Sexual Harassment by Public Officials Is So Wrong

Mayor of San Diego
Dear Reader,
Don't know about you, but I am getting sick and tired of reading in the newspaper about elected officials who sexually harass. (And don't get me started about those elected officials who cheat on their wives or send out social media messages that are sexually explicit!!) 

As I teach my students at CSULB, sexual harassment is not about sex. It is about abuse of power and no matter what political party one is in -- it should be loudly denounced.

The current scandal in San Diego with its newly elected Mayor admitting that "he has a problem" is outrageous. Resign and go work out your problem somewhere else.

The City of Long Beach takes a "zero tolerance" stance and disseminates the following document to each of its employees. 

Thanks for taking time to be involved in City issues.



Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske

P.S. Sexual harassment and inappropriate sexual behavior by public officials seems to be bi-partisan. It is wrong no matter who the official is or what political party they claim.
