Bernie Sanders Hypocrisy: Slams Roy Moore, Mum on Clinton, Franken

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) all but ignored sexual misconduct allegations against former President Bill Clinton and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) on Sunday, a marked departure from his stance on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Asked about Clinton, Sanders appeared loathe to discuss the allegations against the Democratic president. “I don’t think that at this moment our goal is to look back 20 years or 30 years. Our goal is to go forward,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

The senator even offered apparent praise for Franken in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations, calling the senator “popular” and saying he does “a good job.”

This is a different tone than Sanders has struck on allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. The senator has called for Moore to “step aside” and calling the charges “horrific.”

He told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes:

Let us hope that he will not be my colleague, or anybody else’s colleague. You know, I think you have heard, Chris, that there are a number of Republicans who are saying that at this particular time, given these horrific charges against Mr. Moore, that it would be appropriate for him to step aside.

From these discrepencies, it appears that Sanders is less concerned with allegations than party affiliation.
