Syms: grow up and stop the bad behavior at the Arizona Legislature

By Maria Syms | Paradise Valley Independent

(Editor’s note: Opinion pieces are published for discussions purposes only.)

Misuse and abuse of power and the public trust is wrong.

Maria Syms

Sexual innuendo and objectification of peers, colleagues, staff and the public through common jokes, offensive remarks, unwanted touching, sexual misconduct with subordinates and retaliation have no place in the professional workplace. Period.

And yet, here we are caught up in a swirl of accusations, rumor and panic, attempting to address and remediate bad behavior by adults who are supposed to know better. Not only is this bad behavior morally wrong and demeaning to all parties, especially at the Capitol, it is a distraction that should rightfully and finally be pushed to the margins of all professional forums where men and women engage.
