Can she be held responsible for something like that? I say yes. Is there precedent for such a position?
I know our individual responsibility friends won't like that. But maybe they have a big stake in the matter. If everyone is truly individually responsible for his or her own actions and no one else's, then each person can do whatever they want and no one can say anything. It's a convenient philosophy.
The problem is it fails to take into account that we are not individual islands whose actions have no affect on others. In a society of people, our actions and our words have an impact upon those around us, and for that we are responsible.
