The safety and wellbeing of women and children is of high importance to me. As a survivor of child molestation and domestic violence in my home, I take laws related to sexual crimes and physical violence very seriously. A victim must be believed and supported-by immediate family and friends, as well as the state. I am very concerned about reports that Pennsylvania lawmakers are settling harassment lawsuits with taxpayer funds.
If elected, I pledge to thoroughly review existing laws regarding sexual crimes and domestic violence to ensure they make crystal clear that Pennsylvania will not tolerate those who abuse or intimidate the innocent. If they don’t exist, I will present them. I will also present legislation that bans use of taxpayer funds to settle any issues concerning sexual harassment.
