Sarah Palin spoke to MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt today, and she said no one has ever sexually harassed her because anyone who might’ve wanted to knows they’d be shot if they tried it.
The former governor of Alaska showed up in Congress today, telling reporters she was visiting Rand Paul while the senator continues to recover from the injuries of the assault against him earlier this month. Hunt caught up with Palin during her visit, and she got her reaction to all of the recent news regarding inappropriate sexual behavior.
Palin said the sexual harassment is not a partisan issue and recent developments will prompt new questions about the standard to which people will be held accountable. When asked if she ever experienced harassment in her life, Palin had this to say:
“You know, I think a whole lot of people know that, I’m probably packing. So I don’t think there’s a whole lot of people who would necessarily mess with me, and I don’t mean to be light-hearted about it because it’s a serious issue. It really stinks for women in the workplace that, for too long, men have thought they can get away with kind of being that old school thinking that it’s okay to belittle and harass women in general. The floodgates are really open that could lead to a lot of false accusations that really harm an innocent person.”
