SACRAMENTO — Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, one of the most prominent voices for women’s rights in the California legislature, has been accused of groping a young legislative staffer in 2014.

The former staffer, Daniel Fierro of Cerritos, told ... that Garcia, D-Bell Gardens, cornered him after the annual Assembly softball game while he was cleaning up the dugout. He said Garcia, who appeared to be drunk, stroked his back, squeezed his buttocks and tried to grope him before he was able to leave the situation....
The allegations rocked the Capitol, which for months has been grappling with a movement to stamp out a culture permissive of inappropriate sexual behavior — often acts perpetrated by powerful men against junior female staffers and lobbyists.....

It’s kind of a Greek tragedy that they’re taken down by the exact kinds of allegations that they’re fighting against.”

It's two men accusing her now.

Apparently, she isn't at her best with a few drinks in her.

Interesting how she's dealing with it: Following the very procedures that she was trying to push through in the legislature. Voluntarily escalated it to an investigatory committee. And also took an unpaid leave of absence for the duration of the investigation.

“Every complaint about sexual harassment should be taken seriously and I will participate fully in any investigation that takes place,” said Garcia in a statement sent to reporters in response to inquiries Thursday. “The details of these claims have never been brought to my attention until today. I can confirm that I did attend the 2014 legislative softball game with a number of members and my staff. I can also say I have zero recollection of engaging in inappropriate behavior and such behavior is inconsistent with my values.”

I thought the joke about witch hunts is that they didn't find any real witches. Is the OP suggesting the charges here are false?

Acer,

The joke is that witch hunts and revolutions (hence the guillotine reference) always eat their own, sooner or later.
