Default Saving a Republican Senator in Iowa - 03-13-2018, 02:48 PM

My apologies to citizens of Freehold for not answering some phone calls the past few days. I've been up at the Capital working to save the career of Republican Senator Billy Dix from Shell Rock.

Some jerk video recorded Billy in the Des Moines Waveland Bar a few weeks ago. Billy had had a tough day in the State Senate working to cut school lunch money and he was enjoying a few beers. He spotted a beautiful lobbyist he knew from down at the Capital. They visited Billy accidentally kissed the lobbyist. The unauthorized video got show all over Iowa.

I called Billy's wife on their farm up in Shell Rock and told her it is all a mistake. She said she and the their three teenagers are struggling to keep the farm going.

Then I went to work to save Billy's political career. I have to admit some Republicans are unreasonable. The women Republicans are mad because Billy spearheaded a Republican effort against sexual harassment. The men Republicans are mad a Billy for getting caught. I had to let them take Billy's Senate Majority Leader and he resigned from the Senate. I tell them Billy has been at the forefront of all the Christian legislation they have passed, anti gay and anti abortion. Hopefully I can smooth over things with the voters up in Shell Rock and he can run again.

I should be back in the Mayor's office soon.

Once again, in the world of the LIEberals and the loony left hypocrisy reigns supreme. Outraged at the "Pence Rule" the LIEberals went on the attack, and now some honorable State Senator (who makes an honest living as a melon farmer) in Iowa (the LIEberals call it "fly over" country) is put down for agreeing to meet with a woman that no doubt concerned "women's issues" (and perhaps melons).

And what now - if I want to have a few drinks with our honorable Mayor Hold to discuss some Freehold policy I'm now considered a "lobbyist"?

It only goes to prove that the swamp needs to be drained - both in Washington D.C. and in Iowa.

How Pence's Dudely Dinners Hurt Women
The vice president—and other powerful men—regularly avoid one-on-one meetings with women in the name of protecting their families. In the end, what suffers is women’s progress.
Olga Khazan Mar 30, 2017

In a recent, in-depth Washington Post profile of Karen Pence, Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, a small detail is drawing most of the attention: “In 2002, Mike Pence told The Hill that he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife and that he won’t attend events featuring alcohol without her by his side, either.”

In context, this choice is not especially surprising. The Pences are evangelical Christians, and their faith animates both their policy views and how they express devotion to one another. Eight months into their courtship, the Post reporter Ashley Parker writes, “Karen engraved a small gold cross with the word ‘Yes’ and slipped it into her purse to give him when he popped the question.”

But, especially in boozy, late-working Washington, the eating thing rankled. Sure, during the day, you can grab coffee instead of a sandwich. But no dinner? Doesn’t that cut an entire gender off from a very powerful person at roughly 8 p.m.? To career-obsessed Washingtonians, that’s practically happy hour—which, apparently, is off-limits too.

Pence is not the only powerful man in Washington who goes to great lengths to avoid the appearance of impropriety with the opposite sex. An anonymous survey of female Capitol Hill staffers conducted by National Journal in 2015 found that “several female aides reported that they have been barred from staffing their male bosses at evening events, driving alone with their congressman or senator, or even sitting down one-on-one in his office for fear that others would get the wrong impression.” One told the reporter Sarah Mimms that in 12 years working for her previous boss, he “never took a closed door meeting with me. ... This made sensitive and strategic discussions extremely difficult.”

Social-science research shows this practice extends beyond politics and into the business world, and it can hold women back from key advancement opportunities. A 2010 Harvard Business Review research report led by Sylvia Ann Hewlett, the president of the Center for Work-Life Policy think tank, found that many men avoid being sponsors—workplace advocates—for women “because sponsorship can be misconstrued as sexual interest.”

Hewlett’s surveys, interviews, and focus groups found that 64 percent of executive men are reluctant to have one-on-one meetings with junior women, and half of junior women avoid those meetings in turn. Perhaps as a result, 31 percent of women in her sample felt senior men weren’t willing to “spend their chips” on younger women in office political battles. What’s more, “30 percent of them noted that the sexual tension intrinsic to any one-on-one relationship with men made male sponsorship too difficult to be productive.”

And that’s too bad, because according to the Harvard study and some others, women prefer male sponsors, perceiving them to be better-connected and more powerful. And they’re right: According to some analyses, men hold more than 85 percent of top management positions in big companies.

Because of that, when men avoid professional relationships with women, even if for noble reasons, it actually hurts women in the end. “The research is irrefutable: Those with larger networks earn more money and get promoted faster. Because men typically dominate senior management, there’s evidence that the most valuable network members may be men,” wrote Kim Elsesser, a research scholar at the UCLA Center for the Study of Women, in the Los Angeles Times recently. “Without access to beneficial friendships and mentor relationships with executive men, women won’t be able to close the gender gap that exists in most professions.”

. . . .

A cheesy bon-mot popular among lobbyists goes, “in Washington, if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu.” In other words, if you don’t schmooze, you lose—and so does the agenda you’re pushing. If Pence literally won’t sit at the table with women, where does that leave women’s issues?

There’s really no need for Pence—or any other man—to wall women off professionally. As my colleague Emma Green points out, the Pence rule (which is actually the Billy Graham rule) is meant to preserve a marriage at all costs. But in the age of sexting, avoiding co-ed meetings seems aimed more at managing one’s reputation than at preventing a sex scandal. In 2017, if you really wanted to cheat on your wife, you wouldn’t take your staffer to the Palm. You’d hit her up on Snapchat.

Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.
