New Jersey ‘Rape Culture’: Democrat Says She Was Raped by Governor’s Aide

Everybody involved in this story is a Democrat:

The woman who accused a senior staffer in Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration of sexually assaulting her while he worked for Murphy’s campaign last year is a state official who says she is now telling her story because she has “received no justice.”
Katie Brennan, who later volunteered for the campaign and is now the chief of staff at the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, detailed her allegations against Albert J. Alvarez publicly for the first time in a story published by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday afternoon.
After the report was published Sunday afternoon, Brennan said in a statement: “On April 8th, 2017, Al Alvarez raped me. On April 9th, 2017 I learned that the system is broken.”
“I have pursued every form of justice available,” Brennan, 31, of Jersey City, continued. “But it has become clear that this system is not built for survivors.”
Brennan said she “decided to come forward because I know that Al Alvarez, and all perpetrators, must be held accountable, must never rape again, and the justice system needs a complete change with regard to sexual violence.” . . .
Multiple media outlets . . . published reports this week citing anonymous sources saying Alvarez faced allegations of sexual assault while he worked as director of Latin and Muslim outreach for Murphy’s campaign in April 2017. Alvarez, 44, of Wood-Ridge, was never charged with a crime.
Alvarez, a fellow Democrat, later worked as deputy of personnel for Murphy’s transition team and then as chief of staff of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority under Murphy’s administration. He resigned Oct. 2, the same day the Journal contacted him seeking comment.

Look, I’d argue that Alvarez has the right to be presumed innocent, but Democrats have been lecturing us that we must #BelieveWomen. If Democrats are raping Democrats in New Jersey, this is a good argument for women to avoid Democrats, or maybe just avoid New Jersey.
