On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Ron Paul said that sexual harassment in the workplace should be legal and that if women didn’t like it, they should get another job somewhere else:
CHRIS WALLACE: “I want to ask you about one other thing that you wrote back in your book in 1987 about sexual harassment in the workplace.
You wrote this, “Why don’t” — this is about the victims of sexual harassment. “Why don’t they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously, the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the problem?”
You said that sexual harassment should not be a violation of someone’s employment rights?”
RON PAUL: “Well, the whole thing is, is you have to get a better definition of sexual harassment. If it’s just because somebody told the joke and somebody was offended, they don’t have a right to go to the federal government and have a policeman to come in and put penalties on those individuals. I mean, they have to say, well, maybe this is not a very good environment, and they have the right to work there or not there.”
The plethora of wacko bullshit out of this mans mouth should have been enough to ensure he is not POTUS, but if not, this latest round should be a deal breaker for all voters everywhere. Sexual harassment is NOT acceptable in the workplace. Ron Paul is blaming women for being sexually harassed and that should automatically disqualify him for running for high office. Apparently to Ron Paul, it’s a white mans’ world and women only have one place in it.
We are only three days into the new year, and Ron Paul has stepped up his game so much that he gets the coveted first teapublican asshat of the year award.
