Yesterday, the Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives released a long-awaited report dealing with sexual harassment allegations against Republican state legislator Don Shooter, who has been accused by nine women of leering comments about their bodies, suggestive jokes, and inappropriate touching and grabbing.
Many elected officials, both Republicans and Democrats, are calling for Shooter to step down or be removed from office. But so far, Governor Doug Ducey, the leader of the Arizona Republican Party, has refused to take a side — despite his many speeches about how he’s determined to stand up for women and against harassment.
Ducey needs to join his fellow Republicans in calling for Shooter’s resignation, now.
