When questioned Sunday about the credible sexual abuse allegations against Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, one Democrat congressman spent less than 10 seconds addressing them before pivoting her attention back to the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“Wouldn’t the concern about Kavanaugh and Professor Ford be more credible if Democrats were also condemning similar charges against Democrats in their midst, including Congressman Ellison?” CNN host Jake Tapper had asked Sen. Mazie Hirono during Sunday’s broadcast of “State of the Union.”
Christine Blasey Ford is the woman who claims without evidence that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a high school party decades ago. It remains unclear why anyone believes Ford, since she’s unable to name where specifically the assault happened or when specifically it occurred. And every individual who she’s cited as a corroborating witness has denied her claims.
The same can’t be said of Ellison, for whom the evidence includes 911 call records, medical records and testimonial from one of his victim’s sons. Yet Democrats have been silent about the Minnesota congressman’s bad behavior. And judging by Hirono’s reply Sunday, they intend to remain silent.
“I’ve been very clear that I make no excuses for anybody who engages in this kind of behavior,” she said. “And as far as Keith Ellison, these allegations need to be investigated and appropriate action taken.”

Here is another medical record, 6 months before the other one.
I specifically went into the emotional/narc abuse during this visit because I needed more than routine test done due to the nature of that type of abuse.

Though outspoken actor James Woods recently described Hirono as a “sexist witch” for telling men to “shut up,” she seems more like a political hack. But her hackery extends beyond Ellison.
When asked by Tapper whether Kavanaugh deserves the presumption of innocence just like anyone else, the congresswoman suggested that because of his originalist and conservative rulings, he doesn’t.
“I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases,” she said. “As I said, his credibility is already very questionable in my mind and in the minds of a lot of my fellow Judiciary Committee members, the Democrats.”
Just to be clear, “evidence” of his alleged lack of credibility doesn’t actually exist.
“When I say that he’s very outcome-driven, he has an ideological agenda, is very outcome-driven. And I can sit here and talk to you about some of the cases that exemplifies his, in my view, inability to be fair in the cases that come before him.”
Nowhere in the clip above does she actually cite any cases. Instead she speaks only generally of Kavanaugh’s demonstrably originalist / conservative judicial rulings, suggesting she believes conservatives don’t deserve the presumption of innocence.
Despite Hirono’s stunningly ignorant and totalitarian outlook, she commands strong support on social media, where brainwashed liberal Democrats have been eating up her words like candy:
Sen. Mazie Hirono is my hero.

If there’s any silver lining to the Kavanagh debacle, it’s that I found a new Senate hero, @maziehirono

It’s unclear whether these liberal Democrats either have never been told the definition of the word “hero” or are simply out of their minds.
