It looks like Arlen Specter is at it again. Back in 1991, he attacked Anita Hill by attempting to make it appear that she was committing perjury when she testified that Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her on the job. I remember this very well and I remember she was questioned as to why she waited so long before making this claim of sexual harassment. Even my husband questioned this gap in time. It was then that I proceeded to tell him about my own experiences with sexual harassment at past jobs. After hearing my stories, he was shocked and then he understood that it is difficult for a woman to speak up about this issue because way back then, the people in authority would not listen to the woman and would defend the perpetrator who was usually in a management position.
Now, Arlen is preparing for his run for re-election in 2010 and he is already using Karl Rove tactics in his attack on Eric Holder. What the press isn’t talking about is Arlen Specter’s connection to Eric Holder. They go way back, into the middle and late 1970’s.
Dengre has a must read diary at Daily Kos. Arlen Specter is exposed for all his sleaziness. The information in this diary is important because this is the truth that will need to be exposed about Arlen Specter during the 2010 election cycle.
Pennsylvania, especially Democrats and Independents, it is time to remove Specter and replace him with someone that has integrity and that places the good of Pennsylvania ahead of their own political career.
