Last year, the women in the Vernon Township Assessor’s office bravely came forward because they trusted me to listen to their story and take action to end harassment in their workplace. That’s exactly what I did.

Now, Karen Feldman is forcing them to come forward again by lying about their story in a desperate attempt to win an election. Karen Feldman’s use of these women’s story is not only wrong but sets an incredibly dangerous and reckless precedent of using their story for political gain, and she owes the victims an apology.

Until they receive an apology, I will not be dignifying her campaign by participating in any public events with Karen Feldman. She has now confirmed our worst fears that she will follow the Donald Trump/Brett Kavanaugh playbook of plowing through any woman who threatens her hold on power. I support the women who say #MeToo.
