Florida Democratic Party Chairman Resigns Over Allegations Of Belittling Women

The chairman of the Florida Democratic Party, Stephen Bittel, resigned on Friday following accusations that “he would belittle and make suggestive remarks to women,” which resulted in a hostile work environment.

Over a half-dozen women had come forward to complain about Bittel’s behavior, calling it “creepy” and “demeaning.“

Florida Politics reported:

“Allison Tant, the state party’s former chairwoman, told Florida Politics that at least seven women came to her to complain about the inappropriate and demeaning behavior they endured during his tenure. Tant said numerous women left their jobs because of his behavior.”

Bittel, a millionaire and South Florida developer, did not deny the allegations against him in his resignation statement.

“When my personal situation becomes distracting to our core mission of electing Democrats and making Florida better, it is time for me to step aside,” Bittel said in a statement.
