McSally Won't Comment On Sexual Harassment Allegations Against GOP Members

Congresswoman Martha McSally says she’s not commenting on allegation of sexual harassment against politicians like Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore.

In a statement, McSally says, “This place is crawling with dirty old men, creeps and predators — it’s not my job to remove them all. It is my job to clean up the process and ensure that taxpayers aren’t paying for it.”

But the congresswoman isn’t weighing in on several specific accusations against members of her party, including those involving Roy Moore or Arizona Congressman Trent Franks who’s resigning because of a House Ethics Investigation into comments he made to staffers about being a surrogate for him and his wife.

But, speaking to Fox Business recently, McSally did say Democrat John Conyers should resign and called him a dirt bag.

“What he did was disgusting, we should have zero tolerance for sexual harassment, this looks like it’s a repetitive abuse of power toward his subordinates who trusted him," she said.

McSally has signed onto legislation that would prevent public funds from being used to settle claims of sexual harassment in Congress.

Will Stone grew up with the sounds of public radio. As a senior field correspondent, he strives to tell the same kind of powerful stories that got him into the business — whether that means trudging through some distant corner of the Sonoran Desert or uncovering an unknown injustice right down the street. Since joining the KJZZ newsroom in 2015, he has covered political scandals, fights over the future of energy, and efforts to care for some of Arizona’s most vulnerable communities. His pieces have also aired on national programs like Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Here & Now and Marketplace. Before coming to KJZZ, he reported for public radio stations in Nevada and Connecticut. Stone received his degree in English literature from Haverford College, where he also wrote about the arts and culture scene in Philadelphia. After graduating, he interned at NPR West in Culver City, California, where he learned from some of the network’s veteran reporters and editors. When he doesn’t have a mic in hand, Stone enjoys climbing mountains, running through his central Phoenix neighborhood and shamelessly promoting his cat, Barry.
