Every survivor of sexual assault and harassment deserves justice. But for too long, Manhattan has gone easy on sexual assault and harassment.
Rich and powerful men like Jeffrey Epstein, Harvey Weinstein, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, and others have been let off the hook by prosecutors and by our legal system. Even Robert Hadden— an OB/GYN who assaulted the women he was supposed to HELP—got off easy.
Instead of continuing to go easy on abusers, we need to fully prosecute sexual assault and harassment. We need to overhaul the way the Manhattan District Attorney’s office treats and talks about survivors and abusers.
We need to fight for survivors, not abusers—and that’s what I’ll be doing when I’m elected Manhattan District Attorney.
