Letter Calls Out Culture Of Sexual Harassment At State Capitol

GUEST:

Melanie Mason, state government and politics reporter, Los Angeles Times

Transcript

The recent furor over the alleged serial sexual abuse by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has prompted conversations about sexual harassment in other places, including Sacramento.

Los Angeles Times reporter Melanie Mason covered the effort and joined Midday Edition on Tuesday to discuss what the group hopes to accomplish with the letter.
