Support Al: (202) 224-5641

As a woman who has been harassed since I was a young girl, including junior high school teachers, on up to professors in college and on into professional life, I understand this issue from the inside. And I intend to call Al tomorrow morning and tell him I stand by him.

I'm disappointed in him that he thinks such antics are cute, funny or adorable. This kind of unawareness on his part grows out of systemmic patriarchal culture, in general. It's the air we breathe. But his actions don't come from a deep-seated need to have power over a woman.

I'm impressed that he's asking for an investigation of himself.

I'll be no part of drumming this good man, whom we need now more than ever, out of office for this stupid sour joke. Paul Wellstone, his mentor and role model, would agree, I'm sure.
