Another state lawmaker is facing down allegations that he harassed a female lobbyist. Democrat Lou Lang has been accused of threatening and blackballing Maryann Loncar while she was working on the medical marijuana bill passed years ago. She says that Lang also put his hand on her lower back and made inappropriate comments. After the allegations were made Lang resigned from being the House Deputy Majority Leader. Lang says that he’s ready to have a full investigation into his behavior and paints Loncar as a woman who didn’t achieve what she wanted out the legislative process so now she’s lobbing these accusations against him.
Loncar also alleges that Lang was close to accepting part of a $170 million dollar bribe that she and another person disrupted and stopped. Lang says nothing like that happened.
