Politics on Alyssa’s mind

Politics on Alyssa’s mind

Actor-activist Alyssa Milano says she may consider running for a political office. When asked about a possible bid for political office at the BlogHer Health Conference on Friday, Milano said, “It’s something that I think about”. The actor, who played an important role in bringing the #MeToo movement to Hollywood, said politics is no different from what she is doing currently as an activist. “I’d really love the staff. I’m doing this by myself now. I want that person where I’m like, ‘Can you talk to me about immigration in a way that I don’t have to go through so much research?’ “I would love it in that respect, but I don’t even know what trajectory looks like. Do I start on a state, local level? If anybody has any ideas, tweet me. 2028? Maybe. It’s something that I think about, for sure,” she added. The actor also addressed issues related to #MeToo and what to do about men who have sexually harassed or abused people but continue to find work. “Those men aren’t just going to go away. Other companies will hire them, so what are we going to do to make sure that those companies actually have some protocol in place so that the women that also work in those other companies feel safe? Let’s focus on that,” she said. —PTI
