#MeToo Senator Gillibrand’s Office Excused Muslim Aide’s Sexual Harassment

A good rule of thumb is that the more pious the progressive, the worse the hypocrisy.

And behind every successful glass ceilling breaking Dem running on feminism and fumes, is a creepy male aide.

Senator Kamala Harris had her #MeToo problem. Now it’s Senator Gillibrand’s turn.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), one of the most outspoken advocates of the #MeToo movement who has made fighting sexual misconduct a centerpiece of her presidential campaign, spent last summer pressing legislators to update Congress’ “broken” system of handling sexual harassment.

At the same time, a mid-20s female aide to Gillibrand resigned in protest over the handling of her sexual harassment complaint by Gillibrand‘s office, and criticized the senator for failing to abide by her own public standards.

Lefties advocate for standards precisely so they don’t have to abide by them.

The man in question is Abbas Malik whom Gillibrand had hired as her military advisor and driver. An odd pairing. And who apparently had been quite close to her.

In July, the female staffer alleged one of Gillibrand’s closest aides — who was a decade her senior and married — repeatedly made unwelcome advances after the senator had told him he would be promoted to a supervisory role over her. She also said the male aide regularly made crude, misogynistic remarks in the office about his female colleagues and potential female hires.

Gillibrand’s office apparently responded by covering up the incident and blaming the woman.
