It’s been obvious for a long time that Democrats no longer believe in due process, particularly when it comes to sexual harassment claims. Believe all women!
But there’s something bone chilling about hearing one of their most prominent figures say it as plainly as Catherine Lhamon did Tuesday at her confirmation hearing.
Lhamon is President Joe Biden’s pick to be the assistant secretary for civil rights at the Education Department. Her greatest hits include signing the 2014 Obama-era “Dear Colleagues” letter that pressured higher education institutions under Title IX’s anti-discriminatory statute to more aggressively pursue sexual harassment claims in ways that were often shockingly unfair to the accused.
In 2020, under then-secretary Betsy DeVos, the department issued a formal rule on the matter. Democrats, including Biden, suffered a psychotic break because the new changes put in place a formal process that, unliked the Dear Colleagues guidance, considered both the needs of the victims and the right of the accused
