Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier (Calif.) admitted on Tuesday that she was "offended" by the way that women were treated by Democrats in the 1990's after they accused then-President Bill Clinton of sexual assault.

MSNBC host Chuck Todd noted that Speier wasn't elected to Congress until 2008, but asked her whether the Democratic response in the 1990's looked bad for shaming the accusers of Clinton.

"It's bad. I remember being a young mother of a 6-year-old at the time and having to explain to him what blowjob was and I was offended by it, so the victim-blaming absolutely was a thing of the past," Speier said.

"One of the survivors I spoke to said, ‘You know, going through the process of filing a complaint was almost worse than the harassment,' so this system has to be changed here," she added.

Several prominent liberals and journalists have been recently reevaluating the merits of the sexual allegations against the former Democratic president, according to a Washington Free Beacon report.

New York Times journalist Michelle Goldberg argued in an op-ed on Monday that she believes Juanita Broaddrick's claim of being raped by Bill Clinton in an Arkansas hotel room and said that it sounded very similar to the allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

BS, on multiple levels. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Speier)

First, despite trying for a nice homey image, she was a member of CA's legislature during Clinton's years.

Second, her son was 6YO in 1994, well before the Monica story came out (maybe even before it happened!).

Third, and most important, WHERE WAS SPEIER'S VOICE THE PAST 20 YEARS?!

ETA: Where was Jackie Speiers's voice when the entire White House staff was slandering and demeaning Bill's victims? Where was Jackie Speiers's voice when HilLIARy was slandering and demeaning Bill's victims? Where was Jackie Speiers's voice when slanderer HilLIARy ran for Senate in 2000? And again in 2006? Where was Jackie Speiers's voice when slanderer HilLIARy ran for President in 2008? Where was Jackie Speiers's voice when slanderer HilLIARy was appointed Secretary of State in 2009? Where was Jackie Speiers's voice when slanderer HilLIARy ran for President in 2016?
