Sexual Hasrrassment in the General Assembly

Del Ariana Kelly (D-Montgomery) claims that a married legislator grabbed her ass in front of others and says that sexual harassment is ingrained in the culture of the GA, but won't name names.

Any bets on the politicial party of Delegate Grabby? I'm sure if he had an R behind his name she would not be so reluctant to out him.

Female staffers, lobbyists and legislators, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because of fear of reprisal, said sexual harassment is ingrained in the Maryland statehouse’s culture. They say the abuse ranges from groping and sexist comments to belittling and unwanted sexual advances.

Full story here:

And her recent Op-Ed here:

Quote:
The first time a married senior colleague grabbed my rear end, I was shocked. It was my first legislative session, and I was still getting to know people. Two of my male colleagues witnessed this sustained and shameless public groping. I was utterly humiliated. The next morning I went into a female legislator’s office, closed the door and cried.

We talked about reporting the incident but concluded it would publicly embarrass a senior colleague, his allies might rush to his defense and I could be accused of making a big deal out of nothing. If politics is all about relationships, that would not help my career.

Instead, I had a direct conversation with the member and told him, “I look forward to a long productive working relationship with you. Please don’t ever grab my ass again.” Until his retirement, our relationship was always awkward, and I suspect I lost opportunities to work on certain issues as a result. That’s the thing about sexual harassment: Women are never sure exactly how much of their professional potential it limits.

This story is just the tip of the iceberg of my early experiences in Annapolis. As I grew more senior, these experiences became less frequent.

Ugh. There has never been a more indecent exposure.

Sounds like she made a conscious decision that her political aspirations outweighed her self-respect. As a Democrat that put her on the fast track.

If you ask her I am confident she would blame her melt down in latter years on her alleged groping in prior years. He grabbed my ass so I felt the need to expose myself during a tantrum. Hot mess here. She may have had credible complaints, until she ...

Exactly. My sisters would have smacked the crap out of that guy immediately, especially they way she describes it as a prolonged butt groping. How does somebody have zero self respect for herself, and how do people in Bethesda continue to elect this woman?
