On Tuesday evening, the likely Democratic Senate nominee in Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes, gave a speech accusing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of having “yesterday’s view of women.” On her way out she refused to answer questions about her connection to John Arnold, a Democratic state lawmaker, who resigned last year after being accused by female staff members of sexual harassment.
As reported by America's Rising:
It appears that Grimes and Kentucky Democrats are the ones waging a war on women. Grimes refused to call for Arnold’s resignation last fall when he was accused of sexual harassment and then accepted a $250 contribution from him after he stepped down because of the allegations.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Kentucky Legislative Ethics Commission failed to reprimand John Arnold by one vote. Elmer George, who has contributed $5,200 to Grimes’ campaign, made the deciding vote against the reprimand. Another Grimes supporter, Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo, who has played a major role at several campaign events for Grimes, appointed George to the commission late last year.
When she left her speech reporters attempted to ask Grimes about the Ethics Commission decision but she ignored their questions on her way out.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported they contacted Grimes' spokeswoman, "Charley Norton, who said the candidate had to 'get home,' which is less than a mile from where the dinner was held."
