Exclusive: Evelyn Yang reveals she was sexually assaulted by her OB-GYN while pregnant

Washington(CNN)Evelyn Yang was reading letters that voters had sent to her husband, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, and suddenly stopped in her tracks.

A woman wrote that she had decided to press sexual assault charges against an investor in her company, because she had heard Yang talk on the campaign trail about how female entrepreneurs don't get enough support.

In fact, she says her own story of sexual assault was so secret that she never even shared it with most of her family, including her parents.

1. It is a very sad story

Hopefully justice will be done in some form for the numerous victims of this “charming gentleman.”

2. 6 more women have come forward after seeing Evelyn speak on this.

I have no words. It's too much.

3. 15 more women have come forward since Evelyn's brave interview.




I seriously disgusted by the few Trump supporters and ... others ... who tried to politicize what Evelyn has done.

Really completely lost all respect for some people over this.
