The “MeToo” scythe of sexual harassment allegations that’s cutting down prominent men in politics and entertainment just took a twist that might make some women rethink this whole "to heck with due process" craze. The latest person felled is a former business executive and Democratic candidate for Congress from Kansas. Andrea Ramsey has dropped out of the race after it was revealed that in 2005, her employer had to pay a settlement to a male subordinate who complained that she subjected him to “unwelcome and inappropriate sexual comments and innuendos,” made a sexual advance on him during a business trip, and fired him after he rejected her.
Ramsey claims that the complaint was a false allegation by a vindictive ex-employee, and she blasted the national Democratic Party for trying to take the moral high ground by doing away with the presumption of innocence and believing every allegation without evidence. She said, “We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process.”
Pretty much what I said about Roy Moore, but very few people in either party wanted to hear it. Wonder if they’ll start thinking more seriously about treating every allegation as fact now that it’s destroying the careers and reputations of Democratic women?
