Look what happened to a female Liberal who was running for Congress in Kansas. She has dropped out of the race over a 2005 federal lawsuit in which she was accused of sexually harassing a male employee whom she supervised. Sex scandals have no sexual preference.
Women can be accused and it just happened. Andrea Ramsey, 56, of Leawood, was going to challenge incumbent Republican Kevin Yoder in 2018 in the Kansas City area 3rd District but announced in a Facebook post that she would be ending her campaign Friday.
Ramsey wrote, “Twelve years ago, I eliminated an employee’s position. That man decided to bring a lawsuit against the company (not against me). He named me in the allegations, claiming I fired him because he refused to have sex with me. That is a lie.”
Allegations came back to life after the ‘Kansas City Star’ questioned Ramsey about them.
The National Democratic Party declined to support Ramsey over the lawsuit. That’s okay with me because I don’t care if we have fewer Democrats running.
Ramsey said, “In its rush to claim the high ground in our roiling national conversation about harassment, the Democratic Party has implemented a zero-tolerance standard. For me, that means a vindictive, terminated employee’s false allegations are enough for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to decide not to support our promising campaign. We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process.”
Emily’s List, which is a liberal women’s group, supported and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Ramsey’s campaign, said they supported Ramsey’s decision.
