This morning, the Los Angeles Times revealed it’s planning to publish complaints from six women against Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra. Other recently accused men include New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush, actor Jeffrey Tambor, and music producer Russell Simmons. The accusations range from rape to inappropriate comments. Many people see a watershed moment here. But could there be a backlash?
