Democratic Party, Labor Officials Accused of Sexual Harassment Face Internal Investigations

Erik Taylor, the former executive director of the Democratic Party of Orange County and Julio Perez, the executive director of the Orange County Labor Federation, both face internal investigations after several women posted allegations of sexual harassment and abuse against the two men on social media.

As a result of the allegations, Taylor resigned from his position Oct. 19 as the campaign manager for Democratic congressional candidate Phil Janowicz, Janowicz confirmed Monday.

Democratic Party chairwoman Fran Sdao said last week the party would conduct an investigation into the allegations, although she would not mention Taylor by name.

And Perez now also is the subject of an internal investigation, said Orange County Employees Association general manager Jennifer Beuthin on Monday. Beuthin, who is answering media inquiries about the allegations on behalf of the Labor Federation, would not comment on Perez’s current employment status.

“There is no place for sexual assault and harassment in our county, but it exists everywhere, as evidenced by the #metoo movement,” said Gilbert Davila, president of the Labor Federation, in a brief statement issued Friday. “We know that even though we fight against harassment on a daily basis, we are also not immune from it happening in our house.”

As part of the #metoo campaign – a social media campaign aimed at raising awareness of sexual harassment and assault – several women posted accounts on Facebook last week of harassment that allegedly occurred when they were employees or interns at the Democratic Party and Labor Federation.

Those posts also prompted a press release by the chairwoman of the Orange County Young Democrats, Danielle Serbin.

“Specifically, women are speaking out about men in power at the Democratic Party of Orange County and/or the Orange County Labor Federation who have tried to undress young women in the workplace, sent young women pornographic images and memes, and joked about porn with young interns,” the press release, which did not name the men, stated.

Serbin also told the Orange County Register that in 2015 at the Democratic Party headquarters, “one of the men allegedly touched a woman’s thigh, prompting her to flee to safety in a supply closet where he cornered her.”

“In other incidents, the same man allegedly pushed his body against the woman and reached under her skirt and tried to remove her underwear,” the Register reported.

OC Weekly, which first reported the allegations of harassment Oct. 18, also posted images of sexually suggestive messages that were allegedly sent by Taylor to an intern while he still ran the county’s Democratic Party.

Neither Taylor nor Perez returned calls for comment Monday.

    Internal investigation? Imagine what the Democrats would’ve said if Trump announced that his internal staff would investigate the Russian-Trump collusion allegations (that turned out to be a farce).

    The Dems demanded an independent investigator and Mueller was appointed.

    But I guess homegrown scandals only require an “internal investigation”.

    More double standards.

      Please congratulate our Foil Cap Award recipient. Lol.

      Did Mueller tell you he cleared Trump’s campaign. Please let us know if you are at liberty to say. I won’t tell anyone. Lol.

      • LFOldTimer

        Actually if you’ve read the latest Mueller has turned his attention to the Hillary Uranium One scandal and John Podesta and the DNC “leak” to Mr. Assange and Wikileaks. In fact, Mr. Assange said that he can provide PROOF that the Russians did not provide the DNC emails to Wikileaks. But he’s not willing to give up the actual source until charges are dropped or he’s given leniency by the US government. IOW’s he wants a deal – and I don’t blame him. Trump may pardon him at the end of the day.

        • David Resendez

          Congratulations on your award. You were unanimously chosen. Please thank Mr. Mueller for confiding in you. You are a true American Patriot. Lol.

          • LFOldTimer

            Mueller didn’t confide in me. I read it in the national news. It’s public information, David. Google is your friend.

            Julian Assange (the Director of Wikileaks) stated emphatically that the DNC emails provided to Wikileaks did not come from the Russians. That’s old news. He repeated this when he recently met with Rohrabacher. Who would know better than Mr. Assange?

            Just because CNN or the other liberal news networks don’t report the continuing saga of Hillary and Bill’s Uranium One scandal it doesn’t mean it’s not a red hot topic where more damning information is being released daily.

            Hillary and Bill are a Continuing Criminal Enterprise.

            Please take off your blinders and do some research. You’d be amazed at what you’d learn.

          • Audrey Prosser

            We all know we can trust Julian Assange when he says the Russians weren’t involved.

          • LFOldTimer

            If you think about it for a second – Julian Assange would be the ONLY person who would know where the emails came from other than the supplier.

            Assange isn’t Russian. He’s an Aussie. Why would he cover for the Russians?

            Mr. Assange strikes me as a very honest person. He’s never been caught in a lie to my knowledge. The establishment hates him because he exposes their wrongdoings and cover-ups. Those who support transparency are generally fans of Mr. Assange.

