Sharon Davis: I Was Groped, Too (Desperation?)
Newsmax ^ | 10/6/03 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 10/06/2003 1:06:40 PM PDT by truthandlife

Even California first lady Sharon Davis wants to get into the act, diving into the Schwarzenegger accusathon Sunday night to detail her own humiliating groping experience while working as a mini-skirted flight attendant decades ago.

"I worked for the airlines," Mrs. Davis told CNN's "Larry King." "In fact, I worked for PSA when we wore short little uniforms."

"Because of the type of uniform we wore people felt like they could take liberties and it was humiliating and so I understand [why Arnold's accusers are upset]," she explained.

Asked if male passengers had ever grabbed her, Mrs. Davis told King, "Oh, well, yes. Or they would say things that you would know they would never want said to their daughter or their wife or their girlfriend or their niece and it's so humiliating."

She said she identified with Arnold's alleged grope victims, explaining, "I understand these women not coming forward because you're so humiliated. You really want to put it out of you mind. You want to just put it behind you but it's really always there."

Mrs. Davis did not explain how she managed to endure the company one of her husband's most prominent supporters, serial sexual predator Bill Clinton, while suffering through her grope flashbacks.

Let's see: Missus Davis gets a job as a stew. She knows what kind of a uniform she has to wear. She wears it anyway & gets groped.

Duh.

If Gray had any less class, he'd work in Hollywood. This man is such a soul-sucking jerk! No cheap shot is too cheap. This last one wouldn't get you a loan at Louigi's Pawn Shop.

All this talk of groping back in the '60s and '70s is starting to make me think I didn't get my share of the action.

Sharon Davis: I Was Groped, Too<p.Does her husband scream at her and abuse her like his own staff? (Just asking, since she seems willing to jump on any bandwagon going by.)

She's a victim. Of course, to a liberal everybody that's not a Republican is a victim of something and needs the government to fix it.

My cousin's nephew's oldest best friend's girlfriend was groped by Arnold Schwarzenegger 23 years ago, and she LIKED it.

Geez, what is it with these Dimocrats. They're making a Republican voter out of my wife, so I guess they should keep it up. Tomorrow will be the first Republican vote she's ever cast in her life.

And I was groped... just this past weekend.

I was in a cantina, eating wings and sipping some heffeweizen when a woman I'd met before grabbed me from behind, groped me, and kissed me on the cheek. I felt so... shamed.

I expect I can sue her in 17 years, right?

A bit of humour...

I was being fitted for my tux for my highschool Grad, the tux shop was owned by several good looking women...

The good looking seamstress asked me what side do you dress on?

I had never been asked that before...and wasn't sure what she meant...I looked at her clueless...until I figured out why she was asking...

Without my answer she just went for the inseam measurement and HELLO !!

I said, "whoa and I thought I was only getting a tux", her face turned a very dark shade of red and she apologised

I was groped too ya know...

Sharon Davis groped me once. I was a passenger on PSA, and she asked me if I wanted to join something called "The Mile High Club". I thought it was a special section of the plane, where the booze was cheaper and stuff, so I followed her...

When she got me in the bathroom, she grabbed me in a certain place and said "I have to check your package, sir."

I was humiliated, and felt so used, like I was a piece of meat. I never quite got over it, and I am still unable to go to the airport without feeling a sense of shame, almost as if I had asked for it...

Not to be mean or anything, but Greyout Davis seems, and comes across as, a bit of a closet gay.
And this makes it seem that she wishes.

On the other hand, the cynical part of me says that she's jumping onto the bandwagon and possibly claiming falsely to garner attention and sympathy.
That, and deflect view from Gray's own instances of violently shaking women and screaming hysterics.

I brushed into a woman today getting out of an elevator, I guess I should have been arrested and do prison time. and I danced with a woman at a wedding, I touched her waist, so I am a repeat offender.

Me too...I remember getting p!ssed not traumatized with humiliation. I'd flirt back if I was interested. Heck I've grabbed a butt or two of nice looking men myself...today that would be considered abuse.

Sharon Davis: "Being a Flight Attendent is perfect training"

She sure has changed her tune to suit the needs of the day. Excerpt follows:

She met Gray Davis while serving as a flight attendant on a plane traveling between Los Angeles and Sacramento that he frequently took when he was chief of staff for then-Gov. Jerry Brown.

Delayed a flight

The romance began in an unusual way: She chewed him out. Sharon chastised her future husband for holding up the plane because he was running behind schedule. Davis was taken by the woman who had the nerve to upbraid him. (mmm, makes me wonder if she also spanked him?)

Besides working as a flight attendant, Sharon Davis, who took journalism classes at California State University Sacramento, has operated her own public relations business and worked for a foundation. The couple have no children. O'Connor said she has seen the first lady overcome her initial reticence to speak in public and develop into a confident, politically savvy spouse. "She's grown a lot. She's used to be very shy," O'Connor said. Davis said she got a lot of good practice on airplanes. "Being a flight attendant was perfect training for being a political wife because no matter how much your feet hurt you could smile and be nice to people."

Ah, now you're bringing back memories of my wild and misspent youth...TOGA TOGA TOGA....

But I digress. I was groped when I worked in a factory, I was groped when I worked as a waitress--hell, I was even groped by patients when I worked in a nursing home ("It's a boob, George, not a handle....").

There's a big difference between being groped and sexual harassament. Sexual harassment doesn't even have to involve any sexual contact. It means there's a threat to one's employment in exchange for sexual contact, actual or proposed.

Hey this guy groped too if I recall (how scary is that! eee gads!)Didn`t he throw some waitress on a table or something and jump on top of her? Oh but that`s right, that`s not groping..That`s attempted rape, a Kennedy tradition, and that don`t count. Murder and the rape of women is ok as long as your a leftie..It was probably like that scene in Braveheart where that guy licks her face 'You remind me of my daughter'."Err--aabba...*hic* You errra-- remind me of *err*...my *errr*...first ...bottle ,,err *hic*.
