    Generally you would have a point that the case being dismissed would have a bearing. However domestic violence cases are notorious for the victims changing heir mind about talking which lets a guilty person stay free until they kill someone and the police can do something without the victim having to testify. Thankfully this man never went that far, but it also means there wasn't enough investigation to know if he was guilty or not. But I would tend to believe the police officer who saw signs of violence, and it fits with the kind of people Trump surrounds himself with.

    So only 2 of Trump's 3 campaign managers beat women. Come on Donald, you can do better.

    Just stopped by to see the latest trashing of Trump.
    Not surprised.
    Wonder what Juanita Broaddrick thinks about this.

    Funny the party who is all for criminal rehabilitation wants to hold a guy down for life for being accused of something.

    Hillary Clinton's husband is a serial rapist, but that doesn't seem to upset anybody.

    Bill isn't running. Tell me how many sex-related lawsuits Trump has had against him. And he's the candidate. You really want to go there?

    "Accused" is kinda a keyword here.
    I have been accused of many things, most of them untrue.

    Doesn't negate the point about Trump now though does it. But you know - birds of a feather...

    that I have been accused of many things?
    that I have been guilty of some of those?
    that I am innocent of many of those?

    I once was accused by my sister of the decapitation of her Barbies. I denied. Vehemently denied. I was guilty as sin, and my act was in revenge of something she previously did. In my defense, she never used them as she wasn't really interested in Barbies and were given to her as a present.

    I once was accused by my wife of keeping dark secrets from her when I told her we needed to go to some place I couldn't tell her about. I denied with all my strength. I was innocent as I was surprising her with us going to pick up a newborn kitten.

    When it comes to DVs, California can and does prosecute without a victim's cooperation. To assume the dismissal was not on the merits is a gamble you'd lose more than you'd win.

    I'm not assuming that the article clearly states that the charges were dropped because the witness, the wife he was accused of beating, did not show up to court.

    Well one candidates husband likes to molest/rape women. But that's none of my business.

    One candidate likes to do that. But that's none of our business either, right?

    In other news, it appears that Bannon has illegally registered as a voter in Florida.

    As the Guardian reports:

    And? What's the point? Isn't this allowed in politics now? I thought that since Bill Clinton is allowed to abuse women for decades on end that it's ok.

    Or is this an issue because he has only abused 1 woman?

    He's probably just setting up for a former colleaague in Breitbart to write some hype about voter fraud in Florida.
