Obama's CDC Director Tom Friedan Arrested...The Reason Why Is Typical
There’s a lot to be said about the failures of the #MeToo movement, but they’re definitely right about one thing.
People in power (not just men, often women as well) often accumulate the sort of inflated ego that makes them think they can get away with anything.
How else can you explain the Clintons’ entire careers?
Weirdly enough, even the head of the Center for Disease Control, a non-political organization (at least, it’s not supposed to be political, but that’s another article), is just as capable of being a total creeper as anyone else.
Obama CDC head appointee Tom Frieden has been arrested for allegedly groping a woman outside his New York apartment in October 2017.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The former head of the Centers for Disease Control Tom Frieden was arrested on Friday on charges of sexual abuse and harassment, according to a report.Advertisement - story continues below
New York police officers arrested Frieden in the city on Friday, according to CNBC. Frieden was arrested in connection with allegedly forcibly touching a woman in October 2017, the New York-based PIX11 News reported.
Frieden was accused of grabbing a woman’s buttocks in the city last October, the news station reported. The police are expected to charge him with forcibly touching a woman, sexual abuse and harassment, the station added.
Frieden was the longest-standing director to head the agency since the 1970’s, serving from 2009 to 2017, when he resigned (predictably) when Trump was elected.
He oversaw outbreaks of the Zika and Ebola viruses as well as the 2009 H1N1 swine flu pandemic.
We’ll just have to see how he handles this, um, personal crisis!
