Trump himself has been accused by 16 women of sexual misconduct, and his campaign race was rocked by a tape in which he says he can do "anything" to women, including "grab them by the p-y".
"Who can you trust most not to show their penis in a professional setting?"
Dana Nessel's campaign is pretty simple really.
Following the deluge of sexual misconduct allegations plaguing politicians, media, and Hollywood personalities, Nessel said she knows how to put an end to the growing problem. "Well, I read the news. I bet you do, too, and has me wondering: Can we afford not to?" According to Nessel, one practical way to nip the inappropriate conduct in the bud is by electing more women.
In addition to combating sexual harassment, Nessel has made reining in law enforcement a centerpiece of her campaign.
Conversely, Nessel mostly offered insights on the things she won't do if elected.
Nessel goes on to make the bare minimum of promises that it seems many male politicians and media men can not make themselves: If in office, she will not sexually harass her staff, tolerate workplace harassment, nor walk around in a half-open bathrobe (as Charlie Rose was said to have done to female employees).More news: Woman Arrested After Testing Toxic Substance on Senior Home Residents
As the ad goes on, Nessel moves from her purported inability to engage in sexual harassment to an explicit call for men to be excluded from Michigan's statewide offices. I won't walk around in a half-open bathrobe. "And, I'll continue to take all sex crimes seriously just like I did as a prosecutor".
"You won't find me using your hard-earned tax dollars to silence victims", Nessel says, referring to Texas Rep. Joe Barton and Michigan Rep. John Conyers, "or join right-wing lawsuits that make it harder for you to get health insurance".
"Yes, I'm a woman".
On Wednesday, the former assistant prosecutor spoke to WJBK about the ruckus-causing ad.
Nessel's new online campaign ad specifically tackles sexual harassment - now the most pressing issue in American politics, media and entertainment - by offering a solution: elect women to public office.
There have been more women running for office in the USA since Donald Trump was elected president.
