The #MeToo campaign has brought down a lot of powerful men, but in the case of Daniel Fierro, he is accusing a female lawmaker, Cristina Garcia, of touching him inappropriately. We have everything you need to know about this case on this Daniel Fierro Wiki page.
Daniel Fierro’s Education and Career
Daniel Fierro attended both Cerritos and Stowers Elementary Schools in California. Later he attended Whitney High School and then Yale University.
While attending Yale University, Fierro worked part-time shelving books and completing administrative paperwork. He was also appointed the executive director of the Elmseed Enterprise Fund, which is a non-profit consulting organization run by Yale students to help entrepreneurs jump-start their businesses.
After completing his education at Yale, Fierro worked for a financial services start-up company in Silcon Valley. He also worked as a senior field representative for Democratic Assemblyman Ian Calderon. His duties included assisting schools applying for grant money and building coalitions for cities and school districts.
Presently, Fierro is the owner and CEO of a public affairs consulting firm, which is focused on advising elected officials, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and companies in the private sector.
Fierro has also tried to obtain high-ranking positions within the ABC Unified School District school board in California. In 2013, he ran for a board seat but was defeated with only 11.9% of the vote.
Then in 2017, Fierro ran to become the Trustee Area 3 representative. He was defeated again with only 9.1% of the vote.
Accusations of Sexual Misconduct
Daniel Fierro has alleged that California Democratic Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia sexually harassed him. Ironically, Garcia is a strong supporter of the #MeToo campaign and has encouraged victims to speak out.
According to Politico, the alleged incident took place after a softball game in 2014, when Fierro was 25 and a staffer for Calderon. Garcia is accused of stroking Fierro’s back, groping his buttocks, and attempting to touch his crotch. Fierro said she appeared inebriated.
Garcia said in a statement that she did not recall doing anything wrong. But she added, “Every complaint about sexual harassment should be taken seriously and I will participate fully in any investigation that takes place.”
These allegations came to light after Fierro’s former boss Calderon referred the matter to an assembly panel that is now investigating Garcia.
If the allegations are proven to be true, it is possible Garcia will be forced to leave her post as an assemblywoman.
