I agree, every claim of sexual assault should be taken seriously. It should be reported to the police (with or without your personal attorney
present), it should be investigated and the case should be prosecuted if possible.
The rights of the accuser must be preserved just like the rights of the accused (innocent until proven guilty).
If the accuser chooses to just go publicly with their accusations before anything else than it seems rwasonable (to me anyway) that their motivations,
timing, proof/lack of proof, etc. Could make them subject to scrutiny and that reasonable responses from both the public and accused (who has no
reasonable obligation to be nice or roll over for the accuser).
I find that the how and when someone makes an accusation holds much more weight on the believability of it than anything to do with political parties.
Of course there are extreme believers on both sides who will take the accusers or the accuseds side as gospel, on words alone.
Neither the accuser nor the accused should be attacked strictly on she said-he said and no one should be drug through the mud without the results of
an investigation, but that's not how it works unfortunately.
