Recently, the world has been rocked by numerous stories of sexual misconduct. Many prominent figures have had their lives turned upside down after numerous victims brought their stories to the media.
The allegations have rocked the entire country. Famous figures from Hollywood to Washington D.C. have been affected by the findings. Now, the first female in national politics has ended her campaign for Congress after new allegations against her.
"A female Democrat running for the U.S. House in Kansas plans to drop out of the race Friday after a published report raised questions about a 2005 lawsuit in which a former male employee accused her of making unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate sexual comments," according to the Washington Examiner.
Ramsey has denied the allegations and called the false. However, given the current political climate, the claims are still enough to dash her dreams of winning the upcoming election.
“In its rush to claim the high ground in our roiling national conversation about harassment, the Democratic Party has implemented a zero-tolerance standard,” Ramsey said in a statement to the paper. “For me, that means a vindictive, terminated employee’s false allegations are enough for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee 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.”
So far, Rep. John Conyers, Rep. Trent Franks, and Sen. Al Franken have all resigned due to allegations of sexual misconduct. It will be interesting to see if the climate changes or if more people will fall for their inappropriate actions. Be sure to read our major article about the truth bomb Franklin Graham just dropped.
