curious about what happened to innocence until proven guilty?

Somebody sounds a little defensive...

I'm shocked Julian didn't have Garrison Keilor on his list.
Great call. Definitely a diddler. Total oversight on my part.

Well yeah, except in the eyes of their employer.

Generally, the only limitations for a private employer firing someone (non-union) is if the termination is based on the employee's race, gender, national origin, disability, religion or age (so long as the employee is at least 40 years old).

Just about everything else is fair game, so long as it's not retaliatory for whistle blowing, but even then, good luck getting your job back. 

And most of these have gone through a human resources review, which is just about all the employer needs.

Maybe my creep radar is just more finely attuned than most.

So you have groper-radar? Shame on you for not exposing these creeps sooner!  Who else is on your secret list?
Robert Downey Jr, Charie Sheen, Richard Branson, Steven Spielberg, Brian Kelly, Jay-Z, Drew Carey, Malcolm Gladwell, Prince Harry, Gene Wilder, Conor Oberst, Joel Olsteen, Ray LaMontagne et al.
Pretty sure you missed the ball on Gene Wilder.
A grope is a grope, bro.

Theres a "cold, dead hand" joke somewhere in there.

Does sexual harassment happen as much among non-celebrities as it seems to happen among celebrities? Honestly, I'm kind of shocked by all if this. I thought only rude, coarse, low-life construction worker type men acted like this. How naive I was.

Its not about men but power.....people with power use it to get what they want no matter how inappropriate and illegal...


Also America's obsession with money does not help. It is all about making $....People exploit and take advantage of this sad reality...

unfortunately you get no points for calling out jim jeffries.  he admits to being a sleaze and a horrible person.
