Republican Official Was Vocal Opponent of #MeToo. Now Police Say He Killed, Dismembered Fiancée
A former San Francisco Republican official charged with the murder and dismemberment of his fiancée was a vocal opponent of the #MeToo movement, according to multiple reports.
Joseph C. Roberts, 42, was elected in 2020 for the San Francisco Republican Central Committee and claimed he was a victim of false accusations related to #MeToo, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
He also became known for defending men who claimed they were wrongfully accused of sexual harassment and praised Betsy DeVos — appointed Education Secretary by former President Donald Trump — when she announced new rules that strengthened the rights of due process for college students facing sexual misconduct allegations, the San Francisco Standard reported.
