(Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story contained the names of some of the candidates listed by Enough is Enough. It incorrectly implied that Texas state Rep. Matt Rinaldi, was among candidates the organization claims to have faced accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior or comments. Rinaldi has not faced any such claims. This should have been made clear in the earlier version and MRCTV apologizes to Matt Rinaldi for the error.)
#EnoughIsEnough Voter Project is a political action committee (PAC) with a goal of “standing up to bullies in Congress, in state legislatures, in the media, and at the ballot box” - but according to them all the bullies belong to one party. Are you surprised?
On their website they say, "Many politicians who have been credibly accused of serious sexual misconduct or abuse face no meaningful consequences from law enforcement, the government or their political party." They state, “The #EnoughIsEnough Voter Project is targeting candidates for public office who—in both public and private life—have turned against women on the issues of sexual harassment or violence against women and children.”
In their description, they forgot to mention the candidates they would be targeting would be Republicans - and only Republicans. On the list compiled by the liberal PAC, you will find nothing but members of the GOP.
This list seems rather light considering other prominent names have been overlooked, such as Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), who admitted to slapping his late ex-wife, leaving her with “some discoloration of her left eye and some puffiness.” Also overlooked, Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), accused by his ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, of physical and emotional abuse.
Somehow this group forgot that these sexual harassment and violence allegations have crossed political lines. Is it possible this slipped their minds because this project is another political movement that is only concerned with pushing their political agenda?
Remember the group claims this voter project “is targeting candidates for political office“ who have acted inappropriately toward women and children. But not all candidates are being targeted.
Are there some groups of people out there who actually want to end sexual misconduct? Sure there are. Is this group one of them? The evidence so far is that it’s another political group whose only interest is smearing Republicans.
