Shocking sex scandal keeps crippling this Trump challenger’s campaign
One Trump challenger’s campaign is on the rocks.
And nobody saw it coming.
That’s because the last Democrat anyone ever expected was just crippled by a shocking sex scandal.
New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s Presidential campaign is taking on water.
She’s polling at zero and is barely raising any money.
And now she just lost her chief of staff because of how she allegedly mishandled sexual harassment allegations against Gillibrand’s most trusted senate aide.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s longtime deputy chief of staff, Anne Bradley, is leaving her Senate office next month, according to a person familiar with her plans.
Bradley has been with Gillibrand since 2007 and had been planning to retire later this year. She moved up her departure after POLITICO detailed an internal sexual harassment investigation Bradley helped lead in 2018, which ended with a young female staffer resigning in protest over how Gillibrand’s office handled the incident and the post-investigation fallout.
Bradley’s exit comes at a critical moment for Gillibrand. The New York Democrat officially announced her candidacy for president Sunday, after a two-month exploratory period, and has scheduled a kickoff speech outside a Trump hotel in New York City on March 24.
A Gillibrand spokesperson declined to comment.
This scandal is especially deadly for Gillibrand.
The entire basis of her campaign is her gender.
Allegations that she looked the other way on a predatory male staffer undercut the entire “feminist” premise of her Presidential bid.
Gillbrand’s campaign already was struggling for political oxygen.
This scandal may be enough to end it.
