A reporter for MSNBC bumped into former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in Washington DC and decided to ask her if she had ever faced sexual harassment. Palin’s answer was pure gold.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Palin: People Don’t Sexually Harass Me Because They ‘Know That I’m Probably Packing’
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R.) on Thursday condemned sexual harassment in the workplace and said it is “not a partisan issue,” before adding that she has not personally been sexually harassed.
MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt stopped Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, in the U.S. Capitol to discuss sexual harassment in the workplace amid several high-profile reports of women, and some men, coming forward to tell their stories.
“It’s not a partisan issue, so when we see this happening today, I think that it leads to a lot of questions about what standards are going to be applied to whom,” Palin said.
Hunt followed up by asking Palin whether she has ever experienced sexual harassment in the workplace as an “ambitious woman” in public life.
“I think a whole lot of people know that I’m probably packing, and so I don’t think there’s a whole lot of people who would necessarily mess with me,” said Palin, a vocal advocate of the Second Amendment. “I don’t mean to be lighthearted; this is a serious issue.”
