Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, a California Democrat has just been exposed as a massive hypocrite in another addition to the #MeToo saga. Garcia, who was in Time Magazine's Person of the Year awards for her role in combatting sexual harassment has been accused of fondling a young male staffer. If true, it seems that she may have already ruined any excuses she might try and use.
Daniel Fierro, a staffer who worked for another assemblyman apparently reported it to his boss but took no further action after the event occured. He said:
“Her hand was there and it slipped down to my butt and she tried to squeeze.”
He describes how she was “clearly inebriated, and as he moved to leave, she tried to grab his crotch.
In a press interview back in November, Garcia said that men who commit sexual harassment could not blame being drunk…Oops, there goes her excuse. She also said:
“I would say that most of the public realizes that our job is based on relationships, and so we are expected to go out there and socialize,” she said. “I think our public also expects us to hold ourselves to a higher standard.”
She may just have written her own political obituary.
