Morgan & Fung Silent on Sexual Harassment

GOP Candidates Refuse to Call on Republican Leader Accused of Sexual Harassment to Step Down 

Republican gubernatorial candidates Patricia Morgan and Allan Fung refuse to call for the resignation of a leading Rhode Island Republican accused of sexual harassment.

Multiple complaints of sexual harassment have emerged against Rob Sullivan, president of the Rhode Island Young Republicans, according to GoLocalProv. When asked for comment, Minority Leader Morgan said she couldn’t call for him to resign. And Mayor Fung? Continuing his pattern of hiding when asked simple questions, Fung refused to respond to a request for comment.

“Rhode Islanders deserve a leader with the courage to speak out against sexual harassment,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold. “Unfortunately, Morgan and Fung have shown themselves to be cowards who put their own political agendas ahead of doing what’s right for Rhode Islanders.”
