Sexual Assault & the General Public

http://www.prince.org/msg/105/449181

'Sexual harassment is, above all, a manifestation of power relations. women are much more likely to be victims of sexual harassment precisely because they more often than men lack power, are in more vulnerable and insecure positions, lack self confidence, or have been socialized to suffer in silence. In order to understand why women endure the vast majority of sexual harassment, it is important to look at some of the underlying causes of this phenomenon.'

Florida Democratic Party chairman Stephen Bittel resigns over creepiness

Stephen Bittel
CBS Miami

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The chairman of the Florida Democratic Party is stepping down following a report that he makes women feel uncomfortable.

Stephen Bittel said it was "time for him to step aside" in the wake of a Politico report quoting anonymous women who said that Bittel would leer at them, make comments about their appearances or breasts and exhibit other behavior that made them uncomfortable. He also had a breast-shaped stress ball.

The spokesperson for the gubernatorial campaign of Ohio Supreme Court Justice Bill O'Neill resigned on Friday after the judge published a Facebook post bragging about his sexual history.

Chris Clevenger, the spokesman for the campaign, told WSAZ.com said he called O'Neill and stepped down after seeing the controversial post where O'Neill claims to have been "sexually intimate" with more than 50 "very attractive" women.

Sen. Susan Collins: Sexual misconduct allegations against Trump ‘remain very disturbing’

Republican Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday that the sexual misconduct, harassment and assault allegations from more than a dozen women against President Donald Trump “remain very disturbing” as a wave of women continue to come forward with claims against powerful men.

When asked on ABC’s “This Week” about Trump’s claims that his accusers were all lying, the senior senator from Maine said that she did not support Trump in part because of those very allegations against him.

"He did say that [all the women are lying] and President Trump was not my choice for the Republican nominee for president and I did not support him in part because of the way that all of these reports about how he was treating women,” she said.

Trump has repeatedly denied all of the allegations wo...gainst him.

Michigan Rep. John Conyers?!?


http://www.washingtonexam...le/2641326

"Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee and the longest-serving current House member, allegedly settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 after a former employee accused him of firing her for not yielding to his “sexual advances.”

According to affidavits signed by four former staffers, three of which are notarized, Conyers on multiple occasions made unwanted sexual advanced to his female staff, Buzzfeed reported Monday.

The sexual misconduct included asking for sexual favors, caressing and touching, rubbing legs and backs in public, and having his staff contact and transport women they believed were having affairs with Conyers."

Eight women say Charlie Rose sexually harassed them — with nudity, groping and lewd calls

Irin Carmon, Amy Brittain
13 hrs ago

Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.

The women were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the "Charlie Rose" show from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. They ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters. Rose, 75, whose show airs on PBS and Bloomberg TV, also co-hosts "CBS This Morning" and is a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes."

There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.

I am not sure what has happened here, and I understand that all these topics somewhat interrelate but I had originally created my thread in the hope to enable orgers to freely and safely explore the possible causes of sexual harrassment (in particular towards women, since regular reports indicate a significantly higher number of harrassment towards women than men).

However, at some point, this thread was altered without me being consulted or informed. The words 'Political World' was added to the title and the notice: *used for issues raised concerning politicians only* was added above my OP without me having any knowledge of it (other than finding out after seeing it).

I therefore wanted to inform everyone on here what my original intent was when I created the thread.

*mods: please advise if it is still ok to discuss the orginal topic (identifying and explaining patterns of sexual harrassement) on this thread. Thanks*

Hi Cherry - I wondered about the strange title. I started a thread in P&R called Sexual Misconduct Thread - the tide keeps rolling in. It was locked and we were told to post on the Sexual Harassment? thread in GD - which was taken down at the time. Now there are 3 threads on P&R. This one, Sexual harassment (Political World), Sexual Assault and the general public, and Hollywood sexual harassment thread. Whatever happens with this thread, we need a Sexual Misconduct (not harassment or assault) thread in P&R to post on, considering what is happening right now.

