I FIGURED SHE WAS PROTECTING A DEMOCRAT: New York TImes: It Was Daniel Inouye Who Made Sexist Remark To Kirsten Gillibrand. Plus, some history: “With his deep baritone and courtly manner, Mr. Inouye was revered by his colleagues and was a powerhouse in both Hawaii and the Senate, where he was a reliable supporter of women’s rights. But in an all but forgotten chapter of his career, the senator had been accused of sexual misconduct: In 1992, his hairdresser said that Mr. Inouye had forced her to have sex with him. Her accusations exploded into a campaign issue that year, and one Hawaii state senator announced that she had heard from nine other women who said they had been sexually harassed by Mr. Inouye. But the women did not want to go forward with their claims.”

So, he was a typical Senate Democrat, then.

UPDATE: Amy Otto: “They pinned it on a dead Democrat. Convenient.” People sure have gotten cynical.
