DISTURBING: Jay Chen Led Motion to Reject Claim from High School Sexual Assault Victim 

Chen owes voters explanation for rejecting claim from student sodomized, lawsuit claims Chen “knew or should have known about the attacks”
 
A disturbing new story from the Washington Free Beacon reports that while serving on the Hacienda La Puente school board Jay Chen, “voted to reject a damages claim from a high school student who was sodomized with a pole as part of a horrific hazing ritual.”
 
From the story: 
 
Chen—who is now running for Congress in California’s 45th Congressional District—sat on the Hacienda La Puente school board during a high-profile hazing incident in 2011, which saw older members of a boys’ high school soccer team in the district sexually assault and sodomize their younger teammates with a sharp, javelin-like pole. In October 2012, one victim filed a claim for at least $25,000 against the district, alleging that Chen and other top officials failed to protect him. Chen led a motion to reject the claim in November 2012, board meeting minutes show.
 
The latest revelation follows other questionable decisions Chen made while serving on the school board including his continued support of Confucius Institutes as highlighted by Fox News this weekend. Chen has made his time on the school board one of his selling points during this campaign, yet when questioned on these issues he obfuscates or simply screams “racism” hoping people will stop asking questions.
 
After rejecting the claims, the school went on to settle with the student. If Chen knew the child’s story was true, why would he reject the claim? 
 
Unfortunately, he reverted to his standby tactic when his campaign spokesperson simply, “ignored questions regarding Chen’s vote to reject the victim’s claim and the lawsuit’s allegation that Chen knew or should have known about the attacks.”
 
“First it was Confucius Institutes, now we learn Jay Chen rejected the sexual assault claims of a high school student,” said Michelle Steel spokesperson Lance Trover. “Jay Chen owes families an explanation for this very troubling vote to reject the sexual assault claims of a high school student.”
