SF Gate reports:

A Sacramento lobbyist broke her silence Monday, naming the lawmaker she said cornered her in a bathroom last year and masturbated in front of her.

In a press conference with her lawyer in Sacramento, Pamela Lopez accused Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, D- Woodland Hills (Los Angeles County), of pushing his way into a bathroom with her last year and trying to get her to touch his exposed genitals.

Lopez initially declined to name the lawmaker, but she said Monday that leaders in the Assembly have assured her and other victims that their allegations will be taken seriously.

“There is strength in numbers and I want women to know that you can lawyer up and there are good people who will represent you and protect you,” Lopez said. “I’m putting this in the hands of the Legislature. Matt Dababneh has abused his power.”

Dababneh denies the incident took place.

“This letter is written to give you formal notice that Mr. Dababneh unequivocally denies the occurrence of the incident of sexual harassment that you allege, or any other act of sexual harassment by him against you, at this time,”Dababneh’s Patricia Glaser laywer said in a statement Monday.
