Florida Democrat Party Chairman Resigns Over Sex Allegations

Stephen Bittel resigned as the chairman of Florida’s Democrat Party amidst allegations from six current and former staffers.  They said it was common knowledge that you had to make sure you were never alone with him. He frequently commented on women’s breasts and other similar remarks.

Bittel put out the following statement in resigning his post:

After Politico came out with the story, four prominent Democrats put pressure on Bittel to resign, which he did.

From The Daily Caller

“There was a lot of boob stuff in his office,” one woman who interacted with Bittel told Politico. “I was told by other women not to go into his bathroom. I was warned.”

“He’s just so f—-ng creepy,” a former party staffer told Politico. “He just leers at you, and stares. I don’t know if you know what that feels like, but he just leers at you. I don’t know how to describe the feeling.”

Another former staffer said that it “became a policy” that female staffers avoided being alone with Bittel in his office, airplane or house.

“He’s very demeaning. He’s inappropriate in his comments he makes to women,” the former staffer said.

Bittel is not very popular among men either.  He was the subject of a hacked email from the DNC that discussed seating arrangements for an event.

Emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee and released by Wikileaks last year showed that he was viewed with contempt by party staffers.

Bittel, as a national co-chairman of the DNC’s finance committee, hosted a May 18, 2016 fundraiser attended by President Obama.

Two days before the event, two party officials vented over Bittel through email.

“Bittel said this morning he was coming so just plan on it, but he doesn’t sit next to POTUS!” Jordan Kaplan, the DNC’s national finance director, told one of his deputies, Alexandra Shapiro.

“Yes — Bittel will be sitting in the shittiest corner I can find,” Shapiro wrote back.
