Does Due Process apply to accusations of improper sexual conduct?

House Minority Leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, on Due Process for those
accused of improper sexual conduct

Recently elected officials, producers, directors and actors have been accused of improper and even criminal sexual conduct. Some feel due process have nothing to do with that. Others, like House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, now argue the opposite. Recently she was quoted as saying, in an interview, that Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) deserves “due process” in the wake of the sexual harassment allegations that have been leveled against him. These accusations were very specific against Rep Conyers but Rep. Pelosi argued that Rep Conyers was an "icon" and by implication should be given the benefit of doubt. Well, it seems that the due process argument for Rep Conyers also applies to Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore who also is an "icon" in Alabama for many. In Proverbs 18:17 it is written, "The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbor comes and examines him." I hope and pray that the voters of Alabama will take note of the due process guarantees in the Bible and weigh the truth of the accusations in light of daily inconsistencies and bias coming out when the facts are carefully examined. At that point, you should make your choice of who to vote for based on what future is important to you for Alabama and America. Shalom. Rabbi David Schneier
