Statement on House Representative Resignation

From Missouri Democratic Party Chair, Jean Peters Baker: “The findings of the House Ethics Committee are disheartening and leave me disgusted with this continuing conduct in our Capitol by elected officials. Sexual harassment is not tolerated no matter the harasser’s political affiliation. While I had hoped this era of abuse of power had passed us, today’s news demonstrates we have much more work to do. As an elected official, I know we must earn the public’s trust and fight to keep it. I’m hopeful this resignation is one small step in earning that trust.”
