Excerpt from my latest opinion editorial in Political Vanguard:
With so much having been written about sexual harassment lately, it’s hard to come up with anything new to say, other than: “If you all could knock it off, that would be great.”
If only it could be so.
We know that it’s pervasive in Hollywood. We’ve learned that from the Weinstein scandal. It also appears it’s also pervasive in the news world. But that is not all.
Now we have politicians who are in the spotlight for their misdeeds.
The very sad part for me, as an Assemblywoman, is that I’m watching a scenario play out in Sacramento much like what I saw happen during my time in the U.S. Navy. Back then, sexual harassment victims had no place to turn for so very long.
When I arrived in Sacramento, I learned that state workers in California have whistleblower protection. It was written into law years ago.
What I didn’t know was that a very specific group of state workers were denied that protection. Who might you ask? Legislative staffers that’s who.
