BREAKING: Navy vet says GOP House candidate DeMaio sexually harassed him

Republican congressional candidate Carl DeMaio has just been accused of masturbating in front of yet another male colleague at the office.

The running total is now four alleged public masturbation incidents that DeMaio stands accused of. San Diego insiders are now calling the scandal “MasturGate.”

DeMaio is in a tight race against incumbent Democratic congressman Scott Peters for the US House seat in California’s 52nd congressional district (San Diego).

The race is statistically tied, with DeMaio 1 point ahead of Peters in the latest survey. The election is this coming Tuesday, November 4.

DeMaio’s latest accuser is Justin Harper, 25, a five-year Navy veteran who left the military in December of 2012, and started working on DeMaio’s congressional campaign in February of 2014.

Harper says he quit in July of this year, two days after he claims DeMaio walked out of a bathroom stall with his fly open and his penis in his hand.

“I was at the urinal, and (DeMaio) came from the stall that was closest to the urinal and was kind of just standing there hovering,” Harper said. “I turned around and realized that it was Carl. He had his pants up, but his fly was undone, and he had his hand grasping his genitals.”

DeMaio is openly gay. Harper is straight.

You’ll recall that last month DeMaio faced a similar charge of public masturbation from a second former campaign aide, Todd Bosnich, who is openly gay:

One morning last April, Bosnich said he arrived early at campaign headquarters and DeMaio called him back to his office.

“I came over to his office, door was open. And he was masturbating,” Bosnich said. “I saw his hand, his penis in his hand and he had a smile on his face. And as soon as I came over he was looking at me.”

There was no mistaking what was happening, he said.

And before Bosnich, DeMaio faced two additional allegations of publicly masturbating in a city hall bathroom. None of the four public masturbation allegations has yet been proven.

What’s particularly interesting about the latest two accusers is that they both worked on DeMaio’s campaign. That means they’re not Democrats, they’re Republicans.

And they’re not just Republicans, they’re dyed-in-the-wool DeMaio supporters. They’re the farthest thing you can get from “last-minute Democratic dirty tricks.” DeMaio’s accusers are hard-core Republicans.

It’s also interesting that Harper is straight, and a Navy vet. You see, a common refrain from DeMaio’s campaign throughout the campaign  has been how poor Carl DeMaio is a helpless victim of the big bad Democratic gay mafia.

But in the latest two incidents, DeMaio is accused of sexually harassing two former male employees, both Republicans, and one straight. So much for the lavender mafia.

Carl DeMaio is seriously beginning to creep me out. The only silver-living to him winning on Tuesday is the possibility that yet more alleged victims come forward and mar the GOP’s triumphant takeover of Congress with a growing, and increasingly embarrassing, sex scandal.

Here’s a half-hour conservative radio interview with DeMaio accuser Bosnich. As a reporter, and lawyer by training, I have to say that Bosnich sounds awfully credible. As noted above, he’s a Republican through and through, and this isn’t his first job working for a Republican politician. This interview, by the way, was not aired by the conservative radio station. Nonetheless, it was eventually leaked. It’s quite detailed.
