Gillibrand defends office's handling of aide's sexual harassment complaint

Gillibrand said at the time that Franken's alleged conduct had "shocked and disappointed her" and that he should "step aside" because "enough is enough." But, it emerged on Monday that last summer, an aide in her mid-20’s who was working in Gillibrand’s Senate office also apparently decided that enough was enough, as she resigned in protest over the office’s handling of her sexual-harassment complaint against a senior male adviser to Gillibrand. “I have offered my resignation because of how poorly the investigation and post-investigation was handled,” the woman, who resigned less than three weeks after reporting the purported harassment, wrote to Gillibrand in a letter obtained by Politico. Gillibrand, responding to the allegations on Monday, said an appropriate investigation was launched -- and her office later said the male staffer had been fired after other unreported, "deeply disturbing" comments surfaced.

California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris said "we need to speak out against hate." But she said she also believes "there is a critical difference between criticism of policy or political leaders, and anti-Semitism." A statement from Sen.

Mire este video de Kirsten Gillibrand conversando sobre el camino de la campaña con un posible votante sobre la frontera sur: ¿Lo atrapaste? La razón por la que el muro es "tan absurdo", según Gillibrand, es porque está impidiendo que las personas que son indígenas de Estados Unidos vengan aquí. Whut? De acuerdo, primero que nada, las partes del muro que existen en la frontera sur solo están allí para evitar que la gente venga aquí ILEGALMENTE. Las personas que llegan a la frontera siempre pueden ir a los puertos de entrada si desean solicitar asilo. Se puede aplicar desde su país y volar aquí. Es más que idiota sugerir que la frontera impide que la gente venga aquí. El objetivo principal del muro fronterizo es darnos la capacidad de controlar nuestra inmigración, que es lo que trata de hacer casi todos los países del planeta. Y en este argumento de los pueblos indígenas, debo decir que no tengo idea de quiénes son estas personas que son indígenas de esta t
