As sexual misconduct allegations rock the country, a candidate for Michigan lawyer normal has pledged by no means to interact in such habits if elected.
“Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting?” Democrat Dana Nessel asks within the new advert. “Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis? I’d so say.”
She then makes a number of promises to her electorate: “I will not sexually harass my staff. And I won’t tolerate it in your workplace either. I won’t walk around in a half-open bathrobe.”
The advert follows allegations of sexual misconduct towards U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., and U.S. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., amongst others.
Conyers, who allegedly used taxpayer cash to settle with an accuser, may not search re-election subsequent yr, Detroit’s WDIV-TV reported.
Nessel, a former assistant prosecutor vying towards Republican state House Speaker Tom Leonard and Democratic state Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker, advised WJBK-TV that she does not suppose the advert crosses a line.
“I think the ad was rather tame when it comes to the news stories that have come out whether they are journalists, whether they’re in Hollywood, or whether they’re political representatives,” she stated. “We’ve heard some pretty lewd stories coming out.”
She added: “I’m constantly hearing, “Well, I such as you, I really like your candidacy, I really like issues that you just say. But we will be able to’t have an all-female price tag,” she stated.
“And my response is always the same: Why?”