Here is the latest on Dream Team USA. So far USA Gymnastics have done nothing except fire Nassar. They have kept silent.

Team USA's Gabby Douglas claims sexual abuse by team doctor

By The Sports Xchange | Nov. 21, 2017 at 10:54 PM

Another member of the US Olympic gymnastics team has come forward with sexual abuse claims against former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.

Gabby Douglas wrote in an Instagram post, "It would be like saying that because of the leotards we wore, it was our fault that we were abused by Larry Nassar. I didn't publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were extremely painful."

Earlier this month, Aly Raisman -- Douglas' teammate on the last two Olympic teams -- came forward alleging that Nassar had abused her. Prior to that, McKayla Maroney shared in an Instagram post that Nassar abused her from when she was 13. Jamie Dantzscher, a bronze medalist from the 2000 Sydney Games, also said Nassar abused her.

"We are all in this together," Raisman tweeted Friday. "If we are going to create change I need all your help."

This has been going on since the beginning of time. It's finally come to a head. Social media has made it possible to swing open up all of the closets with all of the skeletons.

All of these folks never saw it coming. Continued their bad behavior never considering the implications of a connected world where every action is forever documented for all to see.

Overall there is a bright spot. It's the cleansing of the old guard and bringing in the new. Like a forest fire clearing of old growth to make way for the seedlings to sprout. Makes way for a new generation to come in, and that's great.

Old smug rich farts like Jerry Sinefeld who benefitted from political correctness and are now so well off they shrug it off because it cramps their style. I like Jerry but it pisses me off to the highest levels. Now that they have people bending over any of their whims they have no need for any of that. The mentality that if something doesn't affect you, it's not important.

That same sense of entitlement that these sexual harassers have, where they believe that people appreciative of landing a job with someone in like that are taken advantage of. Not saying Sinefeld ever abused anyone in any manner, just that it's that same sense of entitlement and belittlement of those more at risk of mistreatment.

Three CBS employees accuse Charlie Rose of sexual harassment

CBS News has fired "CBS This Morning" co-host Charlie Rose over allegations of sexual misconduct. He had been with the broadcast since its launch in 2012. CBS News president David Rhodes cited "extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior" as he announced the firing.

The first reports centered on Rose's interactions with staff and job seekers at his program that aired on PBS. Now, three CBS employees say Rose's unwanted sexual advances continued after 2011, later than previously reported, during his time at CBS News. We learned about these cases not from the HR department, but from our own investigation of his behavior.

A TMZ video from Monday night showed a defiant Rose.

"Do you want to say anything to those accusers, the people that's accusing you of all these wrongdoings?" the cameraman asked.

"It's not wrongdoings," Rose replied.

That defiance was at odds with an earlier statement in which he said "I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed." Though he added, "I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate."

Former Charlie Rose show producer Rebecca Carroll tells us she witnessed inappropriate behavior, but "there wasn't anybody to talk to", she said. "There wasn't anybody to tell."


disbelief For such a "smart guy", Charlie is just not getting it.

Thanks poppys. Would this 'Sexual Misconduct' thread be for discussing what constitutes innapropriate behaviour (in general)? If so, would you be happy to include the topic that I was originally aiming at in this thread?

Rep. John Conyers accused of sexual misconduct by 2nd woman as ethics committee launches probe

  • By John Parkinson

Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., was accused of sexual misconduct by a second woman earlier this year, as he faces a new ethics investigation after denying a separate report that alleges he sexually harassed a female aide, leading to a reported five-figure payout funded by taxpayers.



On Monday, BuzzFeed published a report that said Conyers' office paid a female aide more than $27,000 as part of a confidentiality agreement to settle a complaint.

In his statement, Conyers, 88, said that his office “resolved the allegations,” though with an “express denial of liability, in order to save all involved from the rigors of protracted litigation.”

