REPORT: Joe Biden Hires Aide Who Said Being ‘Accused’ of Sexual Harassment Was Disqualifying
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by BREITBART.COM:
Former Vice President Joe Biden hired a “senior adviser” on Wednesday who said in 2017 that no one who has been “accused of sexual harassment or assault” should run for public office.
Karine Jean-Pierre, who was then the chief public affairs officer for left-wing MoveOn.org, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union that even if nothing had been proved against a candidate, the mere accusation of sexual impropriety should be disqualifying.
The article goes on to state the following:
Tapper asked Jean-Pierre to respond to a case in which a female Democratic candidate for Congress in Kansas named Andrea Ramsey dropped out of the race because of past accusations that she had sexually harassed a male subordinate.
The Trump campaign pounced on the announcement, posting the old December 2017 video of Jean-Pierre’s statement, as she declared, “I think if you’re running for office, you can’t have been accused of sexual harassment or assault. And I think that we have to really take that next step here and make sure that doesn’t happen with anyone in office or out of office.”
“Joe Biden’s new senior advisor is a #MeToo hypocrite. @K_JeanPierre said we need to “believe women” and that someone being “accused of sexual harassment or assault” disqualified them from running for office. Now she’s working for Biden, who stands accused of sexual assault,” the Trump campaign tweeted.

We are so proud of our brilliant colleague @K_JeanPierre, who’s taking a leave of absence from MoveOn to join the senior leadership of the Biden campaign. A great sign about the direction of the campaign. Congrats Karine! https://t.co/I54LhlWN42 pic.twitter.com/hFJ5eTy5Os
