It might be dead in America but he has some troubles in france now with an old case of sexual harassment.

You were a bit pessimistic Mama Cass in your messages, things evolve slowly, it's not perfect yet but rapes are not taken lightly by the police or the society in general anymore. More and more women/children speak out. And politicians or bosses are not as protected as they used to be about sexual or financial scandals.

Overall, this was the first scandal here involving internet, twitter, 24H tv channel news, it was very interesting, very noisy, i'm afraid people will only keep the bad things (french journalists and the American justice just made a big show, the so-called "American puritanism" entering our moral values, the New-York Post covers, the introduction of moral in our political debate, etc) and forget the positive things (the speed of American justice compared to the french one, the debate concerning women/men relationship, the death of old journalism with the too close relationship between politics/journalists/justice, etc). It was definitely an informative cultural clash. Very, very interesting in conclusion.
