She's never been a paragon. She's not even well liked among a lot of liberals, starry eyed supporters aside. The fights on the left about her candidacy didn't spring from nowhere.

I've heard very different things from certain segment of "liberals".

Trust no-one, but yourself.

Now Scott Baio is being accused. He took to Facebook Live to dispute those claims.

Steve Wynn will resign from the RNC as a result of his allegations being brought to light.

Also, Cenk Uygur had some controversy that dealt with his alleged sexual misconduct.

What is not mentioned in the post above, is that this woman is a lawyer of the #metoo movement.
Such is irony.

Here is Garcia's response to said allegations.

Therefore, I am voluntarily taking an immediate unpaid leave from my position in the State Assembly, including any accompanying committee assignments, so as not to serve as a distraction or in any way influence the process of this investigation. I implore the Assembly Rules Committee to conduct a thorough and expeditious investigation, and I look forward to getting back to work on behalf of my constituents and for the betterment of California.”

Good.
I've got to admit, if she was half as tanked as the dude says she was, it's probably no wonder she doesn't remember it.

Which doesn't let her off the hook for her behavior, not by a long shot.

Meanwhile...what's the current tally of Domestic Abusers in the Executive Branch again?

Wow. Just ... wow.

If that were true, then I would have expected better from her.

I just hope that this incident doesn't negatively impact the #metoo movement and irreparably ruin the it's reputation.

It's reputation is somewhat ruined already due to quite a lot of people saying that something that had started as an effort to weed out harassers in power, slowly turning into witch hunt, where people could be persecuted without prove for something that they haven't done.

I managed to finally get around to watching baby driver last night, and boy do a lot of Kevin Spacey's scenes in that movie read a lot differently in the wake of his disgrace.
