Posted on 11/30/2017 9:59:38 AM PST by blam
U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn could find himself in hot water.
A flippant response the Columbia Democrat made to reporters while walking in the Capitol is drawing the ire of many.
When asked about sexual harassment allegations against colleague Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Clyburn seemed to suggest elected officials should be held to a different standard than other public figures.
In a video posted on Twitter, the 77-year-old Clyburn is walking to an elevator with Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond (D-La.), when asked Other men in other industries have faced similar accusations and gotten out of the way, resign, stepped down, far faster than he has, right Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer?
A writer for The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic tweeted that Clyburn invoked the name of Susan Smith, South Carolinas infamous child murderer, in his defense of Conyers.
James Clyburn compared Conyers accusers to the child murderer Susan Smith, who initially claimed a black man had abducted her kids. Clyburn said, these are all white women whove made these charges against Conyers, Robert Draper tweeted.
When asked if that comment was true, Draper said he verified it through two sources, adding Clyburn has used the Susan Smith parallel more than once, to members & staffers.

Why of course.
Those wonderful men who keep our laws constantly moving ever leftward should be able to call upon any woman that appears within their field of view to do her patriotic duty.
Jim Clyburn. The gift that keeps on giving.
Conyers admitted to the hospital claiming lightheadedness, clutching his chest, and saying, “Elizabeth, Elizabeth honey I’m coming. I’m coming.”
Clyburn’s remark merely emphasis’s the position held by many elected certainly the Clinton’s...that the Law doesn’t not apply to them. I suspect Mr. Clyburn’s closet is brimming over with unlawful schatzi.
according to media he sure did but tried to hide it. Rather than reporting it as required and paying the settlement in the approved manner he used his office staff funds to pay her a three month "salary" for a no show job after she resigned.
We will soon find out.................
Clyburn said, these are all white women whove made these charges against Conyers, Robert Draper tweeted.
Race Card used - check!
When are these Black people like Clyburn gonna start acting like loyal Americans.......defending the republic against scum like Conyers and Franken.
Still acting like African slaves after all these years?
Come on.....grow up.
Every so often they let slip what we already know.
Conyers buddies in the Congressional Black Caucus are pushing him to get out. Theyre running scared.....the C/B/C does not want to be under a microscope.
Conyers is a founder......L/E needs to audit bank accounts of the Congressional Black Caucus (C/B/C).....and the office accounts of its members, for instance, Conyers.....and Clyburn.
NOTE WELL The Bank Secrecy Act was passed to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting criminal enterprises, government fraud, money laundering, tax evasion or other unlawful activities.
Under the Bank Secrecy Act, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity that might be indicative of govt fraud, money laundering, embezzlement, and other financial crimes.
<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer of of govt funds. Govt monies may pay for personal and private expenses, credit cards, real estate subsidies and vehicle purchases, and costs to engage in sexual activity.
<><> To cover their tracks, fake invoices might be created to show that money deposited into accounts was being used for legitimate govt purposes.
The scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from federal and state sources that actually covered the transfer of funds for govt employees own use.
<><> L/E is directed to get ahold of: (1) copies of C/B/C checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, and, (8) any other books or records. L/E should also explore (a) monies paid to brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.
<><> L/E should scrutinize bank accounts for suspicious activities: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals, (d) purchases of airline tickets for female companions.
<><> Bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC other accounts, to operate personal businesses. Govt fraud can also be facilitated by withdrawals, gift cards purchases, credit card purchases and intra-bank transfers from govt accounts into personal accounts.
<><> A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, resort travel and gifts from luxury outlets for wives and mistresses.
Taxpayers demand the Bank Secrecy Act be used to prosecute govt fraud pronto.
No doubt about it, the DC creatures DO believe they ARE above the law. Seems they are begging for an attitude adjustment. We shouldnt let them down.
We don’t care.
We don’t have to.
It must be printed on that “Get Out of Jail Free” card that exempts them from jail when they drive drunk (the Kennedys) or on that “No Obamacare for Me, Sucker” insurance card they carry.
A different standard, yes. Our elected masters need to be held to a much higher standard.
