Another abusive Democrat has been exposed… in more ways than one. One of California’s youngest assemblymen, Democrat Matt Dababneh, has just been accused of sexual harassment and what he is accused of doing in front of a female lobbyist is completely disgusting.
Dababneh, who was considered one of the state Democrat Party’s up-and-coming stars, has been accused of corralling a female lobbyist in a bathroom, then pulling down his pants and masturbating in her direction. The incident is said to have happened at a wedding party in Las Vegas in January of 2016, according to Breitbart News.
The victim is lobbyist Pamela Lopez who joined a press conference to announce her claims.
“No, I will not touch you,” Lopez said she told Dababneh when he exposed himself to her in that bathroom.
Lopez originally appeared with several other women to accuse members of the California State Legislature of sexual harassment, but at that time she did not reveal Dababneh’s name. She has since changed her mind and decided to come right out about who she was talking about last week.
Apparently she thinks Dababneh has done this to other women, so she wants to embolden other victims to come forward of they so choose.
Lobbyist Pamela Lopez says she believes @MattDababneh has harassed other women as well.

Tellingly, after the accusations, Dababneh deleted all his social media accounts. His Twitter and Facebook accounts went bye bye down the Internet memory hole over this last weekend.
Lopez described what happened to her:
He had begun masturbating. I stared backing up and he moved toward me while he was masturbating and, in explicit terms, told me to touch his genitals while masturbating. And I thought, what do I do, what do I do? Make it explicitly clear that I do not want to be here and that there is no misunderstanding. So I said several times: No, I will not touch you. No, I will not touch you.

Lopez also said that she didn’t come forward for many months because she was afraid that Dababneh would retaliate and that her job would be put in jeopardy.
“For nearly two years, I have lived in fear that I will be shunned or retaliated against if my professional community learns that I was sexually assaulted by a lawmaker,” she said. “And that few caused me to remain silent, instead of seeking justice through formal channels in the legislature.”
Lopez also affirmed that Dababneh’s attorney threatened her not to come forward.
Breitbart noted that Dababneh isn’t the first CA assemblyman to be accused in the last few weeks.
Last week, Democrat Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra (D-Pacoima) announced he was resigning immediately after six women made sexual harassment claims against him. Fellow Democrat State Sen. Tony Mendoza (D-Cerritos) was stripped of his committee leadership positions over a series of sexual harassment allegations against him.
Also last week, victims of sexual harassment testified about their experiences to a group of Republican and Democratic legislators who agreed that the Golden State’s system for examining sexual harassment by lawmakers is deeply flawed and needs to be changed.
Every day we see more and more proof that it is the Democrats, not the Republicans, who are engaged in a “war on women.”
