STEVE LEBSOCK, REPRESENTATIVE FOR COLORADO’S DISTRICT 34

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Democrat Steve Lebsock, Representative for District 34 in Colorado, said he will disclose his decision to resign or not to the Colorado Legislature, after Thanksgiving. He also must define whether he will continue to aspire for the State Treasury in the upcoming elections in November 2018. Crisanta Durán, Speaker of the House, together with other representatives has demanded his immediate resignation.

Matt Gray, also a democrat and a representative for District 33, has threatened to initiate a process of expulsion against Lebsock, if the resignation doesn’t happen soon. Lebsock was removed from his chairmanship of the House Local Government Committee. His misfortunes come stem from a denounce formulated by Faith Winter, a colleague legislator and fellow democrat. Winter presented the case before the local authorities. 

Winter affirms that Lebsock harassed her during a social gathering that took place at the end of the legislative season in May 2016. Since Winter went public with her testimony, nine women indicated that Lebsock made unwanted and persistent sexual advances, including inappropriate conducts at the State Capitol. The identity of some of these women is still being protected. Winter and the other denouncers joined the petition for Lebsock’s resignation.

Internal discipline

Durán emphasized that “sexual harassment and assault are not acceptable” and requested a change to the rules on how to respond to these cases in the legislature. Another three members of the Colorado Legislature have been signaled as sexual predators. They are Democratic representative Paul Rosenthal, and Republican senators Randy Baumgardner and Jack Tate. They were denounced by members of their own teams at the local congress.
