Democrat Congresswoman Annie Kuster of New Hampshire claims that she was the victim of sexual misconduct when she was a young Capitol Hill staffer.



She recently told her story to NPR:

I was 23 years old. And a famous heart surgeon – his name was Dr. Christian Barnard – came to the Congress. It was a great honor to be included in a meeting with him. And during the course of that meeting he – his hand reached under my skirt to a place that it shouldn’t have been. And I just froze. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t do anything. I didn’t even have the presence of mind to get up to go to the ladies’ room. I sat there and never told a soul.

And at that point in time, in the 1970s, we didn’t even have the legal concept of sexual harassment as a type of gender discrimination in the workplace. But now or in the last year, I have come forward and told my story and met many, many, many survivors of sexual assault, sexual harassment. And I think what you’re seeing coming out of the #MeToo campaign all across this country is just what a widespread problem this is. I think many people have been waiting a long time, and that it’s our time to stand up and say, no more.

  1. So Annie, if this is true, then why wouldn’t you be screaming to have Conyers & Fraken step down for their disgusting behavior? Oh that’s right, they’re also Democrats. Hard to believe you if you don’t take a stand against these two! I’m a New Hampshiran & this makes me sick. Do something about it or your “me too” movement means NOTHING!!!
