Because the accuser must be credited and completely believed...U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill...has become the target of a vicious barrage of rumor and innuendo...stories about her forcing herself on under-aged boys and girls...her preference for the timid and meek always driving her onward.
Similar to the denials ROY MOORE issued when confronted with the same kind of "hit-job" accusations...CLAIRE said she never was at MOTEL 6...the young man didn't leave the light on for her...and...the pole-dancing 14 year old never saw Claire naked.
Naturally...because the accuser is to be believed and never doubted...McCaskill will be ruined in Missouri come the 2018 election cycle. Her denials were ignored since the accuser was to be believed and not doubted.
Seeking insulation from the "hit-job"...Claire asked U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in exchange for her vote on tax cuts do her a favor and declare he believed her and not the 1200 accusers.
