California Assemblyman Accused of Sexual Misconduct

A Sacramento lobbyist has accused Assemblymember Matt Dababneh of sexual assault. 

Pamela Lopez had previously described an incident in which she says a sitting lawmaker cornered her in a bathroom and exposed himself to her, but never named the lawmaker until Monday out of fear of retaliation.

Lopez’s attorney said her client was sent a cease and desist letter on Friday, trying to prevent Monday’s announcement. 

Former Capitol staffer Jessica Yas Barker was also present at Monday’s press conference, and said Dababneh regularly made inappropriate comments.
