Dim candidate for FL Governor asked to drop out of race after assault allegations
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/...tions.html

Quote:Jeff Greene, vying for the Democratic nomination for governor in Florida, is facing calls to drop out of the race after old allegations of assault have surfaced.

Greene was accused by a cocktail waitress at his West Palm Beach resort of having “smacked her on the arm” to get her attention to turn down the music in 2012, according to a police report obtained by WFOR-TV on Thursday.

According to the police report, the waitress, who was 24 at the time, contacted law enforcement a few weeks after the alleged incident because she wanted documentation that it happened. She said she didn’t believe that Greene intended to hurt her, and she did not want to prosecute. She did, however, resign her job, according to the police report.

Florida’s National Organization for Women (NOW) chapter has called on Greene to drop out of the race, citing the recent #MeToo movement, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

“This type of assault is rooted in power imbalance, and so it’s unfortunately not surprising that a billionaire like Jeff Greene victimized a female employee,” Florida NOW President Terry Sanders said in a statement. “It was incredibly brave of her to report the assault, and we stand with her.”


Quote:Campaign spokeswoman Claire VanSusteren also accused Sanders of having “chose to play politics with the critically important #MeToo movement.” She said Sanders’ response to the allegations was just “tit for tat” because she didn’t like Greene’s campaign ads attacking Democratic opponent and former Rep. Gwen Graham.

Quote:Labor organization Unite Here criticized the Greene campaign’s response to the allegations.

“Shocking. Not only because [Greene] behaved in a way that convinced a woman she should tell the police and quit working for him – but because his campaign brushed it off saying ‘this is simply a case of an employee having a bad day,’” it said on Twitter.

“Most women don’t involve the police because they’re ‘having a bad day.’ Most workers don’t resign from their jobs because they’re ‘having a bad day,’” it said. “It would be a shame if that’s how [Greene] thinks about people he wants [to] vote for him.”

Seriously... What the hell? Did it leave a bruise? I mean I call BS on this. I don't care about party affiliation. This is silly.

Yeah, even I think that it is a bit weak.

Which tells me that he did something a bit more than that or it is a cash grab by a Gloria Allred wannabee.

Either way, I get a kick out of the fact it puts the Democrats on the defensive over rules that not only they created, but for the fact that they are more incensed that they are expected (by some) to follow those rules....

This is ridiculous. IMO, he shouldn't drop out over something like that.

We have, as a culture, become stupidly ridiculous.

Exactly. Smacked her on the arm and it was soooo traumatic she waited several weeks to contact the PO-PO. Oh, the horror of it all.

But it is rather chuckle-worthy to see the left eat its own. New rules, y’all wrote em!

The left will not enjoy living under the rules they have created.
