Women Accuse Democratic Assemblyman Of Sexual Harassment And Assault

Assemblyman Matt Dababneh D Van Nuys,has been accused of sexual assault and sexual harassment

Another lawmaker, Sen. Tony Mendoza, D-Artesia, was stripped of his legislative leadership positions pending an investigation into harassment allegations.

In a written statement, Dababneh denied the incident and said Lopez apparently is coming forward "for her own self-promotion".

Ken Maxey, a friend of Dababneh who says he was with the lawmaker at the party for a "majority" of the night, told the Los Angeles Times he did not recall Dababneh using the bathroom, adding that the layout of the room where the party was located would make it unlikely for such an incident to go unnoticed.

Lopez has not recorded criminal allegations, but rather has documented an answer to the Assembly Rules Committee.

Dababneh's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"I had panic attacks for years as a result of some really brutal sexual harassment in my work environment when I was 26.it didn't involve any physical assault, but it broke my mental health".

"Before Ms. Barker's article, I had never observed or been recounted, any wrong conduct by Assemblyman Dababneh, or any slander of ladies", Sherman told HuffPost in an announcement.

Dababneh now represents California's 45th Assembly District, covering much of the San Fernando Valley in Southern California.

"We are severely traumatized because we are so aware of how powerless we are", she said. She said he also asked her to touch his genitals. Previously, he was chief of staff for Sherman, and worked as a staff member for former Secretary of State John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign. "And that happens to so many women". "I look forward to clearing my name". "It was a terrifying experience", she wrote. "I need young ladies who are maybe in school or in secondary school pondering working in governmental issues some time or another not to need to encounter everything that I have encountered".
