Any allegations of sexual harassment or misconduct make me angry. It is never OK for people in power to use that power to abuse others,  Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Bill Cosby, Bill O’Reilly, or Harvey Weinstein.  But we are still a country of laws and principles, one is that you are innocent until proven guilty. It seems that when it comes to alleged sex crimes, the trial of public opinion takes away the benefit afforded by law, that of presumed innocence.
