A former employee alleged in a story published Sunday that Women's March co-founder Linda Sarsour covered up and dismissed complaints of graphic sexual assault. Now New York Democratic state Rep. Dov Hikind is calling for an investigation into the charges.
Sarsour is accused of enabling the alleged sexual assault and harassment of a woman who worked for her, Asmi Fathelbab, according to the victim and two sources directly familiar with the matter.
The assault took place at the Arab American Association while Sarsour served as executive director. Fathelbab told The Daily Caller that instead of properly dealing with the complaints, Sarsour dismissed them because Fathelbab "was not attractive enough to be harassed" and the accused was a "good Muslim" who was "always at the Mosque."
