:lol:

Good luck finding one of those anymore. They're long gone. The Donks are full-on globalist identity politicians. Just as bad, they're upper class self-appointed metro aristocracy who identify more with foreign illegals, their imported votes to retain power, than the rest of the country.

What goes around, comes around...

Quote:
A California state assemblywoman who rose to national prominence as a campaigner against sexual assault is now herself accused of misconduct.

The state legislature is investigating Democrat Cristina Garcia, who featured in a Time magazine profile of #MeToo victims last year.

Ms Garcia is accused of groping another lawmaker's male aide after an annual legislative softball game in 2014.

She says she has "zero recollection of engaging in inappropriate behaviour".

In a statement, the influential Los Angeles-area lawmaker added that "such behaviour is inconsistent with my values".

"Every complaint about sexual harassment should be taken seriously and I will participate fully in any investigation that takes place," said Ms Garcia, who was elected in 2012 and chairs the Legislative Women's Caucus and the Natural Resources Committee.

The accusation comes from Daniel Fierro, who said a drunken Ms Garcia cornered him in the team dugout when he was 25 years old.

He said Ms Garcia stroked his back, squeezed his buttocks and attempted to grab his crotch.

Mr Fierro told Politico he did not originally report the incident.

He is not the only man accusing Ms Garcia of unwanted sexual advances.

Another accuser, whom Politico described as a prominent lobbyist at California's state capital, claims the lawmaker tried to fondle him at a fundraiser last year.

The man, who wished to remain anonymous because he represents a major industry association, said Ms Garcia had leaned in close enough to him that he could smell alcohol on her breath.

She whispered that she had "set a goal" for herself to have sex with him and used a vulgarity, he said.

The accuser said he stopped Ms Garcia from grabbing his genitals, and told her "that ain't gonna happen".

The claims come months after the lawmaker told the New York Times she had experienced sexual harassment.

"Multiple people have grabbed my butt and grabbed my breasts," she said about alleged incidents in the state capital of Sacramento.

"We're talking about senior lobbyists and lawmakers."

Her story later featured in Time magazine's issue honouring "silence breakers".

Both Mr Fierro and the lobbyist said Ms Garcia was heavily inebriated at the time of the alleged assaults.

In a November interview with the Associated Press news agency about alcohol at political fundraisers, Ms Garcia said that blaming drink is not an acceptable excuse for inappropriate sexual behaviour.

"I would say that most of the public realises that our job is based on relationships, and so we are expected to go out there and socialise," she said.

"I think our public also expects us to hold ourselves to a higher standard."

Oh THAT'S what "socialize" means. It means drink heavily and grab the crotch of the opposite sex. Pretty fun I imagine. I should socialize more.

In Finland this #meetoo movement has demanded to remove Aino painting form the Finnish National Museum, Ateneum.

Image

The painting is based on Finnish national epic Kalevala and painted by Akseli Gallen-Kallela, our national icon.

The museum director, Susanna Pettersson categorically declares that the painting stays on the wall.

So it goes in Finland.

PS. We have our mixed sauna too. How about you?

Poor Hylas, he is in big trouble very soon. Unless he is a super man.

#meetoo.

The real reason why Brendan Fraser's movie career went down the shitter comes out...

Quote:
The actor Brendan Fraser has said he is "still frightened" to this day, after being sexually assaulted in 2003 by Philip Berk, former head of the organisation behind the Golden Globe film awards.

The 49-year-old became a household name with in the Nineties with starring roles in blockbusters such as The Mummy and George of the Jungle, before slipping into obscurity.

In a new interview with GQ Magazine, he claims his career "withered on the vine" after he was groped by Berk, a former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which administers the Golden Globes.

The actor said he was left "miserable", "depressed" and "reclusive" after Berk groped his buttocks following a lunch hosted by the HFPA at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and speculated that the incident could have led to him being blacklisted.

Describing the alleged assault, Fraser said: "His left hand reaches around, grabs my ass cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around." The actor said that, overcome with panic, he actually had to remove Berk's hand himself. "I felt ill," he said. "I felt like a little kid. I felt like there was a ball in my throat. I thought I was going to cry... In my mind, at least, something had been taken away from me.”

Berk, who is still an HFPA member, has previously dismissed the incident as a joke his 2014 memoir. Berk has rejected Fraser's version of events, calling it "a complete fabrication" in an email statement given to GQ. Berk added: “His career declined through no fault of ours.”

Berk wrote Fraser a letter of apology shortly after the incident, but told GQ that the letter “admitted no wrongdoing". Fraser has said the HFPA promised him he Berk would never be allowed into the same room as him again after the incident, a claim Berk has denied. The HFPA has declined to comment on the story.

Fraser said he was inspired to speak about it now after seeing film stars including Rose McGowan and Mira Sorvino accuse disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault.

"I know Rose, I know Ashley [Judd], I know Mira – I've worked with them. I call them friends in my mind," Fraser said. "I watched this wonderful movement, these people with the courage to say what I didn't have the courage to say."

Since the publication of Fraser's GQ interview, Videodrome actor James Woods has accused Berk of "blacklisting" him, on the basis of his political leanings.

"I, too, was blacklisted by that individual at #HFPA after nine Golden Globe nominations,” Woods, a supporter of the Republican party, wrote on Twitter. “During a press junket with HFPA, he asked if I would support Hillary Clinton if she ever ran for president. Never nominated again.” The HFPA has not commented on Woods's claim.

"Taint" massage. :lol:

The perp just resigned. Sounds guilty to me. Fraser was a charismatic guy. There was no market reason for his career to end. Woods is a fantastic actor. His claim is also credible.

The GQ piece on Fraser is long, but worth the read:
