With the recent flood of sexual harassment scandals all across the nation, it has become increasingly clear that many men in power, likely more so than the average person, tend to think that power entitles them to act inappropriately towards women. This is all the more disturbing when news breaks about an elected official engaging in this kind of behavior, as it reflects poorly on our country and raises questions about the quality of leadership we have today. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert sexual harassment attorney at 617-787-3700.
Unfortunately, sexual harassment claims have appeared in just about every level of our political system, with one of the more recent examples being former Judge Alex Kosinski, who was the subject of numerous sexual harassment claims that ultimately forced him into retirement. Judge Kosinski’s conduct is of particular relevance considering President Donald Trump’s most recent Supreme Court nomination, Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh clerked for Kosinksi in the early 1990’s, right around the time when the alleged sexual harassment would have occurred.
Democrats are now planning to press Kavanaugh as to the extent of his knowledge about Judge Kosinski’s behavior. A statement from the White House in support of Kavanaugh has already asserted that Kavanaugh had no knowledge of the misconduct, and at this point, there is no evidence to suggest that that statement is false. Nonetheless, expect Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing to be full of questions about not only his ties to Kosinski, but also how he believes this systemic problem should be addressed from a judicial perspective.
