The daily revelations about sexual harassment means it's time for Democrats to reassess their view on Bill Clinton, writes Michelle Goldberg in a New York Times op-ed. Goldberg reviews the claims against him made by various women and arrives at the conclusion stated in the op-ed's headline: "I Believe Juanita." It refers to Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Clinton of raping her in 1978, when she was 35 and he was the attorney general of Arkansas.
Her accusation is especially troubling to Goldberg because it's similar to accusations against Harvey Weinstein. "She claimed they had plans to meet in a hotel coffee shop, but at the last minute he asked to come up to her hotel room instead, where he raped her." Five witnesses say she told them about what happened.
