The most powerful female Democrat on Capitol Hill has turned her back on women. Again. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, entrenched 13-term incumbent, refuses to say whether creepster San Diego Mayor Bob Filner should resign amid an avalanche of longstanding sexual harassment allegations, staff resignations and now a lawsuit.
"What goes on in San Diego is up to the people of San Diego. I'm not here to make any judgments," declared the very same feminist crusader who has spearheaded unabashedly judgmental nationwide attacks on the so-called "Republican War on Women."
Democrat Filner's former spokeswoman revealed Monday that he ordered her to "work without her panties on" and viewed women "as sexual objects or stupid idiots." Other women alleged that Democrat Filner groped, forcibly kissed and harassed them. His own fiancee broke up with him two weeks ago after taking stock of his "abusiveness" and "disrespect" for women. Filner "apologized" and admitted, "I need help," but he refuses to step down.
The sheriff's office has set up a Bob Filner Abuse Hotline, and the mayor is now forbidden from meeting with women behind closed doors. At least one legal expert believes some of the claims rise to the level of sexual assault.
Instead of anger toward her misogynistic Democratic colleague, Pelosi got all hot and bothered at a journalist who asked her last week about the former 10-term California congressman -- with whom she co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus, by the way. "Don't identify him as my former colleague," Pelosi snippy-snapped.
Okey-dokey. Let's just refer to boorish Bob Filner as the latest beneficiary of Pelosi's Democratic Male Perv Protection Racket. When it comes to holding scandal-plagued predatory liberal men accountable for their scummy behavior, See No Evil Nancy's pattern of malign neglect is unrivaled.
In a New York non-shocker of the year, another of Pelosi's former colleagues, Anthony Weiner, is embroiled in a new sex controversy. Weiner admitted Tuesday that transcripts of lewd sex chats between him and a 22-year-old woman in 2011 -- leaked on a gossip site called "The Dirty" -- are real. His apparent nom de sext: "Carlos Danger."
Vocal Democratic women were nowhere to be found. No surprise. Remember: When the original Weiner nude Twitter selfie scandal broke, Pelosi and her femme-a-gogue twin Debbie Wasserman Schultz dragged their Beltway heels as long as possible. Not until Weiner's interactions with an underage girl in Delaware were exposed by conservative bloggers and confirmed by police did the women call for him to resign.
