Months after the #MeToo movement first swept the nation, the media and Capitol Hill, allegations of sexual harassment and assault aren’t done reverberating through state politics.
A new analysis from the Associated Press found that, nationwide, there are at least 25 state lawmakers running for re-election or another office who have been accused of sexual misconduct.
The article goes on to state the following:
Among those lawmakers, 15 have already won primaries and advanced to the November general election, including seven who did not face challengers.
In Kentucky alone, seven state lawmakers have been accused of sexual misconduct, and four have settled accusations with female aides.
In California, four state lawmakers who have advanced to the general election have faced allegations, including two female lawmakers.
But many candidates taking on the accused lawmakers told the AP that they are not planning to address the allegations against their opponents during the race, and instead hope to keep the focus on voter issues.
