The announcement shined a light on the alleged abuse of adults, an often overlooked corner of the Catholic Church abuse scandal, and drew parallels to the downfall of Theodore E. McCarrick, a former cardinal and archbishop of Washington, who was expelled from the priesthood last month after the church found him guilty of abusing children and adult seminarians. … [Read more...] about Two Bishops Accused of Sexually Harassing Adults Are Barred From Priestly Duties

On Nov. 7, 2017, state Rep. Faith Winter made a phone call that would change not only her life, but also the course of the upcoming legislative session. From her office at the state Capitol, she dialed a public radio reporter to say that one of her Democratic colleagues sexually harassed her at a party the year prior. Winter had kept the incident private until she learned that other women had accused the same lawmaker, state Rep. Steve Lebsock, of harassment since that night at the bar. Though she was determined to make her allegation public, she told The Colorado Independent in a recent interview, the decision to do so wasn’t easy. “I was very worried I was not going to be believed.” Winter also knew her allegation could jeopardize her bid this November to unseat Sen.

As it turned out during the session, Martinez Humenik would go on to file a harassment complaint of her own and defend her party’s refusal to … [Read more...] about Suburban state Senate district north of Denver becomes #MeToo battleground

The nuanced approach has crashed head on into a major obstacle: President Donald Trump, who at a Tuesday night rally ridiculed Ford’s partial memory of Kavanaugh’s alleged assault, just a week after he suggested that many public accusers are seeking fame and money.Story Continued Below That is not the preferred approach of many prominent Republicans and lawmakers, who understand that many female voters are likely to be outraged by signs that they are dismissing women who say they are victims of sexual assault. White House aides and congressional leadership had hoped Trump would stick with the line of Kavanaugh’s plight as a culture-war story of liberals running amok to smear good men for political gain. “We strongly … [Read more...] about GOP hits ‘weaponization’ of #MeToo, with caution
