Let's take a look at some noted people who made mistakes in life and were forgiven and continued on:

Robert Byrd: KKK member. Changed bigtime and became a very LONGSTANDING U.S. Senator who served honorably.
Bill Clinton: Multi-Infidelity; Admitted Misleading Statements About Infidelity (Apologized, continue to successful post-presidency.)
Jesse Jackson: Infidelity (Made personal amends. Continued as important civil rights, political, and religious leader.)
Marion Barry: Lying, Criminal Drug Use and Possession (Did re-hab, served his time, re-entered public life at the local level.)
George Wallace: Defender of Segregation (Later reversed those views, moderated, and was widely forgiven, and continued to serve as governor well into the 1980's.)
Mel Gibson: Anti-Semetic and Racist Rants When Drunk (Apologized many times, took hiatus, got alcohol abuse treatment, and is now back as a successful actor and director.)
Joy Reid: Homophobic Statements (Apologized and continues to work successfully.)
Tulsi Gabbard: Homophobic Statements (Apologized and continues to serve successfully.)
Kevin Hart: Homophobic Statements (Apologized and continues very successfully.)

And the list goes on and on.

Also, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned many slaves, and Abraham Lincoln for a long while was not for ending slavery but just containing it. (Washington said in his will his slaves would be free only upon the death of his wife. She released them while she was still living. He pre-deceased her.) (Lincoln even said at one point, "If I could save the union without freeing any slaves I would do it." He placed saving the union above slavery. He later was for getting rid of slavery entirely on principle.)

We all make mistakes and misjudgements. Hopefully we live, we learn, we change, we grow, and we earn forgiveness and chances to continue on. Mistakes long ago should not define use forever. EVERYONE makes mistakes. EVERYONE.

Pussy Grabber POTUS, Kavanaugh SCOTUS, racist Gov. of FL, racist Steve King in office...

and Franken gone and now Northam. Dems are setting precedents and standards that can not be met, and the double standards are sickening. Put ANYONE'S life under a microscope and there will be some kind of dirt. EVERYONE!

EVERYONE has a past and some mistakes in it. These do not define us forever. The Northam thing was 35 VERY LONG YEARS AGO!! My goodness.

We are going deeper and deeper down a bad rabbit hole with this. Eating our own time and time and time again, setting impossible standards. And the GOPers are laughing their asses off at us. THEY have won again.

Here we FUCKING go again. "Pussy Grabber" and Kavanaugh in ultimate power, and we hang our guy who

wore a stupid costume 35 years ago. So fucking typical. What a travesty! Yes, it was a very DUMB and WRONG thing to do. But it was 35 frigging years ago.

Northam has apologized. Northam is a good man, a good doctor, a good veteran, and NOT a racist. And ENOUGH of these rushes to make him resign for something SO long ago. This one dumb thing 35 LONG years ago does not define the man today nor his entire life.

Tell me who hasn't said or done something dumb in their past. Who?????

This was about two weeks ago, but this is GREAT! This is guts! This is how ALL Dems need to act.

Great!
