What part don’t you understand? There are hundreds of years of history of powerful men in this country doing sexually and ethically immoral things and having little or no consequences. Most recently, one got on the Supreme Court. I don’t have to suppose what would happen if she’d been a man — I know it for a fact, based on the history of what has always happened before.

Yes, she could have tried to stay but due to the double standard, felt she couldn’t and no, I didn’t say anything about the legality -only as relates to MJ use, which was brought up as a red herring by somebody else try to cover their ass after saying something stupid.

Your extreme level of emotion around this topic, so extreme that you can’t even properly understand what I’ve said and not said, is really interesting. What’s that about? And you’re so apoplectic that you didn’t even realize that the photos in question are of Hill and a woman… not a bunch of “dudes.” She and her husband were both having a consensual relationship with a woman. It wasn’t an “affair.” That’s why he had access to the photos.
