We need to make the world safe from predators and promise women that we will protect them an listen to them when they come forward.
In a report published on Friday by HuffPost, it was revealed that a Clinton campaign worker named Lilian Adams and Zoey Jordan Salsbury, who worked for the Sanders primary campaign were harassed by fellow campaign workers while campaigning for their respective candidates. It was also reported that the campaigns failed to address the claims properly.
Lilian Adams who worked as an intern in October 2015 at the Clinton campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters, experienced harassment from another campaign worker after she was relocated to Colorado. She said the harassment started out as homophobic remarks related to her bisexuality and escalated into intimidation.
“He made multiple comments about my body, told people we were dating, would constantly try to get me to drink (I was 19), try to force me into situations where we were alone, encouraged me not to wear bras, etc.,” Adams told Huffington Post.
Her abuser was eventually fired months after Adams first complained to superiors. However, few months after, Adams discovered that the campaign had rehired him — just in another state.
Adams said: “You have a lot of young passionate people who want to help change the world through Democratic politics. Older Democratic operatives see this passion and exploit it, putting us in an extremely stressful and unhealthy work environment.”
Even though Clinton made the fair-and-equal treatment of women a central part of her campaign, she failed to protect women in reality.
Zoey Jordan Salsbury, who worked as a volunteer as president of American University Students for Bernie, claimed that college-aged intern in Sanders’s campaign sexually harassed her. She said that he made sexual advances toward, but the campaign had no structure to deal with issues among volunteers. She was 18 at the time of the alleged harassment.
She said she was contacted by a Sanders campaign lawyer this week, but the conversation made her uncomfortable, treating her as if she was a “roadblock” to a possible 2020 run for the Vermont socialist.
“It firmly felt like the kind of call you make when you’re trying to feel out if someone has the interest and/or standing to bring a lawsuit,” she said.
Salsbury’s friend Colin Moir, who is a fellow member of the American University group confirmed her claims.
Moir said: “He had been harassing her sexually.” He added that Salsbury “was not able to speak to somebody higher up and report it.”
Now that the “Russia collusion” scheme has backfired on them, they intended to go this “sexual harassment” route with the end goal being to get to Trump based on past comments and innuendo, etc.
But, just like the Russia collusion thing, the more they go after Trump (and now, Roy Moore) all they have succeeded in doing is proving THEIR OWN GUILT and getting themselves entangled in their own snares.
Tell me there’s no God…and tell me He doesn’t have a sense of irony.
