Andrea Ramsey, a Democrat who was going to run for Congress, was forced to drop out of the race because she was accused of sexually harassing a man. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) refused to support Ramsey’s campaign because of the sexual harassment accusation. This is not a joke. This has actually happened.
It gets even better when you read what Ramsey said about this.
“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.”
No one heard Ramsey talk about “careful analysis” when Al Franken was forced to resign.
No one heard Ramsey talk about “nuance” when Garrison Keillor was thrown into a 1984 style memory hole for an accident.
No one heard Ramsey talk about “due process” when Trump was (and still is) being falsely accused of sexual assault or when Emily Lindin said that it would be necessary for innocent men to lose their jobs due to false accusations of sexual assault and harassment to “fight the patriarchy”.
Instead of whining about it, Ramsey could try to take some action. She could support some Republican candidates for Congress or perhaps even run as one herself. Or she could try suing the DCCC. At a minimum the Democrats aren’t applying the same standard to all of their elected representatives. Chuck Schumer has been accused of sexual harassment. Of course, it’s an incredibly obvious false accusation. However, that does not matter. The Democrats should force him to resign since that is the policy of the Democratic party now. Ramsey could claim that she is being discriminated against.
I am certain Ramsey will not do any of that or anything else to actually fight back. Like with mangina Al Franken she will decide that its more important for women that she falls on her sword. I will shed no tears for her even if she’s innocent. Like Franken, she’s getting exactly what she deserves for her refusal to fight.
