Gillibrand gets blow back for knocking Bill Clinton in public…

The New York Senator says Bill Clinton should have resigned in light of his impeachment connected to the Monica Lewinsky situation….

A former aide to Hillary Clinton attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as a “hypocrite” late Thursday night over comments the lawmaker made to The New York Times that former President Bill Clinton should have resigned during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

“Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual blowjob. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand?” Philippe Reines, an adviser to Hillary Clinton during her tenure in the Senate, at the State Department and during last year’s campaign, wrote on Twitter. “Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons’ endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite. Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Best of luck.”

Included in Reines’ online post was a link to the Times story, in which Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said it would have been the “appropriate response” for Bill Clinton to resign in response to revelations that he had a sexual relationship with a White House intern, Lewinsky, while he was president. Gillibrand couched her statement to the Times by saying Clinton’s scandal occurred in a different era and that it would have played out much differently had it happened today.

A spokesman for Gillibrand emphasized that point in a follow-up with the Times. Gillibrand’s office did not immediately return a request for a comment on Reines’ online attack….

    1. I DO…..

      I never liked my junior Senator….

      Her first version is that Bill Clinton should have stepped down…

      My felling today remains the same as back then….

      There was sex between two OF AGE adults…

      Clinton did NOT force himself on the woman….

      Should a married guy be cheating on his wife?….Nope…

      Is THAT my business?

      Nope…

      Is it Hillary Clinton’s business…

      Yep….

      Did she forgive her husband?

      Yes…

      Why was he impeached but NOT convicted?

      Because he LIED about the incident…
      NOT because of his actions, which is NOBODIES business but the people involved…

      He was tried by his peers for lying….

      Gillibrand has her view…
      That’s fine…
      She has already walked her comments back acknowledging that these are different times…

      It’s my bias…
      But she’s a knucklehead for being the ONLY US Senator to vote against the guy who will keep Donald Trump from doing something stupid with the military might of this country…Defense Sec Mattis…

      I have NO use for her and haven’t voted for her….
      Won’t vote against her…
      But she don’t get my vote or respect…

      1. Gillibrand remark on Clinton sends shockwaves through Democratic Party

        …Gillibrand’s remarks have put other Democrats in the uncomfortable position of being asked about their former president at a time when they — and she — would prefer to be putting pressure on the GOP over Moore and Trump himself.

        Even some Democrats who are close to Gillibrand were wary of defending her remarks outright on Friday. Placing the former president in the same conversation as others like Trump, Moore and Harvey Weinstein is not fair, they maintain….

  1. If a senior executive was found to be dating an intern in most US corporations, she/he would be fired. In most companies there are very strict prohibitions on dating within the department or in dating someone in another company that you do business with. I have signed agreements stating that if I develop a romantic interest in anyone in my company, I must notify Human Resources.

    These policies are designed to prevent favoritism, or the perception of favoritism, and to maintain employee morale. Like it or not, especially when it comes to top executives and managers, people dating harms the work environment.

    1. I disagree with that policy Z….

      What social action people take AFTER work isn’t your job’s business…

      Notifing HR about that isn’t their business…

      And I’d bet that EVERYPLACE you’ve worked at people have gone around the ‘rule’….

      I DO think that it would prudent for the ‘love police’ at a company to make sure that people in relationships do NOT work together in same department so that there is no unfair favoritism….

  2. If a couple started dating within the same department, the company would try to move one person to a different department. If there were no openings that made such a change essentially impossible, then the company would ask one of the two to resign.

    If a manager started dating a subordinate from the same department and HR found out about it (You wouldn’t believe the nonsense that HR hears), they would take almost immediate action. Failure to respond promptly would open the company up to lawsuits.

    1. So they do what I suggested?

      I think firing them is punitive ….

      And moralistic…

      The company should have NO business in this which seems cultural…

  3. A senior executive who started a relationship with an intern would be asked to resign.

    If that was your suggestion, then they are following it.

    1. It is not Z…..
      I made my point clearly
      If the boss supervised the employee one of them could be reassigned….
      NO ONE SHOULD LOSE THEIR JOB over their personal lives….
      This is like firing a employee for being gay
      I see no big difference
      In fact the couple’s personal rights are being abused if one loses their job
      The boss stays but their love interest loses their job?

  4. If it is a senior executive, reassignment is almost certainly not a possibility,

    This has nothing to do with morality or sexual orientation. It has to do with company morale and threats of lawsuits. Companies do lots of things because of threats of lawsuits.
