Does Tony Cárdenas Molest Underage Girls?


ProgressivePunch rates him a "D"

So far this quarter, Tony Cárdenas has raised $1,052,328 and his likely GOP opponent, Benny Bernal, has raised $2,300. His district, CA-29 has a convenient PVI to remember D+29. Hillary beat Trump there 77.7% to 16.8%. It runs from just north of Sylmar and the Foothill Freeway through San Fernando, Pacoima, Sepulveda, Panorama City and Sun Valley as far south as Van Nuys and North Hollywood. The district is less than 20% white and Cárdenas owns it-- or did. Head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus' BOLD PAC, he's always had an odor of corruption around him. But now he's been accused of exually molesting a 16 year old. He says he didn't do it. Don't they all? His statement is very politically correct.
"We respect victims who have found the strength to come forward and call out misconduct when it has actually occurred, but the type of baseless and reckless allegations that are contained in the complaint against my client can ruin the lives and careers of innocent people," she said.

Cárdenas said the woman who filed the suit is the daughter of a "disgruntled former employee" who "may be the victim of manipulation."
ABC News reports that "the lawsuit that the defendant invited the then-teenager to play golf with him at Hillcrest Country Club and sometime during the round gave her a cup of water that had a 'peculiar taste.' The girl later collapsed but was still conscious. According to the suit, while driving her to a hospital, the man intermittently reached inside her shirt and down her pants, touching her breasts and vagina. She pretended to be asleep out of fear of what he might do. The lawsuit also described a later incident at the teen's father's place of business, in which the politician told her: 'Remember where your dad works.' The plaintiff perceived that statement as a threat against her family's security."

Cárdenas has been calling colleagues all week denying he sexually molested the girl. And maybe he didn't.

If what she says is true, just who does Cardenas think he is? Bill Cosby? If so, he should have read the book all the way through. It doesn't end well.
