Statement from Senator Cathy Osten Concerning Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty

Senator Cathy Osten (D-Sprague) today released the following statement concerning Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty:

“Once again, we are learning of another instance of harassment in the workplace. We must do more as a society to protect everyone in the workplace. I commend the brave young woman for coming forward and sharing her story. It is my hope that each time an instance of abuse is brought to light that we will move one step closer to eliminating it.

“As a long time advocate for the fair treatment of women, and as someone who has fought against the culture of harassment, Congresswoman Esty should have known better and done better. Indeed, this incident demonstrates a shocking lack of judgement on the part of the Congresswoman, and therefore I believe Congresswoman Esty should resign her office.”
