I personally intend to wait and see what additional information comes out rather than make a snap decision.

I feel that's a wise and consistent approach that can be widely applied to any breaking story, scandal, incident etc. regardless of which group or individual is in the hot seat.

It's all human psychology. Same way the most outspoken homophobic dude in the room is the main one rubbing one out to men when home alone.
Absolutely^^. One of the things brought up in my Pych classes in college. The mind will seek refuge by projecting what you are guilty of. Dont care for your gay analogy though considering theres nothing illegal about that.

Like Spacey, he would attempt to use that as some sort of defense, contributing to the demonization of the gay community

I think some more will come forward over the time. I doubt he stopped it with one person. He should have come forward weeks ago if not months if he takes responsibility.

Something HUGE is coming down and this is all smoke and noise to provide cover when the you know what hits the fan. Get ready for indecency and mind shattering disgust when the real charges surface. Just don't say its fake news like a good little mindless drone.

Al Franken has released a new statement. It's several paragraphs and he asks for an ethics investigation of himself.

Congratulations on your win! I guess.
