Andrew Yang's wife reveals she was sexually assaulted by her doctor during first pregnancy

  Andrew Yang's wife reveals she was sexually assaulted by her doctor during first pregnancy Evelyn Yang, wife of 2020 presidential hopeful Andrew Yang, opened up on Thursday about the sexual assault she faced by her OB/GYN when she was pregnant with their first child. Yang revealed to CNN that she was a victim of Dr. Robert Hadden in 2012 and how exams began as "routine" but changed after a few months."It started with inappropriate questions around how intimate I was with my husband, sexual activity, just very inappropriate probing questions that were unrelated to my health," Evelyn Yang said.

As the Rev. Wendy Hamilton was leaving Union Missionary Baptist Church in Waterloo, Iowa, she turned to see some commotion in the choir.

"I looked up and said, 'Is Andrew up there singing with them? I guess we're not leaving yet. Ok, Amen!'"

What happened next went viral, because Andrew is Andrew Yang, the longshot, "I'll try almost anything" Democratic presidential candidate. Nearly 2 million people have viewed a clip of Yang singing and swaying with the choir on Sunday. Nearly as many seemed to have opinions about it.

  Andrew Yang's wife says doctor sexually assaulted her while pregnant The New York gynecologist accused by dozens of women pleaded guilty to criminal sexual act in the third degree and one misdemeanor count of forcible touching and was ordered to give up his medical license.Evelyn Yang and others have been critical of the way that Vance handled that case."It's like getting slapped in the face and punched in the gut," Evelyn Yang told CNN, referring the plea deal. "The DA's office is meant to protect us, is meant to serve justice, and there was no justice here."Vance's office stands by its handling of the case against the gynecologist.

Choir enter. I need you to say it amen When your dream is about to die amen Knowing that God is not a man amen He just can't lie amen In spite of what amen What the devil does amen Know you've got a word amen That has come from above amen Faith must be amen Must be what you say amen

Our answer should be Amen ! Let the Church say Amen Song Leader Sings . you Lord God has spoken, so let the church say amen . Choir enter. I need you to say it Amen When your dream is about to die Amen Knowing that God is not a man

Some prominent black leaders laughed, rolled their emoji eyes or posted memes of Forrest Gump fumbling through a gospel song. Some accused Yang of pandering. One said it was more "cute than cringe" while joking that an "official ruling" would be issued after next the "black people conference."

The episode is a reminder that religious communities have lots of rituals and rules, many of them unspoken and inscrutable to outside eyes -- including presidential candidates.

Whether it's Yang putting on a choir robe, Donald Trump dropping money in the Communion plate or Bernie Sanders reportedly ignoring volunteers while visiting a black church in South Carolina, candidates are scrutinized for how well they understand and respect those rituals.

Non-verbal cues, like how comfortable a candidate seems while visiting a church, can be more important than policy prescriptions.

Churches, especially black churches, are places where people can lay their burdens down and be their true selves, said the Rev. Leah Daughtry, a prominent pastor who has advised candidates on reaching religious voters.

"We want to see if you are comfortable with us being who we are."

Singing is one thing. Wearing a choir robe is another

Hamilton, who is African American, was in the Iowa church as the Yang campaign's faith outreach director. She told CNN that the candidate's moment in the choir, which lasted all of two minutes, was spontaneous, genuine and joyful.

The choir invited Yang to sing with them, she said. One of its members offered him a red and blue robe. So Yang -- a candidate who has crowdsurfed and stuffed whipped cream in volunteers' faces -- did what he does. He joined in.

Hey, everyone . I'm here with another YouTube gospel video. So, when I did this one, it reminded me of my great-uncle Melvin who used to sing this song in my old church . I'm proud to say that at 81, Uncle Melvin is still going strong, and still sings this song.

Amen , Amen lifting up their hands, They bowed their heads and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground. When we receive a word from the Lord our answer should be Amen ! God has spoken So let the church let the church say say amen . Vocals and choir .

