McKenna on KIRO: What can you do if you’re falsely accused?

KIRO 97.3 host Dave Ross asked Rob about the torrent of recent accusations about sexually inappropriate behavior and the high-profile firings that have resulted.

Dave Ross: “I go back to this line in her column where she says, ‘Many men are asking, if I were wrongly accused, who would believe me?’…At least in the cases I’ve heard, it’s hard to believe the man involved didn’t realize he was crossing a line.”

Rob McKenna: “Yeah I think that’s right, and to the question of ‘who would believe me?’ – well, it would depend on the circumstances. The people who have been outed recently – including Matt Lauer, Al Franken, obviously Harvey Weinstein and others – they had a history of doing this. So did Charlie Rose.

“These really highly publicized cases involve people where it wasn’t one incident. It was typically a pattern. And if there’s a pattern of behavior, no one’s going to believe you that every single one of those accusers made it up, or exaggerated it, or is being vindictive.

“That’s what makes Roy Moore’s protestations of innocence so laughable, is that there’s just no way all these women came forward and are making this up. It just isn’t credible.”
