    A North Dakota state representative’s harassment was so constant, GOP colleague says, she moved her desk across the room

    Whenever North Dakota state Rep. Luke Simons walked near Rep. Emily O’Brien, his Republican colleague pretended to talk on the phone to avoid him. But that didn’t stop Simons from repeatedly making inappropriate comments about her clothes and personal life, she said.


    Reporting his unprofessional behavior to the House leadership didn’t help either, she said, nor did ceasing to wear a dress that frequently drew his attention. Finally, O’Brien, who was pregnant, had to ask for a new seat as far away as possible from Simons, she said in a statement.

    “My colleagues helped me relocate to a desk further away from him under the pretense that my pregnancy required closer proximity to a restroom rather than addressing his harassing behavior,” O’Brien said on Thursday. “Mine is just one of many instances that were handled by avoiding the real issue.”.....

    ABM makes his views on women clear, if they weren't already, by saying harassment accusations are crapola.

    To be fair, I don't think was what he was implying in his title. I think he was speaking to the problem at hand of all these gov officials finding themselves in deep shit because of their deeds.

    I suppose it would help if he was more direct

    Apparently, looking like a creep is in vogue in Texas because Ted Cruz is still their senator. Hard for me to recall a dude that looks more of a creep than Cruz.

    It seems pretty obvious this is him taking a shot at Democrats and their sexual misconduct. I don't think this has anything to do with him making light of the accusation.

    Whoops. I misread the article. I saw that the woman was a Republican. Well then I have no idea why ABM feels the need to post this. :dunno:

    Presumably to answer Craig's challenge to post threads about Republicans committing sexual misconduct.

    Now, the next challenge for ABM is to stop voting for them.

    You can lead a snake to a nice fatty rat to eat, but don’t be surprised if the snake would rather just bite you.

    Thank you. Shoot, I thought I was rather clear with the get your house in order comment as this involved members of the, uhm, House. But I'll continue to attempt to be more direct in future postings.

    To steal a lyric, it's my party and I'll vote how I want to.
