#TimesUp 4 C.T. Weber

Charges of sexual assault and sexual harassment have been brought against Sacramento based candidate for California Secretary of State, C.T. Weber. Weber is the only Peace and Freedom Party candidate in this race and like all other third party candidates will not go beyond the June 2018 primary because of the Top Two restrictions on voters' choices. Weber is also facing intense criticism for posing for photographs while wearing a Nazi Party uniform.
C.T. Weber has been a candidate for almost every election since Peace & Freedom Party was founded in 1968. In late January 2018, a former party candidate for the upper house of the state legislature from Sonoma County came forth with the information that Weber had sexually assaulted her by committing unwanted and uninvited sexual battery on her person on more than one occasion.

Shortly after that another woman in Weber's home county of Sacramento, added her own experiences to the record saying that Weber had sexually harassed her with unwanted, prolonged hugging, inappropriate comments to her of a sexual nature, and attacks on her personal religious beliefs. This second woman has registered out of the Peace and Freedom Party and doesn't intend to return to the organization which professes to be socialist and feminist in nature.

The party leadership said they were setting up a committee to interview these complainants but made no mention of asking C.T. Weber for the truth of these matters. Neither woman was contacted by this committee so it appears that the ad hoc committee is merely a window dressing fiction similar to when another male member of the party from Contra Costa County was convicted in 2006 of sexual relations with a 14 year old African American girl, jailed, and then given a life time requirement to register as a sex offender. In that earlier case, the party was to have set up a women's commission which never materialized.
