The sexual harassment crisis is threatening the careers of powerful politicians. Gov. Bevin is calling for the resignation of former House Speaker Jeff Hoover and three other Republicans to step down. In Congress, a group of Democratic Senators are calling for Sen. Al Franken to resign. Republican Sen. Jeff Flake made a donation to a Democrat running against a candidate accused of sexual advances to minors. Flake tweeted “Country over party." Sexual harassment and impropriety by the powerful will no longer be tolerated and its bringing about a new political alignment. People in both parties are drawing clear moral boundaries that shouldn't be crossed, certain behavior that isn't welcome inside their camp—even if it costs them political power. And it's refreshing to see principle elevated over political party.
