Texas Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson was recently asked about the Harvey Weinstein scandal and stunned everyone by saying women bear some of the responsibility for the abuse. Can you even imagine the reaction if a Republican had said this?

Dem Rep Claims Women Can ‘Invite’ Sexual Assault [VIDEO]
Democrat Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson said Wednesday that women bear some “responsibility” for sexual harassment and assault because of their “inviting” behavior.
Johnson said she was disturbed to find out that producer Harvey Weinstein was a sexual predator, but also put some of the blame on women for their style of dress and how they act around men.
“I grew up in a time when it was as much the woman’s responsibility as it was a man’s — how you were dressed, what your behavior was,” the Texas Democrat said. “I’m from the old school that you can have behaviors that appear to be inviting. It can be interpreted as such. That’s the responsibility, I think, of the female. I think that males have a responsibility to be professional themselves.”

Will the media ask other Democrats if they agree with this? Don’t count on it. That would be too embarrassing for them.
