GOPer Wonders If Gillibrand Shielding Harassers Because They’re Dems


Republican pollster Frank Luntz on Thursday suggested that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has not named the male members of Congress who have sexually harassed her because they are members of the same party.

GOP consultant Rick Wilson also suggested that Gillibrand has only kept quiet about the names of her harassers because they are Democrats.

Gillibrand recounted multiple instances in which male colleagues have made inappropriate comments about her appearance during a recent interview with People Magazine. She said she has been called “porky,” “fat” and “chubby.”

Since Gillibrand shared the anecdotes, some have cast doubt on her stories and argued that she has a “responsibility” to name the lawmakers that harassed her.