“The resolution was not for millions of dollars, but rather for an amount that equated to a reasonable severance payment,” Conyers said.

A second woman accused Conyers of sexual misconduct, outlined in court documents whose details were first published Tuesday by BuzzFeed.


Many politicians have been bailed out of sexual misconduct with tax payer dollars. The entire process is confidential. This HAS to change. We don't know what we are paying to cover up.

Congressman Joe Barton, hit with 'sexting' revelation, bows out of 2018 race

https://www.msn.com/en-us...spartanntp

WASHINGTON – Embattled Texas Congressman Joe Barton announced Thursday that he will not seek reelection in 2018, following recent revelations of a nude photo and sexually suggestive messages that appeared on the Internet.

Barton's decision came as a growing number of Texas Republicans called on him to resign or cancel his reelection plans for a seat he has held since 1985, making him the longest-serving member of the Texas delegation.

In a statement, Barton, 68, made no reference to the "sexting" scandal that has enveloped him since last week.

"As a young Congressman, my slogan was 'listening to you in Texas, working for you in Washington.'" Barton said. "For me that was never just a saying, but a commitment - a way of life. Over the last thirty three years, I have held thousands of public meetings and visited with so many great people in Texas on issues important to them. In Washington, I have voted over 20,000 times on the House Floor to hopefully make life a little better for the people in the 6th District.

"I am very proud of my public record and the many accomplishments of my office. It has been a tremendous honor to represent the 6th District of Texas for over three decades, but now it is time to step aside and let there be a new voice.

"I am announcing today that I will not seek reelection in 2018. To the people of the 6th District, thank you for your support and friendship."

Texas Rep. Blake Farenthold faces more claims of abusive behavior from former aide

ap861352082521.jpg

A third former top aide has accused Texas Rep. Blake Farenthold of crude, abusive behavior, CNN reported Wednesday.

One of the Corpus Christi congressman's former communications directors, Michael Rekola, described a work environment so hostile that he said he required counseling and medical treatment.

He described "screaming fits of rage, slamming fists on desks and castigating aides," CNN reported.

He has offered to provide the House Ethics Comittee with "examples of sexually inappropriate comments" and discuss Farenthold's "emotionally damaging" and "intimidating" behavior.

Rekola said he'd been subjected to lewd comments, including remarks about his fiancee shortly before his marriage. He said he left his job soon after Farenthold made those comments in 2015.

Second woman accuses Nevada congressman of sexual harassment

Not Released (NR)

Nevada’s Rep. Ruben Kihuen is facing allegations of sexual harassment from a second woman who said the Democrat groped her thigh and buttocks, asked what color underwear she was wearing, and repeatedly suggested spending the night at her home, according to a report.

The accuser, who worked as a lobbyist for clients with bills before Kihuen, told the Nevada Independent she was repeatedly harassed over the course of two years.

She was inspired to come forward after his finance director on the 2016 campaign accused him of touching her thighs, hounding her for dates and making unwanted sexual advances.

Ky. lawmaker accused of assault dies in apparent suicide

BBGImiY.img?h=441&w=624&m=6&q=60&o=f&l=f&x=2150&y=1425

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Dan Johnson, a Republican state lawmaker in Kentucky who defiantly denied allegations that he sexually assaulted a teenage girl in the basement of his home, died in an apparent suicide Wednesday night, the county coroner said. He was 57.

Bullitt County Coroner Dave Billings said Johnson died of a single gunshot wound on Greenwell Ford Road in Mount Washington, Kentucky. Billings said Johnson stopped his car at the end of a bridge in a secluded area, then got out and walked to the front of the car. He said an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday morning.

Johnson was elected to the state legislature in 2016, part of a wave of Republican victories that gave the GOP control of the Kentucky House of Representatives for the first time in nearly 100 years. He won his election despite Republican leaders urging him to drop out of the race after local media reported on some of his Facebook posts comparing Barack and Michelle Obama to monkeys.


A lot of weird details in this story.
