The Crucible

The Crucible is a play by Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized story of the Salem witch trials.

Left-leaning Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, but isn't it more than slightly applicable today to a situation in which an anonymous allegation by a woman can derail a politician?

Now I'm no fan of Al Franken, but shouldn't anybody have the right to confront their accuser and get due process along the lines of the 6th Amendment (which embodies old ideas from Anglo-Saxon common law)?

It is a wash anyhow because Franken would be replaced with a leftist, and if removed Moore would be replaced by a conservative.

Should decades-old and often anonymous allegations be enough?

If so, couldn't any guy accuse Liz Warren and she would have to step down too?
