PHOENIX – House Democratic Leader Rebecca Rios, D-Phoenix (District 27), released this statement regarding the investigative report on sexual harassment allegations against Representative Don Shooter (R-13):

“Harassment, sexism and lewd behavior should not be tolerated in the People's House or any Arizona workplace. While our members are still individually working their way through the report, our initial feeling is that it paints a detailed and disturbing picture of pervasive sexual harassment and sexism on the part of Rep. Shooter. The Speaker's recommended sanctions are well-deserved, however we are still discussing as a caucus whether they go far enough. We applaud the courage of all the women and men who came forward to share their experiences or information for the investigation, and the Speaker for outlining a fair and thorough investigative process.”
