There are five women who have come forward with credible claims of sexual harassment against OC Labor Feb Chief Julio Perez.
The investigation against him has been ongoing for nearly two months — and for many observers, it’s stretched out to somehow absolve him.
Julio Perez needs to resign his post from the OC Labor Fed for the good of labor and the good of Democratic candidates running for critical elections in 2018. Candidates relying on the OC Labor Fed’s endorsement in 2018 would best avoid any endorsement from Perez as he is simply tainted. His word isn’t credible.
Perez has been accused by five women of sexual harassment, Eliminate even one or two of these cases, there are three others. We’re aware of campaigns to discredit certain women in the Perez case and logic suggests claims don’t equal facts. He needs to be held accountable and the “independent investigation” into charges against him should have been completed weeks ago.
For Labor to have any impact on the 2018 elections or Democrats who count of labor support in 2018, time to make a hard split and divorce yourself rom Julio Perez now. His endorsement is poison. The OC Labor Fed should move swiftly to appoint a new leader — preferably a WOMAN — to lead the OC Labor Fed into the next election cycle with a measure of credibility.
For Democratic electeds in OC, it’s passed time to divorce yourselves from Julio Perez.
Resign Julio. Find something else to do in the private sector. Your presence hurts Progressives and Democrats in Orange County. Resign.
