Journalist discusses accusations against Arizona lawmaker

Six women have come forward accusing state representative Don Shooter of sexual assault, including two fellow legislators.

Accusations against Rep. Shooter range from inappropriate touching to showing up uninvited at Rep. Michelle Ugenti-Rita’s hotel room with a six-pack of beer. Rep. Shooter has denied all accusations and has requested an investigation into the matter by the House Ethics Committee/Counsel.

Rachel Leingang, a reporter for Arizona Capitol Times who has been following the story, joins Arizona Horizon to discuss the scandal.
