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.

One of those two former staffers said Malik often called her fat and unattractive to her face and made light of sexual abuse. She recalled one instance in which Malik remarked that a particular woman they were talking about “couldn’t get laid unless she was raped.” The person did not report that behavior at the time but now says she wishes she had.

Two more staffers who worked for Gillibrand said the woman’s claims of Malik’s inappropriate workplace behavior matched their own experiences. They said Malik regularly made misogynistic jokes, frequently appraised what they wore, disparaged the looks of other female staffers and rated the attractiveness of women who came in for interviews.

Gillibrand’s office acknowledged it found evidence that Malik had made unspecified inappropriate comments and revoked his expected promotion, which would have come with a raise. It also moved his desk and gave him a final warning. This was not the first time the senator’s top aides dealt with an allegation of bad behavior by Malik: According to a firsthand witness of an incident in 2015, Malik confronted a fellow aide in the office.

He got in the man’s face, pushed his desk and threatened to “fucking” hurt him, the witness said, describing the confrontation as “violent.”

When I had the courage to speak up about my harasser, I was belittled by her office and treated like an inconvenience,” the woman said of Gillibrand in an interview. “She kept a harasser on her staff until it proved politically untenable for her to do so.”

Jews? Under the bus!
Women? Under the bus!
Blacks? Under the bus!

The Muslims have paid good money to buy the DNC and they deserve a party that looks out for Muslims and only Muslims!

The Koran teaches muslims that muslim women are property.

Infidel women are fair game.

This is on Gillibrand’s plate. She is an enabler. Likely she is abusive herself. How could she have this guy as her driver and gofer for years and not know what he was like? I assessed her as a phony when I first saw her and some of her ridiculous stances and about faces. She is a hollow reed full of BS and someone should get her out of office. Gr-r-r-r.
