I don't care for Kirsten and she's not even in my top 10 of candidates best to end this long, national, reality TeeVee show nightmare.
First of all, she's too connected to the Clintons.
Not first but WORST, she called for Al Franken's resignation over a stupid spoof photograph without even calling or waiting for an investigation.

But let me clue you in on something MacDuff and your fellow Orangelings: You're going to be very VERY busy in the next year discrediting each and every one of probably TWENTY candidates. But hey, whatever blows your collective skirts up! :)

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), one of the most outspoken advocates of the #MeToo movement who has made fighting sexual misconduct a centerpiece of her presidential campaign, spent last summer pressing legislators to update Congress’ “broken” system of handling sexual harassment.

At the same time, a mid-20s female aide to Gillibrand resigned in protest over the handling of her sexual harassment complaint by Gillibrand‘s office, and criticized the senator for failing to abide by her own public standards.

In July, the female staffer alleged one of Gillibrand’s closest aides — who was a decade her senior and married — repeatedly made unwelcome advances after the senator had told him he would be promoted to a supervisory role over her. She also said the male aide regularly made crude, misogynistic remarks in the office about his female colleagues and potential female hires.

Less than three weeks after reporting the alleged harassment and subsequently claiming that the man retaliated against her for doing so, the woman told chief of staff Jess Fassler that she was resigning because of the office’s handling of the matter. She did not have another job lined up.

Gillibrand is one of the biggest phonies in politics. She was all over #MeToo. I guess in her case, the emphasis was on the "Me" part.

Why does this matter? We elected a serial adulterer who pays hush money, won't reveal his tax returns, has a long history of stiffing vendors AND mocks the disabled.

Gillibrand's a pretty petty offenses.

Next.

LOL - are you forgetting this happens on both sides?

Former Rep. Blake Farenthold, the disgraced Texas Republican who resigned last month in the aftermath of a sexual harassment settlement, has secured his next paid gig – as a government lobbyist. But even though he’s going to be raking in a reported six-figure salary, Farenthold told ABC News that he has no intention of repaying an $84,000 sexual harassment settlement funded by taxpayers.

Disgraced former Rep. Blake Farenthold gets lobbying job, won’t repay $84K settlement

Remember Trent Franks and Pat Meehan and John Conyer?

Here Are the 7 Congressmen Accused of Sexual Misconduct Since #MeToo

And disgraceful when any man does it regardless of party.
Blake was one creepy MoFo but would have made a solid Trump apologist given half the chance :D

Much like global warming, the politicians who sound the alarm the loudest do the least to live up to the standard the expect from everyone else.

None of them felt emboldened to run for president. And Gillibrand is a particular phony on this. She has put herself in front of the #MeToo issue. Turns out she's no better than anyone else. She's just trying to score points off it.
Grabbing pussies doesn't qualify?
