Three lawmakers face formal complaints at the state Capitol alleging sexual harassment. We went to the districts these lawmakers represent to see what their constituents think about the situation. The overall message: sexual harassment shouldn’t be tolerated and there should be consequences should the allegations be proven true.

 

The National Republican Senatorial Committee and Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner are urging Alabama Democrat Doug Jones, who won the state’s special election, to fill a vacant Senate seat, to vote with the GOP.

TIME magazine’s Person of the Year for 2017 is the #metoo movement. The honor goes to the people behind the movement – "The Silence Breakers" – men and women who have come forward publicly with allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

[Update 12/14/17 1:15 p.m.] No charges will be filed against Rep. Lori Saine. The news was announced Dec. 14 by the Boulder district attorney’s office. The case was passed to Boulder because Denver’s district attorney Beth McCann worked closely with Saine when they were both state lawmakers. The Boulder district attorney’s office says Saine “totally forgot the firearm was in her purse and no criminal case against Ms. Saine can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.”
