Yeah, Democrats Take MeToo Seriously

Filed under: General — JVW @ 9:56 pm



[guest post by JVW]

Here’s a heartwarming story starring two bona fide California progressives, one of whom has a strong chance of becoming the Democrat nominee for President in 2020:

A longtime top staff member of U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris resigned Wednesday after The Sacramento Bee inquired about a $400,000 harassment and retaliation settlement resulting from his time working for Harris at the California Department of Justice.

Larry Wallace, who served as the director of the Division of Law Enforcement under then-Attorney General Harris, was accused by his former executive assistant in December 2016 of “gender harassment” and other demeaning behavior, including frequently asking her to crawl under his desk to change the paper in his printer.

The lawsuit was filed on Dec. 30, 2016, when Harris was still attorney general but preparing to be sworn in as California’s newly elected Democratic senator. It was settled less than five months later, in May 2017, by Xavier Becerra, who was appointed to replace her as attorney general.

By that time, Wallace had transitioned to work for Harris as a senior advisor in her Sacramento office.

How do you think Senator Harris is going to respond to this development? Will she say that she took her staffer’s word that these charges were untrue? Will she insist that she allowed him to have due process while these allegations were being investigated, because that’s how the law ought to work? Or will she claim that she had no idea any of this was going on?

“We were unaware of this issue and take accusations of harassment extremely seriously. This evening, Mr. Wallace offered his resignation to the senator and she accepted it,” Harris spokeswoman Lily Adams wrote in an email.

Yeah, because no one in the California Attorney General’s office — the office Kamala Harris helmed for six fucking years — ever mentioned to the Senator or to anyone else in her office that a lawsuit had been filed naming Wallace as a harasser about a week before Attorney General Harris was sworn in as California’s newest Senator, and her Senatorial office spent nearly two fucking years in the dark about the fact that one of her staffers had this lawsuit hanging over his head, even as the Senator herself was pompously grilling Brett Kavanaugh over comparatively frivolous charges. Perhaps there’s no inter-office gossip within the malodorous and corrupt Democrat party establishment of the Golden State. Or maybe the real answer is that a politician who had her path to power greased by — ahem, ahem — “dating” a ridiculously corrupt married powerbroker who was twice her age might have a huge blind spot when it comes to entitled progressive men treating young women like transient objects of sexual gratification.

And what of the proud and flamboyant Trump antagonist who replaced Ms. Harris as California Attorney General, the unexceptionable Xavier Becerra? Surely he rose about rank partisanship and waxed indigently against the awful behavior of his fellow Democrat, Mr. Wallace, right? There can be no doubt that he believes all women and was supportive and helpful as Ms. Hartley worked through the legal system in an attempt to be heard and recognized, right?

Becerra, who by then had been appointed to succeed Harris, and two of this deputies said the department took “reasonable steps to prevent and correct workplace harassment” by instituting procedures for harassment and training Hartley on the policy.

Hartley “unreasonably failed to utilize the procedures during the period of time, and after, the alleged harassment or discrimination was occurring,” Becerra wrote. “Had Plaintiff taken reasonable effort to utilize these procedures Plaintiff’s alleged harm, injury or damages would have been avoided, in whole or in part.”

When progressive Democrats aren’t involved, that’s usually called blaming the victim. Regardless of what Mr. Becerra thinks about the deficiencies of Ms. Hartley’s claims, his office settled with her to the tune of $400,000 of taxpayer money.

This is yet another data point in the hypothesis that progressive Democrats don’t really care about sexual harassment all that much, except for as a way to bash their political opponents. They unleashed the wave far too carelessly in the hopes of tripping up Donald Trump, only to watch in horror as it consumed Bill Clinton, Al Franken, John Conyers, Eric Schneiderman, and several of their own allies. Now, despite all of the hashtags, all of the pussy hats, all of the marches, they are acknowledging that they only address it in their own camp when they are absolutely forced to. And where they can not magically make it go away, they simply shrug their shoulders and say that they had no idea it was going on, a lame excuse that they certainly wouldn’t accept from their political adversaries.

