A Sacramento lobbyist has accused Assemblymember Matt Dababneh of sexual assault.
Sacramento lobbyist Pamela Lopez said in a Sacramento news conference that Dababneh pushed her into a bathroom during a 2016 party at a Las Vegas hotel and masturbated in front of her.
The allegations came after weeks of rumors about Dababneh as cases of sexual harassment have come to light in California politics and other industries.
Lopez initially declined to name Dababneh when she described the encounter to Capital Public Radio and others earlier this fall.
"Ken Cooley urged women who have been sexually harassed within the California political community to step forward and speak to the legislature and seek redress through their process", Lopez said at a Monday press conference.
