Is Ambassador Gordon Sondland a pervert or are the charges bogus?
Three women have accused U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland of sexual misconduct, according to a report from ProPublica and Portland Monthly.
The accusations vary from unwanted kissing and touching to assault, according to the three women, who all met him under different professional circumstances.
Gordon Sondland, the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, was accused Wednesday of sexual misconduct by three women.
Three Women Accuse Gordon Sondland of Sexual Misconduct
Washington (AFP) – U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland was accused Wednesday of sexual misconduct by three women.
A US ambassador nominated by President Donald Trump who provided key testimony in his impeachment hearings was accused Wednesday of sexual misconduct by three women.
Gordon Sondland, the US envoy to the European Union, denied the allegations, with his lawyer alleging that the accusers were trying to taint his credibility in the inquiry.
The Portland Monthly published named accounts by three women who said that Sondland, a wealthy hotel owner from Seattle, retaliated against them professionally after they rejected him sexually.
One of the women, Jana Solis, said she met Sondland in 2008 when she was seeking work in her position as a safety expert for hotels.
She said Sondland met her for lunch and offered her a job as “my new hotel chick” before slapping her rear.
She said Sondland later invited her to his Portland home to evaluate his personal art collection — which included a picture of himself with then president George W. Bush — and that he exposed himself in the pool house.
She said Sondland at a later meeting also forcibly kissed her.
Another woman, Nicole Vogel, said she met Sondland in 2003 over dinner to seek investment in a new magazine.
He then took her to a hotel he owned and invited her to see a room, where he requested a hug and then “grabs my face and goes to kiss me,” she said. More
I started telling my daughter when she was 12, why a woman should never go to a man’s hotel room or house alone. To a man’s brain, that is an acceptance to some degree that she wants him. Even is she’s a professional, decent woman.
It’s a misunderstanding built on hormones. This is exactly why VP Pence does not dine with women who are not his wife.
