A #MeToo Witch Hunt Emerges to Destroy Trump-Backing State Senator in Battleground State
Michigan state senator Pete Lucido of Macomb County, a pro-Trump stronghold that was crucial in turning the state red in 2016, is the latest victim of a #MeToo witch hunt that is trying to destroy his career on dubious charges.
Lucido, a prominent backer of President Trump, has been accused of sexual improprieties by three different women. It started after reporter Alison Donahue was triggered because Lucido made a joke while she was harassing him at the state Capitol in Lansing.
Michigan Advance reporter Alison Donahue played the victim and released a whiny diatribe following the supposed incident:
After the Senate session ended and the chamber cleared out, a line of about 30 boys from Lucido’s alma mater, De La Salle Collegiate, an all boys’ Catholic high school in Warren, stood in front of the Senate doors.
I asked Lucido for a moment to address the issue at hand, and he told me he would catch up with me after he was finished honoring the group of students.
As I turned to walk away, he asked, “You’ve heard of De La Salle, right?”
I told him I hadn’t.
“It’s an all boys’ school,” he told me.
“You should hang around! You could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you.”
The teenagers burst into an Old Boys’ Network-type of laughter, and I walked away knowing that I had been the punchline of their “locker room” talk.
Lucido has said that Donahue misquoted him, but the truth of the matter does not particularly matter. Other far-left women have piled on following Donahue’s accusation, sensing blood in the water and a chance to destroy another man’s life.
Melissa Osborn, a 40-year-old regulatory affairs specialist for a trade group, is claiming that Lucido touched her “lower back/upper butt.”
“He was looking at me up and down,” she said. “And he stayed there for several minutes, making these comments about my appearance and my look and what he liked about it.”
Democratic state senator Mallory McMorrow has also alleged impropriety from Lucido that occurred in November 2018.
“He shook my hand and with his other hand held my low back with his fingers on my hips, effectively upper rear, and we had a back-and-forth conversation,” the Democrat lawmaker said.
“And he asked where I was from,” McMorrow said. “I said, ‘Royal Oak.’ He asked who I ran against. And I said, ‘I beat Marty Knollenberg.’ At which point he looked me up and down, raised his eyebrows and said, ‘I can see why.'”
She used her testimony, which Lucido categorically denies, to play the victim.
“In that moment, I was exhausted from running a campaign for a year and a half, but I remember thinking, it doesn’t matter to this person that I ran a campaign for a year and a half, that I quit my job to do that,” said McMorrow. “It doesn’t matter what my background is or if I’m suited to do this job. It was: You’re a piece of meat and of course you won this election.”
With the election right around the corner, Democrats are already preparing their dirty tricks and attempting to destroy President Trump’s surrogates.
