Democrats can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to their rank and file politicians getting busted for sexually harassing/assaulting women.
First there was Bill Clinton, then Anthony Weiner, and now Rep. John Conyers and Senator Al Franken-all accused, or have admitted of doing a dirty deed to women.
While this this practice of not being able to keep it in their pants appears to occur with national Democratic political figures, the local guys are also being busted doing the same things.
With that said, let’s stay with the federal guys, their stories seem to be juicier, and are higher profile.
Enter Rafael Velasquez, a Democratic congressional candidate in Miami, who has been accused by two women of unsolicited sexual naughtiness, as well as by another woman claims he exposed himself to.
The victim/opponent is Commissioner Kristen Rosen Gonzalez, who is challenging Velasquez in a primary congressional race, filed a police report detailing the incident in which Velasquez sexually assaulted her.
“She (Gonzalez) said that after the pair had dinner at Cafe Avanti the night of Oct. 8, Velasquez exposed himself while she was driving them back to his car which was parked at her house.
“C’mon you know you want this. You know you want to touch it,” Velasquez said, according to the complaint.
Velasquez then grabbed Rosen Gonzalez’s right hand and tried to pull it away from the steering wheel and put it on his erect penis, the report says.
Despite Rosen Gonzalez screaming at him to “put it away” and telling him to stop, he grabbed her hand several more times, according to her complaint.
Velasquez vehemently denied all her accusations and called the complaint “baseless.” He said he was considering filing a defamation suit against Rosen Gonzalez after the Nov. 7 election.”-Miami Herald
Of course Rafi is denying these allegations, wouldn’t anyone who pulls a Pee Wee Herman against someone?
Now as his national party leaders have backed their support away, it seems as if other elected Democrats and candidates didn’t get the memo that Velasquez is toxic.
Democrats must be asking themselves, “what the heck
were two elected officials thinking when they posed for a photo with convicted felon, accused sexual harasser, and disgraced former candidate, Rafael Velasquez at a Democratic Party event last week?
Just for fun, here is the snapshot of the three amigos “crossing paths” at the fundraiser. His “liberal snowflake” buddies are Nick Duran and David Richardson.
