So much for the #MeToo movement in Sacramento. A bill introduced by Assemblyman Steven Choi (R-Irvine) was killed which would have banned taxpayer-funded settlements for lawmakers accused of sexual misconduct.
According to the votes, not a single Democrat supported the Assembly Bill 1094.
The bill was not brought forward with 16 in favor and 45 voting against it with another 19 Assemblymembers not casting a vote. Click here to see the vote.
According to a Statement by the California Assembly Republicans on Facebook, they said with this vote, Democrats sided with sex predator lawmakers instead of victims and taxpayers (who are still on the hook for paying out settlements).
