Swing and a Miss: Nebraska Democrats Fail on Herbster Sexual Assualt Response

Mustering the same rhetorical prowess one would expect from a second-grade schoolyard bully, leaders of the Nebraska Democratic Party raced to their social media accounts to remind voters that Governor Ricketts has no problem supporting Donald Trump despite numerous allegations of sexual assault. Ricketts is a lame-duck governor with zero chance at higher political office (unless Fischer or Sasse retires). Even the most generous observer will acknowledge that Ricketts calling …

Creating a Safe Space for Predators

This blog post has changed significantly since I started writing it this morning, but I’m a master of starting a blog post and not finishing it; so let’s dive in anyway.
