The Arizona Democratic Party’s Executive Director Herschel Fink issued the following statement following Rep. Don Shooter’s expulsion from the Arizona House of Representatives:
“Unequivocally, today’s decision by the Arizona House of Representatives is a powerful statement for the brave women who came forward, and a lesson for all those who engage in this unacceptable conduct.
“As an organization, we believe we need to hold our elected officials to a higher standard, regardless of political party, and Rep. Don Shooter was never the exception. His actions, long history, and defiance to the very end is indicative of the fight our state, and country will face when battling against the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment in our everyday lives.
“Rep. Don Shooter, #timesup! Your time intimidating Arizonans in the People’s House is over.”
