The political career of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s, D-N.Y. — and her 2020 presidential campaign — is centered around her female identity and the #MeToo movement.
But it seems her so-called passion for equality is turning out to be a bunch of baloney.
An insider says she was subjected to unwanted sexual advances and misogyny while working for Gillibrand. She accused one of New York politicians top aides, Abbas Malik – the personal driver and military advisor of Gillibrand — of multiple inappropriate acts.
And according to the 20-something-year old staffer, she was forced to resign because Gillibrand didn’t care.
She wasn’t taken seriously, she said. In her resignation letter, she claims to have felt “devalued” by Gillibrand and her team. This hits on an increasingly common theme among Democratic lawmakers who refuse to practice what they lecture Americans about.
No wonder Democrats believe all Americans are racist, sexist, evil bigots… after all, it seems that everyone they work with is like that!
Politico said the woman resigned due to “how poorly the investigation and post-investigation” by Gillibrand. The woman remains anonymous, fearing backlash as a result of her whistleblowing.
The woman told both the deputy chief of staff and the chief of staff about the incidents and that Malik had even retaliated against her for reporting the sexual harassment. In the letter, the woman writes that the senior staff members did nothing. The senior aides also told the woman that she could be fired at any moment, without reason.
In fact, the resignation letter was sent directly to Gillibrand.But no one chose to say a thing about it
“Your office chose to go against your public chief that women shouldn’t accept sexual harassment in any form and portrayed my experience as a misinterpretation instead of what it actually was: harassment and ultimately, intimidation.”

She said Gillibrand was a fake feminist.
“I trusted and leaned on this statement you made: ‘You need to draw a line in the sand and none of it is close O.K. None of it is acceptable.’”
Gillibrand must now come up with some answers heading into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary if she wants liberal voters to back her campaign.
These new accusations suggest that she’ll protect her and her own by any means necessary, and silence anyone that complains
