Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 16, 2017

Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Congress, will drop out of the race after the Kansas City Star asked her about accusations in a 2005 lawsuit that she sexually harassed and retaliated against a male subordinate who said he had rejected her advances. Multiple sources with knowledge of the case told The Star that the man reached a settlement with LabOne, the company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources. Court documents show that the man, Gary Funkhouser, and LabOne agreed to dismiss the case permanently after mediation in 2006. Ramsey, a 56-year-old retired business executive from Leawood, was one of the Democratic candidates vying to challenge Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder in 2018 in Kansas' 3rd District.

Emily's List didn't do a good job vetting this woman.

Hey, I wonder if she's related to my favorite actor, Matt Ramsey.

Just as well. She probably would have been the greater of two evils.

She didn't drop out correctly. It looks like she wouldn't have been a good politician anyways.

Perhaps candidates need to stop letting organizations like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) determine if they should run or not. Let the voters have their say. Good candidates being painted as unelectable because of unsubstantiated claims made against them in which they've never been given the opportunity to refute those allegations sets a terrible precedent.

When women start being brought down in this way, it will end the #metoo movement.

It's poetic justice. They have opened Pandora's Box and are now suffering the consequences. I wonder what in hell they thought was gonna happen. I suspect a large number of these democrats especially, though that, "if Bill Clinton could get away with it, so can I."

Shut-up, Kudzu.

#9 - The difference is most progressives are happy to see this happen even if it is a progressive politician. Progressives actually care about draining the swamp, and getting rid of the low lifes that would sexualy harras employees. Whereas conservatives revile seeing there candidates dragged out into the light. It's all party over country for the repubs/cons.

I'll believe in the movement when the molester-in-chief is removed from office.
