Florida congressional candidate: I was Harvey Weinsteined'

MIAMI — A top congressional candidate in one of the nation’s marquee races for Democrats is accusing a political ally she once supported of exposing himself to her — and he’s countering that she might be lying to gain attention for her campaign.

The lurid dispute between Miami Beach City Commissioner Kristen Rosen Gonzalez and progressive activist Rafael Velasquez — a city commission candidate she had endorsed — marks the latest scandal nagging Florida Democrats amid the national debate about sexual harassment sparked by accusations from multiple women against movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

“I was 'Harvey Weinsteined' by Rafael Velasquez, the candidate I have been supporting and raising money for in the Miami Beach commission race,” Rosen Gonzalez said in a text message to POLITICO Florida.

The alleged incident occurred two weeks ago, Rosen Gonzalez said, as she was driving Velasquez to his car following a dinner where the two were discussing his campaign. She said she initially kept quiet, but a friend who contacted POLITICO Florida on her behalf told her that it was her duty to go public.
