Gretchen Whitmer backs Joe Biden on alleged assault: ’not every claim is equal’

Michigan Gov Whitmer said that she believes Biden’s denial of an assault allegation against him, and added that she saw no contradiction between believing Biden and encouraging survivors of assault to speak up.’Just because you’re a survivor doesn’t mean that every claim is equal,’ she said. ’We need to give people an opportunity to tell their story,’ Whitmer said. ’Then we have a duty to vet it.’

Someone without proof that "proclaims" Biden is innocent strictly for political purposes is? a) hypocritical b) unethical c) delusional d) power hungry e) all of the above

How was it said in animal farm? "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal then others" i think that was it. It was not supposed to be a suggestion on how society or a justice system runs.

The Guardian headline says “Not every claim is equal”, I can agree with that but perhaps not in the way they mean. A political opponent making a claim at an inconvenient time without any witnesses to back up that at the time the person making the claim told them something happened. Someone who does not remember key details of what something that if it happened would have been a big enough deal to stick in their mind. Their claim does deserve less weight than someone who is nominally on the same side of the political fence (although might be part of the turf war between Sanders and Biden supporters). Someone who knows where the alleged incident happened, who has some collaboration of friends and neighbours to an issue with Biden at that period. Someone who definitely did as I understand it know and work for Biden. The claims against Biden do deserve more weight although still not enough to convict. All that can really be told from this is how well Biden sticks to the standard he applied to a political opponent, how transparent he is willing to be in allowing the access to records etc, oh and a bit about him handling pressure.
