Kansas Democrat Andrea Ramsey has dropped out of a campaign for Congress after proof surfaced that she used her power to sexually harass and punish a male subordinate.
In case that sounds sexy in any way, consider that the man told Ramsey point-blank he would not engage in a sexual relationship with her, whereupon she gave him poor performance reviews and got him fired.
Not only is Ramsey one of the first women to be implicated in the sex-harassment “purge,” she seemed to criticize her party in an official statement, mentioning the Democrats’ “rush to claim the high ground” on an issue on which many of their leading figures have been outed as dirt-bags or rapists.

Democratic congressional candidate Andrea Ramsey announced that she will drop out of the race for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday after allegations of sexual harassment against a male coworker resurfaced.
“In its rush to claim the high ground in our roiling national conversation about harassment, the Democratic Party has implemented a zero tolerance standard,” Ramsey said in a statement Friday, announcing her retirement from the race.
Her announcement comes after Gary Funkhouser accused Ramsey — the former executive vice president of human resources at LabOne — of subjecting him to “unwelcome and inappropriate sexual comments and innuendos” in 2004 when he was a LabOne human resources manager, according to the Kansas City Star.
“After I told her I was not interested in having a sexual relationship with her, she stopped talking to me,” Funkhouser wrote in a 2005 lawsuit against her.
He alleges that prior to rejecting her advances, Ramsey had said great things about his performance, but that following his refusal of her posturing, she reported poor performance and subsequently fired him.
Ramsey also blasted the Democratic Party for killing her “promising” campaign.
