Talk about brain dead stupid........??
WASHINGTON — There was a great deal of public outcry Wednesday after U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn made a comment about sexual harassment that many found disturbing.
While many were upset by the Columbia Democrat’s comment, “Who elected them?” It was a different comment, a comparison Clyburn allegedly made behind closed doors, that many found upsetting. Especially in his home state.
A writer for The New York Times Magazine and National Geographic tweeted that Clyburn invoked the name of Susan Smith, South Carolina’s infamous child murderer.
Robert Draper tweeted that Clyburn reportedly mentioned Smith in his defense of colleague Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), who is currently being investigated for sexual harassment by the U.S. House Ethics Committee.
“James Clyburn compared Conyers’ accusers to the child murderer Susan Smith, who initially claimed a black man had abducted her kids. Clyburn said, these are all white women who’ve made these charges against Conyers,” Draper posted on Twitter.
When asked if that comment was true, Draper said he verified it through two sources, adding “Clyburn has used the Susan Smith parallel more than once, to members & staffers.”
