PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon state senator filed a formal complaint Wednesday against another senator involving accounts of sexual harassment and asked for his expulsion from the legislative body in a letter that contained detailed descriptions of the alleged behavior.

In the five-page complaint, Sen. Sara Gelser says Sen. Jeff Kruse touched her breasts, put his hand on her thigh during a committee hearing, slipped his fingers under the hem of her skirt, kissed her on the cheek and whispered in her ear so closely that it left her ear and cheek wet.
 
An investigation completed this week after Gelser made an informal complaint turned up evidence that the Republican senator from Roseburg had behaved inappropriately toward other women, Gelser wrote.

At least 15 other women have reported problems with Kruse, including another female senator, Gelser, a Democrat, wrote.

3. What is it with these guys?

They think they're God's gift to women? They think they're sexy? Why do they not respect the boundaries that most people do?

Where does the sense of entitlement come from?

5. Drunk with power.

Always reminds me of England's Lord Acton who said in relation to the rulers of the church and state in 1887:

(snip)
I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike other men, with a favourable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption it is the other way, against the holders of power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility has to make up for the want of legal responsibility. Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority, still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it.

........I would hang them higher than Haman, for reasons of quite obvious justice, still more, still higher for the sake of historical science.

-----------------

The "sanctification" in this case comes simply from their declarations of be "Republican" and "Christian".
