Jewish Assemblyman Resigns – Another Sexual Harassment Scandal

Ryan KarbenOrthodox State Assemblyman Ryan Karben of Monsey has abruptly resigned his second term post admid sketchy allegations that he made unwanted sexual advances on male interns. There have been other stories over the years but this is apparantly the end of the line for Karben who many thought would run for higher office. Karben first entered public office while enrolled as a student at Yeshiva University and then elected to the Rockland county legislature in 1997. Stories in recent years implied certain improprieties and even residencies in two voting districts but details were often vague. Steven I. is labeling Karben as a “Smaller, Jewy-er, Harassment-er McGreevey”

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
