    An extra-marital affair. Spanking. Slapping. Shoving. Taking semi-nude photos that led to a felony charge of invasion of privacy. Threats. Bipartisan calls for him to resign. Greitens calls the investigation a "witch hunt." Where have we heard that before? And, oh yeah, he's a Republican.

    Missouri Governor Eric Greitens accused of unwanted sexual encounters with hairdresser

    Another wealthy powerful white man accused of sexual improprieties -- what a surprise! Ronan Farrow won a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of Harvey Weinstein's sexual assaults and he may win a second Pulitzer for exposing this sleazeball:

    Another government official abusing women and abusing his power. When will it end?

    FEMA official being investigated for sexual misconduct
    CBS News, Jul 30 2018 4:44 PM

    Corey Coleman, the former top personnel officer at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is being investigated for widespread sexual harassment. He is alleged to have hired college friends and women he encountered on online dating sites, and he is accused of transferring some of those women into departments where his friends worked, so that his friends could have sex with them. FEMA Administrator Brock Long called allegations against FEMA's former chief of personnel "deeply disturbing" and said in a statement that he had "no choice" but to request further investigation by the DHS office of the Inspector General.

    In July, six women accused Les Moonves of sexual misconduct and harassment. Recently, six more women came forward with similar allegations. Moonves' resignation today was no surprise. He and CBS are donating $20 million to organizations that support the #MeToo movement. Ya know, Les, donating money is not going to undo what you did. Good luck in your next endeavor -- and tell Harvey Weinstein hello for me.

    In response to the President's insensitive tweet that Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assaulting her in 1982, would have filed a police report immediately if the attack was "as bad as she says," a new hashtag and a new movement have begun:

    Many millions of us have enjoyed Bill Cosby's television series and comedy albums. (His routine about being at the dentist's is hilarious.) Thus, today's news is especially sad, even though justice has been served -- and even though many will say he should have gotten a lengthier sentence. Cosby is, as the Los Angeles Times puts it, "the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be locked up." He also has to register as a sex offender.

    Donald Trump, who has bragged about being able to kiss women and grab them by the p***y because he's "a star" and who has been accused of sexual improprieties by 19 women, all of whom he says are lying, is now attacking the women who have accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. They, too, are liars, according to Trump. These wealthy white Republican men certainly stick together!

    Trump is also criticizing the "dangerous" #MeToo movement. News flash, Donald: Men who have never sexually assaulted a woman don't have to worry about allegations. Of course that lets you and Kavanaugh out.

    Defending Kavanaugh, Trump laments #MeToo as 'very dangerous' for powerful men

    "We are privileged white male Republicans! How dare all these woman reveal how we've raped them, assaulted them and abused them!"
