Former head of CDC arrested on charges of groping woman

Tom Frieden, the former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was arraigned in New York on Friday afternoon and released without bail, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney.

Frieden was arrested Friday morning amid allegations he groped a woman in his apartment.

According to the New York Police Department, he was charged with forcible touching, sexual abuse and harassment after he allegedly inappropriately touched a woman in October 2017. He is accused of grabbing a woman's buttocks. The woman reported the incident in July, police said.

Tell me if I'm wrong:
Eventually EVERY guy on earth could be guilty of "inappropriate touching".
I'm 60 YO. Back in high school I tried on a few occasions to get to 1st (even 2nd) base. Sometimes it happened - sometimes I heard the word "no" and stopped.
Am I alone here? Hasn't every red-blooded male been through this? If so, do you figure you can NEVER be in an elected office?

He grabbed her butt in October, and she finally got around to making an issue of it in July? And she was at his residence?

Sounds fishy.

1054 evidently in our world today, there is no timetable. Grabbin butts is no where on par with Priests touching kids. BUT, the media will sell both as awful simply for ratings. Like Trump, he cheated on whatever wife with playmates, stripers, etc. WHO CARES - JFK, CLINTON, et al did the same damn thing. Bush #2's wife killed a woman in a car accident. WHO CARES!

If it bleeds, it leads!
