Last week the Washington Post reported that Congress is considering passing a law that would allow President Obama or his successor to revoke Bill Cosby’s Medal of Freedom, in light of the multiple allegations of sexual assault being made against him. Previously, Promoting Awareness Victim Empowerment advocated for the use of executive order authority to revoke the medal, with the support of Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.).
Given that Hillary Clinton has stated that “she is with” all victims of sexual assault and that they have the right to be “believed” and “heard,” American Crossroads has two very simple questions:
(1) Does Hillary believe that Bill Cosby’s Medal of Freedom should be revoked?
(2) If elected president, would Hillary wait for Congress to pass a law giving her the power to revoke Cosby’s medal, or would she simply do it by executive order?
