Two Women Accuse California Asm. Matt Dababneh Of Sexual Harassment

California State Assemblyman Matt Dababneh

The Assembly will hire an outside law firm to investigate the claim by Lopez, a Sacramento lobbyist.

In a written statement, Dababneh denied the incident and said Lopez apparently is coming forward "for her own self-promotion".

"As alarming as it seems to be, I must do everything that I can do as such that other ladies and different partners can do everything that they can do", she said. He stood blocking the door and began to masturbate and move toward me, urging me to touch him. "It was easy to get rid of me if somebody wanted to do that".

Lopez has not filed criminal charges, but has filed a report to the Assembly Rules Committee.

Dababneh has strongly denied the allegation.

KCRA contacted the offices of Dababneh and has been referred to his lawyers.

Lopez detailed the encounter in a New York Times story last October, but did not name Dabeneh.

Giants, Cardinals 'in the Dark,' Longshot Team Out on Giancarlo Stanton
Stanton could ask that the opt-out be moved to a different point in the contract, as a condition for waiving his no-trade clause. In fact, previous suggestions were that the Giants themselves might be favored to land the slugger.

Dababneh was elected to the Legislature in a 2013 special election after working for eight years as a district chief of staff and senior aide to U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman.

Dababneh's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. When she went to the bathroom, she wrote, he blocked the door, dropped his trousers and urged her to touch him.

Dababneh is a Democrat who represents the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County. Beforehand, he was head of staff for Sherman, and filled in as a staff part for previous Secretary of State John Kerry's 2004 presidential crusade.

"We are severely traumatized because we are so aware of how powerless we are", she said.

"I'm choosing to have hope that that process will work", Lopez said. "And that happens to so many women".

"Ken Cooley encouraged ladies who have been sexually pestered inside the California political group to venture forward and address the council and look for review through their procedure", Lopez said at a Monday question and answer session.
