Top Democrat Joins Weinstein as Major Sex Offender
Minnesota Senator Dan Schoen is the latest power player called out for inappropriate behavior.
Ironically, this same senator made a name for himself bashing Trump. He then asked Republicans to do more to protect victims.
Ironically, multiple women recently stepped forward to accuse Senator Schoen of sexual harassment. Apparently, he did everything from touching women inappropriately to sexting. He even snap-chatted a picture of his ‘little friend’ to one victim.
However, if you were to follow his Twitter feed during the 2016 Election, you would believe such behavior was incomprehensible to the senator.
He admitted to sexual assault, he invoked ISIS when making excuses, you said he was unfit to be president. How is he even worth this praise? https://t.co/kSY6278ioH

I've a feeling this tweet isn't going to age well. 😳

In fact, Schoen clearly held Republicans accountable for not helping the many victims of sexual assault.

Maybe this was one of those subconscious calls for help?
Schoen really wanted the GOP to catch him in the act so he’d stop abusing women himself. Otherwise, his hypocritical statements are truly baffling.
Actually, it’s surprises few to find a Democrat guilty of sexual misconduct. Just look at some of the party leaders, like Joe Biden. The former Vice President, was known for his perverted behavior. For decades, Biden groped women while the media largely ignored his behavior. Yet, Schoen flatly declared his adoration for Biden’s way of life.

Leave it to Leftists to hide in plain sight.
All of DC knows Biden as the creepy “Uncle Joe”. Which is why they fight not be seated near him at DC events.
And let’s not forget former President Bill Clinton; the rapist, harasser, and intern-molester. The Left canonizes this moron to this day.
Now that Harvey Weinstein put sexual harassment in the hot seat, Leftists must confront the issue. Therefore, Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk called for Schoen to resign.
Of course Bakk prefers to sweep this scandal under the rug.
Nevertheless, it won’t be easy considering members of his own party are speaking out against Schoen.
According to the MinnPost:
Among the women to step forward to report their experience with Schoen is Lindsey Port. In August of 2015, Port was a first-time DFL legislative candidate when she went to an event in downtown Minneapolis to mingle with fellow candidates.
Port, a small-business owner, had recently announced her plans to run for a state House seat in the Burnsville area. At the DNC event, she was chatting with other candidates and state legislators about her busy summer knocking on doors — a common campaign activity — when Schoen, then a representative in the House, stepped back to look at her from behind. “‘I can tell when a candidate is doing a good job knocking on doors by checking out their ass,’” Port says Schoen told her. “He said, ‘Yep, looks like you’re doing a good job.’”
The group quickly moved on to other topics, but about 15 minutes later, Port recalled, O’Malley showed up at the event and she made her way over to meet him. Right as she was about to greet O’Malley, Schoen came up from behind her and grabbed her buttocks. According to Port, Schoen then said: “Yep, yep, that’s a good door-knocking ass.”
After the incident, Port says she was initially uncomfortable talking about what happened. “I was new in politics. This was my first time running, or being anything other than a volunteer,” she said. “I already was getting a lot of, ‘Oh, your race is going to be super targeted, you’re in one of the most targeted districts, it will be very high profile, be very careful and make sure everything looks great and you’re doing all the right things.’ I was very concerned that it would become a reason for the party not to target me if I spoke out against him. Or that it would just be, ‘She was the girl who can’t take a joke,’ and that would be the story.”
That’s only one of the disturbing exchanges with Schoen. As the article continues:
Rep. Erin Maye Quade, DFL-Apple Valley, said she also had an unsettling experience with the lawmaker. It was December of 2015, shortly after Jamar Clark was shot and killed by a Minneapolis Police officer, and protesters were occupying the street’s around North Minneapolis’ 4th Precinct police station. Maye Quade, who was working for U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison at the time, had been spending a lot of time at the occupation. On the day when several protesters were shot, Schoen started sending her text messages.
Maye Quade had just become a candidate for the state House, and had never met Schoen, she said, but he nevertheless offered up his advice about how to handle the situation at the 4th Precinct. “Be careful about posting anything about BLM and if you want a police officer’s side of this, feel free to ask,” Maye Quade said Schoen texted.
He then asked her multiple times if she wanted to meet and have a drink and talk about it. Maye Quade said she respectfully declined.
Later that same evening, Schoen texted her again, this time suggesting she should come over, telling her his children weren’t home. She thought the messages were strange but didn’t think much of the invitation until she got another text that was “clearly meant for someone else.” It said, “’I almost got her. Working on her pretty hard, but I almost got her,’” according to Maye Quade. “My blood went cold.”
Unfortunately, there are plenty more stories where that one came from. What seems to be lacking in Congress is a process for reporting such unethical behavior.