"It was wonderful," Yang told a gaggle of reporters afterward. "Because in my mind it's always better to be participating in an activity than observing it." Yang also told reporters he felt it would be rude to decline the robe.

Daughtry gave Yang points for clapping on the beat. But he crossed a subtle line, she said, when he donned a choir robe.

"I don't know who on his staff let him put the robe on. I would have stopped him," said Daughtry, a former top official in the Democratic National Committee and pastor at House of the Lord Church in Washington.

"It's not your choir. It's not authentic."

Hamilton dismissed the idea that Yang was pandering.

"Andrew Yang does not pander. Real recognizes real. That was a spiritual moment."

Daughtry, a board member with Black Church PAC, encourages candidates to visit African-American congregations. But when they do, she said, they should mind these three rules: Be yourself, keep your remarks short and don't leave until the service is over.

"We don't like people who leave early," she said.

Yang has some black celebrity endorsements but is struggling to win broad support

Raised in a secular household by Taiwanese immigrants, Yang said he appreciates the power of religious communities. The former tech executive also said his wife, Evelyn, is Christian, and their two boys attend Sunday school. His own spiritual life, Yang has said, "is a work in progress."

Some prominent black celebrities are backing the outsider candidate. Comic Dave Chapelle will be campaigning for Yang in Iowa and actor/musician Donald Glover is a creative consultant. And, with endorsements from The Fat Boys and Eric B & Rakim, Yang has the coveted "iconic 1980s hip hop bands" constituency well covered.

But Yang has struggled to connect with most African-American voters, lagging far behind Democratic frontrunners Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Just 3% of registered black Democratic voters nationwide support his nomination, according to a recent Washington Post-Ipsos poll.

The night before Yang's appearance at the Baptist church in Waterloo, Hamilton told him to scrap some of his talking points. She advised instead him to get personal and talk about how his parents were once on a fixed income.

Gabbard, Yang, other Democrats slam Clinton remarks on Sanders as petulant, divisive

  Gabbard, Yang, other Democrats slam Clinton remarks on Sanders as petulant, divisive Democrats including 2020 presidential hopefuls Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang were firing back at Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night, hours after her remarks about Bernie Sanders in an upcoming documentary were published by The Hollywood Reporter. Although Clinton appeared to walk back the remarks Tuesday night, her claims about Sanders – a leading contender for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination who battled Clinton for the 2016 nod – that “nobody likes him” and that “nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” were characterized by critics as petulant and potentally divisive for her party.

I like a choir , and I think a church without one might be missing something. I agree that church choirs seem to be dying out, and that’s a shame. I hope more people will read this blog and maybe spark a “comeback” in good choral singing . People say they want it but THEY WILL NOT support it.

Choir enter. God has spoken Let the church … let the church … say … say amen … amen . Make this your response… amen To whatever He says … amen From the healing of your body… amen To the raising of the dead… amen No matter how you feeling… amen Or how your world is reeling

She also told him to be himself. Congregations are pretty good at sniffing out insincerity, she said. Hamilton would know, she's a pastor herself at a Metropolitan Community Church in Maryland and a truancy case worker public schools in Washington.

"The black church is one of the toughest crowds in America."

Twitter can be just as tough.

Eric McDaniel said he sides with those who accused Yang of pandering.

"It's like showing up at a Mexican restaurant in a sombrero," said McDaniel, an expert on the political mobilization of black churches, "or a mom trying to use teenage slang."

McDaniel said the incident points to a larger problem among liberals: They often look clumsy, uncomfortable or culturally illiterate around African Americans.

Take the choir robe. In many black congregations it's a big deal to join the choir. You can't just throw on a robe and start singing. You have to earn it, McDaniel said.

Even Daughtry, the pastor, said she wouldn't feel right wearing her church choir's robes. But she didn't think Yang was pandering.

"Pandering is when you show up before election day and we haven't seen you in twenty years."
