Meet Dana Nessel, a Democratic candidate for Michigan Attorney General. She’s a Detroit attorney who became Michigan-famous for leading the legal fight for marriage equality in the Great Lakes State (and in the Wolverine State, too). And as her pretty-damn-good online ad suggests, she has a good idea for reducing the amount of sexual harassment by icky men in high office: Get more women in office.
From Detroit’s ABC affiliate:
The ad flashed headlines behind her about sex scandals involving male politicians. “I will not sexually harass my staff, and I won’t tolerate it in your workplace either,” she said. Michigan Republicans said the ad exploited the sexual harassment crisis. “Sexual harassment is not a laughing matter,” said Sarah Anderson, communications director for the Michigan Republican Party. “In a crisis, a leader fights for what is right, they don’t exploit a crisis for personal gain.”
