(PresidentialInsider)- A Democratic legislator from Monroe County, New York, is accused of sending inappropriate sexual messages to a 19-year-old woman. Ernest Flagler-Mitchell allegedly sent a picture of his genitals to the woman but has since claimed that he believed he was sending the photos to his wife.
A likely story…
The news of the sexting scandal broke on the same day that Flagler-Mitchell officially became the new president of New Yorker’s chapter of NAACP.
The story was unveiled when LaKaya Sinclair, the 19-year-old victim, wrote a letter to Monroe County’s board of legislators and called for Flagler-Mitchell’s resignation. She described what happened to her in the letter.
“I am writing this letter to share with you that your colleague County Legislature for Legislative District 29, Ernest Flagler-Mitchell, has explicitly sexually harassed me and has sent me an unsolicited photo of his genital [sic],” she wrote.
Sinclair described how she first met Flagler-Mitchell following a shooting that occurred last year.
“A few days later, there was a community gathering and he introduced himself to me as the official county legislature [sic] for my district,” she said. “He gave his county legislature business card and told me if I ever needed anything to giver him a call.”
Sinclair said that she did reach out to him, but she didn’t expect to be sexually harassed.
She told the board of legislators that she was writing the letter to ensure they knew the kind of person he is, and that she would be going public with the story and asking for him to resign.
“No one should be in a position where they turned to their elected official for help and are met with unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate messages. I am only 19 years old,” she added.
In a subsequent letter sent by the Monroe County Democratic Caucus to Legislature President Dr. Joe Carborne, a full “independent review of facts” was requested to see if the story panned out.
“An independent review of facts” is needed, Monroe County Democratic Caucus announces in a letter to Legislature President Dr. Joe Carbone.

Interesting how Democrats are calling for a review and not simply believing Sinclaire’s story.
Believe all women…right?
