What happened to always believe the woman?
According to the Washington Examiner:
The military adviser to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a 2020 presidential candidate who has been an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement and a campaigner against sexual misconduct in the military, kept his job despite allegations he sexually harassed a junior female aide.
Abbas Malik, an Iraq war veteran who served in the 101st Airborne Division, remained as one of Gillibrand’s closest advisers even after his accuser resigned in protest at how her allegations against him had been dealt with, according to Politico. The woman is in her mid-20s, junior to and a decade younger than Malik, who is married and at whose wedding Gillibrand officiated.
Malik, 34, was abruptly dismissed last week after media inquiries into his conduct. He was first hired by Gillibrand in 2011 as a special assistant, served as her driver and was promoted to become her military adviser in 2015, according to LegiStorm and LinkedIn data.