            “The U.S. Justice Department is considering filing criminal charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to multiple reports Thursday.

            CNN reported that U.S. officials have prepared charges related to the site’s publication of classified U.S. government documents.

            In a separate report, the Washington Post said Assange and members of the organization could face charges including conspiracy, theft of government documents and violations of the Espionage Act.

            “It is a priority,” U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said of cracking down on leaks at a news conference Thursday.”

            *********************
            “WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange doubled down Thursday on his accusation that the CIA had “lost control” of its arsenal of cyber weapons, as investigators hunted for those responsible for a leak that experts said already is doing major damage to U.S. intelligence gathering.

            Still, it was becoming clear that the disclosure Tuesday by WikiLeaks of nearly 9,000 documents describing the CIA’s cyber tools and methods was a serious setback for American spying, in and of itself, multiple current and former U.S. officials told NBC News.

            “This is bad,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on the damage. “It’s going to make it harder to collect on terrorists, on the Russians, on the Chinese — you name it.”

            President Donald Trump’s spokesman, Sean Spicer, said the president had “grave concern” about national security information being released, and “obviously believes the systems at CIA are outdated and need to be updated.”

            Assange, meanwhile, taunted the CIA, accusing the agency of “a historic act of devastating incompetence to have created such an arsenal and stored it all in one place and not secured it.” Assange raised the specter that some CIA hacking tools were now in the possession of foreign governments or criminals.

            It was Assange who outted all the war crimes in Iraq. Apparently you think it’s okay to kill civilian non-combatants for kicks and those acts should have been covered up to protect George Bush et. al.

Yournobel peace prize winner is responsible for taking the lives of tens or thousands of innocent civilians, to include little children. So take a long look in the mirror, dear. You’re votes for Obama promoted war crimes. You’re complicit whether you acknowledge it or not.

            Assange has damaged our intelligence gathering world-wide. Every country does it, but now thanks to Assange we’re at a disadvantage and YOU think that’s a good thing … curious.

            You strike me as an enemy sympathizer, this is where you’d tell me to “move to Russia or Cuba etc”, but I’m going to tell you to THINK. Put your liberal bashing on hold long enough to REALIZE you’re rooting AGAINST your own country, dolt.

            The Uranium One deal was not Clinton’s to veto or approve

            “Among the ways these accusations stray from the facts is in attributing a power of veto or approval to Secretary Clinton that she simply did not have. Clinton was one of nine cabinet members and department heads that sit on the CFIUS, and the secretary of the treasury is its chairperson. CFIUS members are collectively charged with evaluating the transaction for potential national security issues, then turning their findings over to the president. By law, the committee can’t veto a transaction; only the president can. According to The New York Times, Clinton may not have even directly participated in the Uranium One decision. Then-Assistant Secretary of State Jose Fernandez, whose job it was to represent the State Dept. on CFIUS, said Clinton herself “never intervened” in committee matters.”

            Despite transfer of ownership, the uranium remained in the U.S.

            “A key fact ignored in criticisms of Clinton’s supposed involvement in the deal is that the uranium was not — nor could it be — exported, and remained under the control of U.S.-based subsidiaries of Uranium One, according to a statement by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.”

            Facts are facts, the Uranium One deal has been debunked as in it literally needed approval from 9 different members of CFIUS, but the only person that can veto stuff that comes through their council anyway is the president (and her vote wouldn’t have mattered either way). It is debunked because the uranium still sits within US control and cannot be exported. It is debunked because the majority of the money going to the Clinton Foundation was contributed 3 years before (131m out of the 145m) before she was even SoS.

            “Hillary and Bill HAVE been investigated and there was … NOTHING!!!”

            The House Judiciary just opened an investigation on the Hillary email scandal and the missing 33,000 bleached emails. lol. More to follow!! lol.

            Your denial is a classic MO for a liberal progressive snowflake.

            Ivana and the students of trump ‘University’ to the tune of $25 million!

            An investigation borne of political harassment implied guilt?

            And ALL the Clinton witch hunts weren’t???? LOL!!!
            Benghazi was PURE POLITICAL ASSASSINATION! We even have the GOP on record saying so:

            “Another Republican lawmaker says the House Select Committee on Benghazi is meant to go after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

            Rep. Richard Hanna, R-New York, said Wednesday on New York’s’ WIBX 950, “Sometimes the biggest sin you can commit in D.C. is to tell the truth.”
            “This may not be politically correct, but I think that there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people and an individual, Hillary Clinton,” said Hanna, who is not a member of the committee. “After what Kevin McCarthy said, it’s difficult to accept at least a part of it was not. I think that’s the way Washington works. But you’d like to expect more from a committee that’s spent millions of dollars and tons of time.”

