Florida Democrat asked to drop out of gubernatorial race following years-old assault allegations

Jeff Greene, vying for the Democratic nomination for governor in Florida, is facing calls to drop out of the race after old allegations of assault have surfaced.

Florida’s National Organization for Women (NOW) chapter has called on Greene to drop out of the race, citing the recent #MeToo movement, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

“This type of assault is rooted in power imbalance, and so it’s unfortunately not surprising that a billionaire like Jeff Greene victimized a female employee,” Florida NOW President Terry Sanders said in a statement.

“I am the only one who has stood up against President Trump,” Greene said.

Greene also accused the National Rifle Association (NRA) of turning “our kids into targets” in a striking campaign mailer which included images of outlined children with backpacks as shooting targets.
