NYS Ethics Panel Criticized At Hearing On Sexual Harassment

Originally published in WSHU on February 21, 2019.

Senator Alessandra Biaggi, who is herself a survivor of sexual abuse, also admonished JCOPE for its handling of sexual harassment cases. She says the commission needs to train investigators on how to better handle trauma victims. And she put the commission on notice, saying that things are changing.

“The world is sick of seeing politics as usual,” Biaggi said. “I think that these elections have proved that. And I really think that we owe it to everybody in this state to do better.”
