Deborah Ramirez (Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence/ Facebook)
You’re employed in Boulder County’s homeless shelter / services industry, according to the Daily Camera article excerpted below:
The Boulder County Commissioners released a statement late Monday confirming their support for Deborah Ramirez, the Boulder woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct while both were students at Yale University.
Ramirez told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dormitory party in the 1983-1984 academic year.
“We stand firmly behind our brave Boulder County employee who chose to speak publicly about a demeaning and demoralizing act of sexual misconduct she experienced as a young woman,” the statement begins. “We fully support an employee’s right to speak their truth and we stand with Deborah Ramirez in her courageous decision to speak up.”
The statement describes Ramirez as a valued and trusted member of the county’s department of housing and human services (emphasis is mine — MRW) who is passionate about serving families in need and who connects community donors with families during the holidays.
Okay . . . Who is serving the adult survivors of sexual abuse who are housed along with registered sex offenders at Boulder Shelter for the Homeless right now in 2018? Who has the courage to do so from within the county’s department of housing and human services? Apparently NEITHER Deborah Ramirez NOR the Boulder County Commissioners give a damn about the vulnerable women forced to stay overnight with the likes of these perverts (please note BSH’s address of 4869 N. Broadway, and also see for yourself how many homeless sex offenders are roaming the streets in Boulder, CO): City of Boulder Registered Sex Offenders.
Who stands for these survivors of horrific crimes? I guess there’s no partisan political advantage to speaking out for homeless men and women, victimized first by sexual predators and then by a corrupt system which enables them, and it sickens me that Ms. Ramirez and the pathetic Boulder County Commissioners want to play games in the news media.
Deborah Ramirez, if you want to explain yourself to readers of this blog I’ll publish your unedited reply to this post, as soon as you send it to me. Otherwise, I want you to understand that many of us consider your allegations against Judge Kavanaugh pure BS.
