Michelle Ugenti-Rita says she told Rep. Shooter to stop, but he did not; Shooter says she’s lying
The “me too” sexual harassment movement is front and center at the Arizona State Capitol.
One lawmaker is coming forward to name names, and she spoke exclusively to our political editor Dennis Welch.
It was two weeks ago Michelle Ugenti-Rita claimed she was the victim of sexual harassment. At the time, she did not reveal who it was.
But now she is, and he’s a lawmaker who’s no stranger to controversy.
“I do feel compelled to want to come forward with someone who has been who has harassed me since I got here,” said State Representative Michelle Ugenti-Rita. “Currently he’s a former senator and he’s appropriations chairman Don Shooter.”
