While I think the Me Too movement was important to root out some especially egregious and ingrained bad actors, I also th...
