Offenses are not limited to one party

Everyone should be appalled by the behavior attributed to Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein by a growing list of actresses. And while the issue could become one about degrading morality, it should not be a political football.

Some conservatives seem to enjoy berating Weinstein while noting his support of liberal causes, but this type of offense is not limited to one party.

Just consider the allegations levied against the one-time “America’s dad,” Bill Cosby, or that Pennsylvania Republican Tim Murphy resigned his congressional seat after text messages surfaced in which he told a mistress to have an abortion if she thought she was pregnant.

Again, sexual harassment and infidelity should be considered to be despicable. But such behavior isn’t confined to one political view.
