Gillibrand staffer resigns for way office handled her sexual harassment complaint

People dislike politicians, that’s not a big revelation. But likely the major reason why most of the population can’t stand lawmakers is due to their blatant and rampant hypocrisy.

Don’t tell constituents and voters one thing and then do another. Well, it’s starting to look as if that’s exactly what Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand has done.

Gillibrand is currently catching heat after a female staffer resigned for the way her office handled a sexual harassment complaint.

Gillibrand’s military adviser, Abbas Malik, was accused of sexual harassment of a low level female staffer in 2018. He was not fired at the time.

Responding to the allegations of her office’s failure, Gillibrand said:

“I told this employee at the time that she was loved, that we loved her. I deeply valued her. Which is why we took her allegations immediately, investigated them immediately and did a professional and thorough investigation.  It was taken very seriously from the very beginning.”

Of course, Gillibrand has been a big supporter of the #MeToo movement, often lecturing about the need to listen to victims.
