In the Me Too era, it seems that everyone, from feminists to Fox News hosts, is commenting on the growing power of an accusation. On Sunday, for instance, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos told ”60 Minutes,” “one falsely accused individual is one too many.”

Although DeVos also observed that one sexual assault is too many, her message reflected the concerns of the so-called Me Too backlash, summed up by President Trump’s recent tweet, “Peoples [sic] lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation.”
