Republican Governor of Missouri Indicted for Felony

MeToo Movement Lawmaker Accused of Groping Former Staffer

California Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia has been accused by a former male staffer of sexual misconduct. The California state lawmaker has used her high-profile to champion the hash-tag movement, MeToo, which encourages victims of sexual impropriety to come forward. A former legislative staffer has accused Garcia of groping him in 2014 at the annual Assembly softball game inside a dugout. The staffer never reported the indicate, however, he mentioned it to a former boss recently, who reported the incident to the Assembly Rules Committee. The staffer is not the only man to accuse Garcia, as a lobbyist has accused her of accosting him last May with a graphic sexual proposal at a fundraiser.