            “Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right?” McCarthy had said. “But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not fought.”

            “Hillary email scandal ”

            Yeah, e-mails, funny you’re not upset about the trump White House using PERSONAL E-MAIL ACCOUNTS FOR GOVT. BUSINESS, why not?

            Oh yeah, you’re a GOP DYED-IN-THE-WOOL HYPOCRITE!!!

            Hey, why so quiet on Mueller going after John Podesta? Can’t ADMIT YOU’RE WRONG, SNOWFLAKE??? Ha, ha, ha, ha, more EGG ON FACE, FOOL.

            “Ivana and the students of trump ‘University’ to the tune of $25 million!”

            Ivana got a divorce settlement from a billionaire, dope. Nothing to do with sexual assault! lol. Are you claiming that Trump sexually assaulted Trump University students too? lol. Why don’t you try staying on topic?

            Again, Lecher Bill Clinton paid Paula Jones $850,000 SPECIFICALLY for her sexual assault legal claim.

            Stop being Bill Clinton’s apologist! lol. It’s people who think like you that enable serial sexual abusers

            “Benghazi was PURE POLITICAL ASSASSINATION!”

            There is documented EVIDENCE in email form that Hillary and her flunkie Susan Rice LIED about Benghazi! They blamed an innocent amateur Hollyweird film maker for the “uprisings” when they KNEW it was a PLANNED TERRORIST ATTACK!

            “Hey, why so quiet on Mueller going after John Podesta?”

            Mueller is going after the PODESTA GROUP. An organization FOUNDED by John Podesta and his brother. In February 2015, Podesta took up the position of chair of Hillary Clinton’s PAC Hillary for America, the official Hillary Clinton 2016 Presidential Campaign. During this same time the Russians paid the PODESTA GROUP to lobby SOS Hillary Clinton $180,000 to seal the Uranium One deal. lol. Connect the dots, Einstein!

            “Sen. Jeff Flake..”

            RINO Flake the Snake announced today that he’s resigning his Senate Seat and will not run for reelection in 2018!!! Why? Because he KNOWS he doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of beating the Trump endorsed GOP senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward!!! LOL! So Flake the Snake is throwing in the towel. Whatever Flake says is meaningless!!!! lol!!! He’s a has-been!!! Trump destroyed him!!!

            Just ask Marla Maples what she got, gullible chump.

            You said “name a trump accuser that he paid off”, you didn’t specify sexual assault and he did PAY OUT $25 MILLION for FRAUD, but I don’t think we’ve heard the last of his accusers.
            And you are VERY, VERY WRONG about the sexual assault claims being 20 years old, most are in the last 10 YEARS with the most recent being from 2013!!!!

            Benghazi was pure made up cr*p, the CIA gave Rice those talking points because they didn’t immediately know all the facts, but I hope you hold trump to the same standard … TWELVE DAYS OF SILENCE !!! COVER-UP!!! LIES!!!! INVESTIGATE!!!
            AAAGGGHHH!!!! LOL, hypocrite.

            “Mueller is going after the PODESTA GROUP”

            You seem to have some COMPREHENSION problems, John Podesta LEFT the Podesta Group 24 YEARS AGO, Tony Podesta is being investigated, two different people.

            Jeff Flake is hardly a RINO, he’s as right-wing as you could get until the trump nuttiness, where anything goes as long as your “dear leader” says it. Face it, as a trump supporter you’re in a cult of personality and what a ‘personality’ a vulgar, childish, ignorant, lazy, lying, vindictive boor.

            You own him and that’s actually the best revenge, watching you gullible chumps twist yourselves into knots trying to defend the creep-in-chief, it is very amusing!

          • LFOldTimer

            “Just ask Marla Maples what she got, gullible chump.”

            That’s because Trump smartened up and protected himself legally in subsequent marriages, dork. lol.

            “And you are VERY, VERY WRONG about the sexual assault claims being 20
            years old, most are in the last 10 YEARS with the most recent being from
            2013!!!!”

            All are unsubstantiated. Zip. No evidence. If someone sexually assaulted me wild horses couldn’t hold me back from reporting it to the police. They waited and only came out of the woodwork as soon as Trump became President. TBut then that’s what political enemies do. lol.

            “Benghazi was pure made up cr*p, the CIA gave Rice those talking points because they didn’t immediately know all the facts….”

