The Associated Press reports on interviews with congresswomen about their brushes with sexual harassment in Washington. Example:

“When I was a very new member of Congress in my early 30s, there was a more senior member who outright propositioned me, who was married, and despite trying to laugh it off and brush it aside it, would repeat. And I would avoid that member,” said Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif. She added that she would warn other new female members about the lawmaker in question, but she declined to identify him, while saying he remains in Congress.

No Arkansas legislator has behaved inappropriately toward women, right?

Stay tuned, The Arkansas Times has a "Me Too" project coming.
