The California assemblywoman who's led the #MeToo movement in Sacramento is speaking out for the first time about the sexual harassment allegations against her, and her remarks - aired on The California Report on KVCR yesterday (Tuesday) - are causing more controversy. All of this occurs as the investigation into those allegations continues. Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler reports.
