Another woman has joined a groundswell of sexual harassment allegations against a prominent Republican state lawmaker.

Tara Zika, a 26-year-old business development director at risk management firm Ashton Tiffany, said Shooter, 65, made inappropriate sexual comments and gestures at her several times over the course of one day at the League of Arizona Cities and Towns conference in August 2017.

Zika reached out to Arizona Capitol Times after previous reporting of women who experienced harassment from Shooter, who chairs the Arizona House’s budget committee.

In total, nine women have alleged some type of inappropriate behavior by Shooter, ranging from sexually charged comments to unwanted touching. The women include three lawmakers, lobbyists, a former Capitol Times intern and the publisher of the Arizona Republic, Mi-Ai Parrish.
