Fiery Hannity: Booker, Ellison Show Dems' 'Hypocrisy, Double Standard' on Kavanaugh Allegation
Sean Hannity blasted what he called Democrats' hypocrisy on claims of sexual misconduct against men in politics.
Hannity said that while several Democrats, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California, have demanded Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford be believed, they have not acted the same way when a liberal is accused.
Hannity said Democratic National Committee Deputy Chairman Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota is facing accusations from his ex-girlfriend, who says she was assaulted and harassed.
He said the woman claimed in August that Ellison dragged her through their home, saying, "[Expletive], get the [expletive] out of my house." Hannity added that Ellison still went on to win the Minnesota Attorney General primary election on the Democratic side.
"[You'll be] hard-pressed to find any Democrats [supporting] Ellison's girlfriend. We haven't heard from Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris or Adam 'Shifty' Schiff," Hannity said.
He noted the woman had to tweet her allegations because the party "ignored" her. Those allegations included an official physician's report of the alleged abuse, he said.
"Then you've got [New Jersey] Senator Cory Booker, Spartacus himself," Hannity said.
Booker wrote a column in his collegiate newspaper in 1992 detailing how he groped a woman -- who later said she was intoxicated and only wanted to be "friends."
"I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I finally reached my mark," Booker wrote in the Stanford Daily, Hannity reported.
"Do you not see the hypocrisy and double standard?" Hannity asked, noting that Booker wants a delay of Kavanaugh's confirmation vote.
He added that Booker's office reportedly told his team that the suggestion being made is a "right-wing attack."
Hannity also described allegations against Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and former President Bill Clinton.
