Michigan AG Candidate Vows in Ad 'I Will Not Sexually Harass My Staff'

What happened?

A Democratic candidate for Michigan attorney general has a new campaign ad about sexual harassment that seems to be saying “elect me because I’m a woman.”

How did she tie her campaign to sexual harassment?

The Detroit attorney was apparently referencing Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Al Franken and other men in powerful positions who have been accused of sexual misconduct.

“We need more women in positions of power, not less,” Dana Nessel said in the campaign ad. “So when you’re choosing Michigan’s next attorney general, ask yourself this: Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis? I’d say so.”

Glenn’s take:

“I’m hoping that she’s joking here,” Glenn said. Yes, it’s not possible for her to follow the Harvey Weinstein playbook for traumatizing actresses and reporters because of her anatomy, but as we learned in 2016, “running solely on gender doesn’t really work.”

GLENN: Michigan attorney general candidate Dana Nestle wants you to know something. I'm not making this up. She thinks it's important for you to know that she does not have a penis.

VOICE: In the last few weeks has taught us anything is that we need more women in positions of power, not less. So when you're choosing Michigan's next attorney general, ask yourself this, who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn't have a penis? I'd say so.

GLENN: Okay. I'm -- I'm hoping that she's joking here.

I mean, she does have a point. You know, it's not possible for her to do the things that the Weinsteins and Conyers of the world have allegedly done. And that's a promise that she can absolutely keep to her constituents. But as we saw with the presidential election of 2016, running solely on gender doesn't really work.

Plus, isn't this gender specific? I mean, it's a little unfair and sexist to imply that there is a risk of a potted plant or a bathroom incident if a man holds position of power, simply because he's a man.

All of the allegations about sexual misconduct are throwing a much needed light on the fact that our societal ideas about manhood have been completely decimated.

We have to remember real men don't do this kind of crap. They don't -- they don't get their confidence or their ego for asking women to look or touch their junk. Real men elevate their coworkers, their acquaintances, regardless of gender, to their best self. And you know what, can I tell you something else? I think -- I know this sounds sexist. But I think real men actually stand up to dirtbag men like that and protect women and other men or anyone else who might be in the line of fire of that potted plant.

It might not seem like right now, but with two months of non-stop allegations coming out every day, it doesn't seem like it. But there are good men out there who don't keep bags of sex toys in their office closet.

Those men do exist. Right? They are the majority. Right?

WATCH: Rudy Giuliani says he has PROOF Joe Biden was business partners with Chinese Communists

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

GLENN’S THEORY: This is why Hunter Biden allegedly abandoned his laptop

We don't yet fully know why or how Hunter Biden's laptop allegedly was abandoned at a computer repair store. But, Glenn has a theory: did Hunter Biden purposely leave his computer — which contains countless materials harmful to his dad's campaign — to make it all stop? Hunter Biden has a troubled past — he has a history of alcohol and drug abuse, and it seems like Joe Biden has used his son for years to enrich the Biden family. So, Glenn thinks, maybe Hunter knew what he was doing…maybe it was a "self-sabotaging" cry for help. It's just a theory, but Glenn thinks it's a theory worth pursuing...

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.
