TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The only woman in Florida's governor's race says she has a perspective that will allow her to address what she calls a sexual harassment epidemic in state government.
Democratic former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham outlined her proposals to address ethics problems in government on Thursday, including the creation of an ombudsperson to independently investigate harassment complaints.
She said she, like probably every woman at her press conference, has had a "me too" moment.
Graham said as a woman, she has an ability to talk about sexual harassment in a way that will resonate with everybody.
Another Democrat in the race also announced a proposal to address sexual harassment.
Businessman Chris King said in a Facebook video that he would create an office for victims' advocacy to investigate harassment and assault.
