Five women accuse Seattle’s David Meinert of sexual misconduct, including rape

According to a report on KUOW, five women accuse Seattle’s David Meinert of sexual misconduct, including rape that happened in 2013.

This was not the first time Meinert was accused of sexual assault. In 2007, police received a complaint of rape against Meinert that prosecutors declined to charge.

In total, five women shared stories with KUOW alleging a range of disturbing behavior by Meinert between 2001 and 2015. They include two alleged rapes (one was not reported to authorities, and prosecutors declined to charge the other), a woman who said she had to physically push Meinert out of her apartment, a woman who said he stuck his tongue down her throat — and the woman at Sunset Hill Park, who said he choked her as he masturbated onto her skirt.

The women were motivated to speak out by the #MeToo movement, others who have been treated similarly by powerful men, and their own frustration watching Meinert ascend in Seattle circles with a progressive reputation they believe is undeserved.
