Even a good man, who had served honorably in church and governmental offices could be accused by someone willing to accept enough money in an off shore bank paid by enemies out to destroy him. 30 year old incidents of she says/he says leave no room for growth and change in an individual. It negates repentance and improvement. There are statutes of limitations for a reason. These politically motivated accusations should be disregarded by good people.

I agree with the overall views of the article, except that accusations are beginning to ignore the rule of law. When a mere accusation can become the "truth" without due process, the accusation can become a "witch hunt" and the rule of law becomes mute. Accusers along with lawyers are looking for a settlement and innocents can be railroaded without any appeal to reason or fact. There are no penalties for false accusations. Another problem is the continued spread of the false narrative that many men are predators and all sex is rape. This narrative is pushed by the feminists who dominate the media and many college campuses. The accusations of sexual assault requires no rules of evidence, corroborative witnesses, and the right to confront the accuser. All destroy Constitutional protections contained in the Bill of Rights. The mere accusation can destroy a career and a life.