Sexual harassment is real, many women (and some men) unfairly suffer from it, and people of good faith need to do what they can to eradicate it from our society. But I’m to the point where I think that only a fool falls for this MeToo garbage, which was always just a left-wing political movement disguised as a social concern.

  1. The rest of the article has some salacious details that indicate that Mr. Wallace is quite the creep.

  2. Maybe Beto has a good path to the Dem nomination after all. In the real world this sort of thing should be a major strike against Kamala Harris, but perhaps she has that intersectionality teflon.

  4. By the way, apologies for the salty language in the post, but I wanted to get across the utter implausibility that Kamala Harris didn’t know that this lawsuit had been filed. There is virtually no way unless she is purposely ignorant, and Senator Harris’s office right now is likely flat-out lying to us.

  5. After the Kavanaugh brain damage involving Ms. Harris, karma.

    Paul Montagu (6a98e9)

  6. It’s my considered judgment that if Kamala Harris has any feeling about this, besides how it affects her politically, they are that “she had to go through it so why not this b!tch”. Soul of an insect.

  11. “They unleashed the wave far too carelessly in the hopes of tripping up Donald Trump, only to watch in horror as it consumed Bill Clinton, Al Franken, John Conyers, Eric Schneiderman, and several of their own allies.

    Neil DeGrabass Tyson is in the middle of a tussle right now, if you read his excuses and his horror at the lack of due process (for himself, not Kavanaugh), it’s illuminating.

    “The trend persists, and without any apparent improvements, according to Carson. She notes that Tyson’s apology shares some noticeable qualities with its antecedents. Like CK and Batali, Carson says, Tyson finds opportunities to tout his achievements. He talks about his “professional history with the demotion of Pluto” when addressing the groping allegation against him, and mentions the “grueling adventure-marathon” that was finishing astrophysics graduate school. And then he uses these successes, Carson adds, to tear down his alleged victims, whom he seemingly blames for his alleged indiscretions.”

  28. Guys — the idea that every single bit of everything was a clever Dem ploy sounds great, until you run into the reality of the number of Hollywood and media figures who have been destroyed in this. I don’t think a genuine political ploy brings down Harvey Weinstein and Moonves and NBC. At the very least, you have to factor in Ronan Farrow’s revenge mission into all this.

    I agree the Dems have been trying to tamp things down, ever since Al Franken got caught in the mess, and I find it significant that we have one one major Democrat (the NY Attorney General) suffer major consequences since Franken. But I’m not sure that lasts. Events, dear boy, have a way with them, despite the best efforts of those who think they control them.

Usually only done to males as removal of the pants, the traditional male garment, is a symbolic emasculation.

  42. Democrats don’t have to outrun the bear, they have to outrun Republicans, and they seem to be doing that.

    How important Me Too is varies from person to person. Me Too purists such as Rose Mcgowan, may find this a terrible sin and refuse to support the Democrats. The reality of the situation is that Me Too voters don’t get to choose between a Democrat and perfect candidate. They get to choose between a Democrat and a Republican.

    Democrats are clearly cleaning their house, and need to do a better job of it! They should start by exiling the Clintons. But that’s just my opinion.
    Republicans remain the party of “Grab them by their Pu$$y” who nominated and stood behind Roy Moore. The best they can do is point out the Dems aren’t perfect.

    I will disagree. What epitomizes Hollywood culture to me is the entitled pretty face that makes bold statements supporting lefty politics everywhere because that’s what it takes to get ahead, and thinking themselves important and brave. Rose McGowan — I can’t vouch for her personal character (other than she did starlet type nude scenes). But she did take stands that were risky. Unlike Stormy Daniels, she did her thing without making it seem like a marketing opportunity.

    And helping take out Harvey Weinstein IS a public service.

    lany (650950)

  90. about the fact that one of her staffers had this lawsuit hanging over his head [for two years]

    Actually it hung over his head only from Dec. 30, 2016 until May 16, 2017, a period of four and a half months.

