Cosby was a staple of American culture and Democrats prized his endorsement for decades, before his fall.
Everyone knew Cosby racked up lots of favors with Democrat politicians.
But Bill Cosby helped Hillary Clinton and his latest announcement may prove he has more “chits” than anyone thought.
Bill Cosby helped Democrat after Democrat run for office before he was accused and convicted of rape.
From Jesse Jackson to Al Gore to Hillary Clinton, Bill Cosby’s endorsement carried big clout in Democrat politics.
Cosby even gave a speech and appeared on stage with Hillary on Election Day during her 2000 run for U.S. Senate in New York.
The New York Times reported Cosby told the crowd “This is another joke we are going to play on Hillary, we are going to vote her into office. She wants it, she is going to get it.”
Not many people have likely been intimate enough with Hillary Clinton at any point in her political career that they could make her the butt of a – in hindsight truly shocking – joke that seemingly was a sly reference to the rape allegations that plague Bill Clinton to this day.
Many were shocked when only a few years following Cosby’s conviction at the height of the #MeToo movement, Cosby was released from prison after only serving two years for drugging and raping a Temple University student.
A Pennsylvania court tossed the conviction out after a non-prosecution agreement with prosecutors was brought to the court’s attention.
After claiming his innocence for years and his victory in getting the charges thrown out, Cosby was set free and now he appears to be trying to make a comeback.
Cosby is looking to rebuild himself and get back to the entertainment industry.
Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, told Fox News the actor is working on a number of different projects and “things are happening.”
“He’s working on a number of projects right now, a number of ideas for a TV show that has him on the phone with producers, working with guys every day,” the Cosby spokesman said.
At the height of the #MeToo movement, Democrats were quick to attack Cosby and hold his victims up as champions of their cause, all while continuing to sweep rape and sexual assault allegations against Bill Clinton under the rug.
It’s widely recognized Hillary Clinton took care of the “sweeping up” of accusers during Bill’s political career.
After Bill Cosby was sprung from jail on a technicality, and people in Hollywood are now appearing to take Cosby’s comeback seriously, many are wondering if Hillary is sweeping up for another Bill.
