Meg Whitman's Son, Griff Harsh, Accused of Rape in 2006

Political candidates’ children are usually considered off limits, but at a certain point does the accumulated evidence of their bad behavior become relevant to a campaign? Gawker has the latest on Griff Harsh, the son of Meg Whitman: In 2006, while a student at Princeton University, where his mother donated $30 million in 2002, Harsh was accused of rape by a fellow student. The university handled the investigation internally and ultimately chose to let Harsh continue his education. Weeks after he was cleared, he was arrested for injuring a woman’s ankle in California during a bar brawl.
