Kamala Harris was once a champion of the #MeToo movement.
Six women have accused Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.
At least one of Cuomo’s alleged victims says he assaulted her.
The vice president has remained silent.
(NewsReady.com) – When Kamala Harris was a senator, she was considered a supporter of the #MeToo movement. Now that she’s in the White House, it seems as though that isn’t as important to her as it once was. Now, she’s facing criticism for her refusal to comment on a massive sexual harassment scandal.
Silence Is Deafening
On Wednesday, March 10, Harris spoke to the press after the House of Representatives passed the $1.9-trillion stimulus package. As the vice president was leaving the room, a reporter asked her about the scandal surrounding New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D). She didn’t respond as she was walking away, which is not unusual. Politicians usually don’t turn around to answer questions at that point.
However, the incident did once again highlight the fact that Harris still has not said anything about the scandal. This is especially notable considering her past.
During Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings in 2018, Harris was extremely nasty to the judge. A woman accused him of sexual assault decades previously and the then-senator made it clear she believed the allegations without a shred of evidence. She later called for his impeachment.
A Double Standard
Clearly, Harris is proving herself to be a hypocrite. She had no problem speaking out against Kavanaugh, but has said nothing about Cuomo. How many women have to come forward before she decides the allegations are worthy of her time?
Sadly, it’s not surprising. The Democratic Party loves to paint itself as the party of women, but when push comes to shove, they only seem to care about holding on to power.
