California Dems post big numbers as the list of sex criminals grows

Screenshot 2017-12-17 at 23.09.51.pngThe California Democratic Party’s East Bay director has resigned under pressure following allegations that he acted in a sexually aggressive manner toward a 23-year-old woman at a party function in San Mateo County last month and raped another female party member last year.

Craig Cheslog, 46, of Lafayette, also resigned from his seat on the Acalanes Union High School District board and was fired from his job at San Francisco-based Common Sense Media.

He is a former aide to state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.

The woman who accused Cheslog of being sexually aggressive at a party is Maddy Dean, the daughter of Solano County Office of Education board president Dana Dean. Maddy Dean revealed her identity to the Los Angeles Times and has since written a public Facebook post about her decision to come forward.

“When a highly personal trauma becomes talked about in this kind of way, it quickly becomes about much more than you. … I came forward to protect others, so this has always been about more than just me,” she wrote. “Young people deserve an inclusive and safe environment in which to engage in politics.”

Cheslog did not respond to phone messages Saturday afternoon, and no one came to the door of his Lafayette home when a reporter went there. His lawyer told the Bay Area News Group in an email that her client did nothing wrong and that an objective investigation would clear him.
