Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour has been accused of covering up the sexual assault of women during her time as executive director of the Arab American Association.
You read that right – the founder of a pro women’s march has been accused of covering up numerous instances of assault on a woman.
Now, a prominent New York Democrat is calling for an investigation into the alleged misconduct.
State Rep. Dov Hikind, who has served in Brooklyn for thirty-four years said, “Women everywhere should be demanding an investigation into these charges.”

Hikind added, “If Linda Sarsour enabled the sexual assault & harassment of a woman who worked for her, as alleged, this should concern everyone.”
Sarsour has been accused of covering up the ‘groping and unwanted touching’ of a former employee, Asmi Fathelbab. The story was corroborated by two other witnesses.
Fathelbab went to Sarsour with the accusations but was dismissed according to the complainant because she “was not attractive enough to be harassed.”
Sarsour also reportedly told her the man she accused of assault was a “good Muslim” who was “always at the Mosque.”

Fathelbab called Sarsour out for being a fraud on women’s rights.
“She oversaw an environment unsafe and abusive to women,” Fathelbab said. “Women who put [Sarsour] on a pedestal for women’s rights and empowerment deserve to know how she really treats us.”
Earlier this summer, Sarsour called on followers to form a “jihad” against President Trump.
She has a history of violent statements against women as well, including calls for violence against Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali woman from the Netherlands who suffered through female genital mutilation.
Linda Sarsour of the @WomensMarch:
– Threatened to cut off genitalia of Muslim women she doesn’t like
– Idolizes a terrorist, Rasmea Odeh
– Praised a cop killer, Assata Shakur
– Enabled sexual predators in her workplace
Not ONE liberal will say “she doesn’t represent our party”?

Fun fact – Sarsour is a darling of the Democrat Party. She was a Bernie Sanders delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention. One of her biggest fans is New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who penned a glowing article about the jihad-supporting activist in Time magazine.

At least one Democrat in New York is calling Sarsour a fraud. Will anybody else follow suit?