            Susan Rice was caught in 3 separate set of lies. The CIA made her do it!!! LOL! LOL! LOL! You should do stand-up!!!! LOL!

            Podesta knew his blood brother was lobbying on behalf of Uranium One and working a deal with his boss, SOS Hillary!!!! Who are you trying to BS?

            “Jeff Flake is hardly a RINO…”

            Next to McCain and Grahamnesty, Flake the Snake is the biggest RINO on Capital Hill. Trump destroyed him. He’s history!!! Now he’s running off with his tail tucked between his legs!!! DEAL WITH IT!!!! LOL!

          • justanon

            They are ALL “unsubstantiated”, it’s always he said-she said. Look at the women coming out of the woodwork at Fox ‘news’ those were all “unsubstantiated” claims that went on for YEARS without anyone ‘believing’ them that’s how POWERFUL MEN HAVE GOTTEN AWAY WITH THAT BEHAVIOR, but we have trump ON TAPE ADMITTING THE BEHAVIOR.

            STOP PROTECTING THE LECHEROUS OLD GEEZER!!!!

            “The CIA made her do it!”

            Don’t believe the Benghazi BS you get on RWNJ sites (like that’ll ever happen, seeing how your such a gullible chump,lol).

            https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/04/02/cia-deputy-benghazi-talking-points/7206921/

            “Today, the Senate Intelligence Committee released the CIA talking points Rice was given. Committee Chairwoman Diane Feinstein read this list out to reporters (via Politico’s Scott Wong) after the hearing today:

            The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the United States embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against United States diplomatic posts in Benghazi and subsequently its annex.

            There are indications extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.

            This assessment may change as additional information is collected and analyzed and as currently available information continues to be evaluated.

            The investigation is ongoing and the United States government is working with Libyan authorities to bring justice to those responsible for the deaths of United States citizens.

            Keep defending trump, keep getting egg on your face, keep believing up-is-down and keep losing any shred of self-respect and decency you had because you prefer to hate and wallow in the dirt with your “dear leader” rather than sober up and ADMIT YOUR MISTAKE.

            You trumpsters are pathetic AND evil.

          • LFOldTimer

            Hillary and Susan Rice lied through their stinking teeth about Benghazi. That’s a DOCUMENTED fact. You just don’t have the capacity to acknowledge the truth.

          • justanon

            That’s RWNJ bullsh*t!

            The Republicans used Benghazi to smear Obama/Hillary you folks DIDN’T care about embassy safety or even the four men who died otherwise you’d be asking THE SAME QUESTIONS ABOUT NIGER. Just this am Brian Kilmeade on Fox was saying “why does the public need to know what happened in Niger?”

            You’re a bunch of filthy hypocrites who’ll politicize anything if you can smear a democrat, but will ignore the very same behaviors and circumstances if they occur under a right-winger.

            You disgust me.

          • LFOldTimer

            The nobel peace prize winner OBAMA put those troops in Niger. Their blood is on his hands.

            I see you changed the topic again from Benghazi to Niger. hah.

            I took you to the mat again.

            You’re too easy.

          • justanon

            Actually, GW Bush originally put troops in Niger.

            I see you were unable to COMPREHEND the FACTS I gave you on Benghazi that PROVE you WRONG. I’ll chalk it up to, too much hatred, too few brain cells.

            You have never shown any capacity to learn or admit a mistake, not unlike your ‘dear leader’, who just today reminded us how “edumacated he is” he be real, real smart, you’re two peas-in-a-pod, lol!!!!

        • justanon

          You’ve got your facts WRONG, again, lol.

          Mueller is investigating Tony Podesta of the Podesta Group for possible violations of FARA in connection with Paul Manafort who was trump’s campaign manager.

          Paul Manafort is the main target of the investigation and his involvement with the pro-Russia Ukrainian party, Party of Regions, and its leader Viktor Yanukovych (he’s expected to be indicted soon).

          This however has NOTHING to do with the Russia-collusion charges or Hillary and her campaign.

          “The Podesta Group was founded by Tony and his brother John, though John — who went on to become Clinton’s campaign chair — is no longer affiliated with the firm and is not part of Mueller’s investigation, NBC News reported.”

            JOHN PODESTA is the co-founder of the Podesta Group – which is under investigation by the FBI, dork.

            The Podesta Group represents (as of 2016) the interests of Russia’s largest financial institution Sberbank of Russia, which controls approximately 30 percent of Russian banking assets.

            As co-founder he’s deep in the stench!!!!
