Kansas Dem Andrea Ramsey, accused of sexual harassment, will drop out of U.S. House race

Article here. Excerpt:

'Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Congress, will drop out of the race after the Kansas City Star asked her about accusations in a 2005 lawsuit that she sexually harassed and retaliated against a male subordinate who said he had rejected her advances.

Multiple sources with knowledge of the case told The Star that the man reached a settlement with LabOne, the company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources. Court documents show that the man, Gary Funkhouser, and LabOne agreed to dismiss the case permanently after mediation in 2006.

Ramsey, a 56-year-old retired business executive from Leawood, was one of the Democratic candidates vying to challenge Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder in 2018 in Kansas’ 3rd District.

She was running with the endorsement of Emily’s List, a liberal women’s group that has raised more than a half-million dollars to help female candidates who support abortion rights.'

A token sacrifice

Don't believe it. They will sacrifice a few small-potatoes female Democrats to make it look good, but the goal is to reduce male Democrat politician headcount and replace same with females for no other reason than their gender.

Some people think this is merely political correctness/chivalry/a few feminists run amok. Or maybe it's a few opportunists taking advantage. It isn't. It's a political coup that is based not on one political philosophy camp v. another within a party (eg: the Tea Party Republicans vs. the rest of the GOP), but one gender v. another. The gender being assailed still seems to think this is about scrupulous morality or a sudden change in standards that is being applied post-facto. It isn't. It's a naked gender feminist/4th wave feminist power-grab.

HRC has not taken her eyes off the prize: the Oval Office. If she can't run in 2020 because of health or something else, you can be quite sure a proxy will run instead. I'm betting Kirsten Gillibrand is the most likely protege in terms of getting HRC's blessing/endorsement. If perchance Ms. G wins 2020, all bets are off. The Great Purge will begin in earnest throughout the federal government, possibly pushed through the states. What men are left in the Dem. Party will be eliminated or a few kept as tokens. That is how this unfolds... unless something happens to stop them.

Normally as you all know I am slow to make predictions. I balk quite readily at predicting 2030, 2050, 2100, though I can see where trends may lead. The farther out the time is, the harder it is to predict. But 2017-2020... with what we're seeing now... I feel safe in predicting the outcomes should someone like HRC or KG become POTUS. And it won't be pretty... not because they are women in the Oval Office but because of the ideology they will take into it.

Exactly, Matt

" It's a naked gender feminist/4th wave feminist power-grab."
