The Effect of #MeToo at the Arizona Capitol

In the wake of the expulsion of a state representative, we ask how the culture of the Capitol is changing.

The #MeToo movement culminated the Arizona Capitol with the State House of Representatives voting to expel Republican Rep. Don Shooter last week. An investigation into sexual harassment complaints began a few months earlier. Christopher Conover reports on how leaders plan to continue making changes to the legislature's culture. He spoke to Republican State House Speaker J.D. Mesnard and Mi-Ai Parrish, former publisher of the Arizona Republic, who came forward with inappropriate comments Rep. Shooter made toward her in 2016.