    It was when the Sacramento Bee recently found out about the $400,000 settlement and asked about it, that he resigned from his in Senator Kamala Harris’s Sacramento office. That was yesterday. [December 5, 2016, during George Herbert Walker Bush’s funeral ceremonies.]

    When something becomes news, Democrats quickly resign, or are pushed to resign; otherwise they keep it quiet. So it is never current news and the story does not get legs

    The May 2017 settlement included a non-disclosure agreement, although apparently it wasn’t sealed, plus a promise not to seek employment with the California Department of Justice again. The job with Senator Harris sounds like she was protecting him, or that he was very useful politically.

    Sammy Finkelman (102c75)

  91. This is what happened to her:

    According to the lawsuit, Wallace placed his printer on the floor underneath his desk and ordered Hartley to replace the paper or ink on a daily basis. When she asked to move the printer to another location so she would not have to crawl under his desk in dresses and skirts, the lawsuit states, Wallace refused. Wallace frequently asked Hartley to put paper in the printer while he was sitting at his desk or in front of other male executives from the division, according to the lawsuit.

    She also said he toook away her legitimate responsibilties and had her run personal errands, including washing his car, doing maintenence on his car and booking flights

    When she would return from these assignments, the lawsuit states, “co-workers would make hostile comments to her including, ‘Are you walking the walk of shame?’”

    This sounds like it was retaliation. When she complained, she got more retaliation. Evidently, they were trying to fire her for cause.

    Finally, they transferred her on December 23, 2014, two years before she sued.

    But she claimed that her stress prevented her from finding another job for outside the department and that she took two promotional tests and scored 95 but was not considered for the jobs.

    She says she started getting panic attacks and depression, and then got a pinched nerve in her arm in March 2016, had surgery in September 2016, and finally filed a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

    The Sacramento Bee says she sued two months later (which would be in November, not December) and they were keeping her on medical leave instead of accomodating her. Then in December she filed a lawsuit. (which evidentaly means something different than suing)

  93. ny contention is that #metoo, was a torpedo, they launched from the konevalev, and it’s basically locked on to them, that is the reality, now the narrative is something different,

  94. Actually it hung over his head only from Dec. 30, 2016 until May 16, 2017, a period of four and a half months.

    Yeah, I was a bit careless in my construction there. What I meant to imply is even after the lawsuit was settled Wallace should have had a sense of foreboding that the settlement would eventually come to light, as should have Sen. Harris. Of course, since they are both arrogant Democrats who believe that the rules don’t apply to them, they just kept soldering through. I wonder if this Wallace guy really did any worthwhile work in the Senator’s office, or if he was just a political stooge collecting a paycheck.

  97. Can a lawyer like Avenatti also sign a client like Stormy to a representation contract similar to what an agent would sign? In other words, could Avenatti be slated to receive 15-20% on any speaking, book, or film fees due to Stormy regarding this contretemps with Trump? Or is it against the rules to mix legal representation with agency representation?

    Most likely he could but, at the very least, Stormy should be represented by another lawyer for that contract with him. Not just be told that she should have another lawyer look it over, but actually have another lawyer look it over, and Avenatti should not consider the deal done unless she does.

    Their contract right now is that Stormy paid him $100 cash as a retainer and that’s all he gets from her pocket. All his fees and costs are to be paid from legal defense-fund fundraising appeals he set up for her.

  98. Personally, I wouldn’t have Stormy as a client if she was heiress to a goldmine, even if I was not a germophobe. She turned against her former lawyer who blackmailed Cohen for her, and for a while she turned against Avenatti saying she never authorized him to file the defamation suit against Trump that she lost.

    “Michael, dude, b!tch be a ho, bro! Git away from her!” Like that.

  110. It’s a colloquial thing, mostly in the Cleveland area.

  111. Which? I thought the nasal was N E Ohio. I’ve heard drawls as north as little Detroit aka Toledo, and Columbus gets all the dialects.
