topeka - An American politician ends her campaign because of old accusations of sexual harassment. It may be the first time that a woman in public life has suffered the consequences of such accusations since the # MeToo discussion started, reports The New York Times.
Democrat Andrea Ramsey (56) from Kansas wanted to secure a seat in the House of Representatives.
However, she was forced to step back after a local newspaper asked her about a 2005 lawsuit. A former employee of a company where Ramsey had a top job claimed that he had lost his job because he refused to share the bed with her..
She called the accusation 'a lie'.
