It’s obvious that private sector policy is different from the government with respect to sexual assault allegations.  If someone in the private sector is accused of sexual assault, they’re fired.  But if someone in government is accused, there could be evidence they assaulted someone, yet nothing happens to them.  It’s shameful, and it shows that powerful men in suits can get away with a lot.  Men in government should be dealt with like people in the private sector– fired, impeached, whatever.  Hopefully the way accusations are handled will change one day, but for now, people should continue to speak up about sexual assault.
