Last week I posted a hypo asking about whether a governor admitting a rape should step down

and got creamed by some here who accused me of everything from equating blackface and rape to advancing a hidden agenda to hating women.

This week, my hypo not only seems far less problematic but eerily prescient but

So let me posted two versions of it again with a couple of tweaks and try again to find out where people think these lines should be drawn:

If a politician is accused of but denies raping a woman 15 years ago, would you insist he shouldn't step down
on the basis that the accusation was first published in a right-wing publication, there's no evidence that he has raped any women in the last 15 years, and he has consistently voted for pro-women legislation throughout his political career?

Would your response be different if that politician admitted to the rape but the accusation was first published in a right-wing publication, there's no evidence that he has raped any women in the last 15 years, and he has consistently voted for pro-women legislation throughout his political career?
