The following article, Far-Left Justice Democrats Candidate is Accused of Having Illicit ‘Sexual Contact’ with Students, was first published on Big League Politics.
Holyoke, Mass. Mayor Alex Morse, a 31-year-old far-left Democrat politician endorsed by the Justice Democrats, is being accused of improper sexual conduct by leftist activists.
Morse, who used to work as a political science lecturer at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, is being accused of using “his platform and taking advantage of his position of power for romantic or sexual gain, specifically toward young students.” They allege that he had “sexual contact” with students while serving as a lecturer.
“Numerous incidents over the course of several years have shown that it is no longer appropriate to encourage interaction between College Democrats and Alex Morse,” wrote the College Democrats of Massachusetts, U-Mass.-Amherst Democrats, and Amherst College Democrats in a joint email.
In a response, Morse denied any culpability while playing his LGBT victim card in a pathetic attempt to gain sympathy.
“I want to be clear that every relationship I’ve had has been consensual. However, I also recognize that I have to be cognizant of my position of power,” Morse said in response to the allegations.
“Navigating life as both a young gay man and an elected official can be difficult, but that doesn’t excuse poor judgment,” he added.
The university has announced that they will be investigating any potential wrongdoing by Morse, and noted that they were unaware of the allegations before the email was sent out by Democrat student groups.
“The university’s policy on consensual relationships between faculty and students notes that dating or sexual relationships between faculty and students or post-docs are inherently problematic because of the unequal power dynamic between the parties to the relationship,” spokesperson Ed Blaguszewski said in a statement.
“Therefore, faculty are prohibited from entering into a sexual relationship with any student or postdoc for whom the faculty member has any responsibility for supervision, evaluation, grading, advising, employment, or other instructional or supervisory activity,” he added.
Morse is attempting to unseat Rep. Richard Neal for the U.S. House seat in Massachusetts’ 1st Congressional district. The Justice Democrats see Morse as their progressive hope in the district to unseat a powerful establishment-aligned incumbent.
“Neal has been a bulwark against progressive priorities in the Democratic Party like Medicare for All and holding Trump accountable,” the group wrote in their endorsement of Morse. “We need Democrats who fight for voters, not big corporate donors.”
“I am eager to work alongside other Justice Democrats to fight for Medicare for All and a Green New Deal, for policies that put working people and working families first, and to defend our democracy from the influence of special interests and corporate money,” Morse said in a statement. “I’m not going to Washington to maintain the status quo. I want to go to Washington to fight for the people and communities of western Massachusetts.”
Morse’s chances to unseat Neal are dwindling in lieu of these accusations, which will be taken as canon by many Democrats who no longer believe in due process and the importance of evidence in the age of #MeToo.
