While alive, George H.W. Bush made the news for being a child molester: “Woman Says George H.W. Bush Groped Her When She Was 16: ‘I Was a Child'” (TIME, 11/13/2017). Also a Presidential butt-squeezer: “George HW Bush accused of groping woman while president” (Guardian, 11/26/2017).
Now that he is dead and buried, the #MeToo angle seems to have died with him. Current media stories don’t say “Former President and accused groper…”
If Les Moonves were to drop dead tomorrow, would his “transactional sex” in the workplace (nytimes) be forgiven/forgotten?
