Rep. Tom Malinowski said he was concerned by claims on the website of Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick’s law firm that said it would seek to discredit sexual assault accusers.

The page hosting that language, and several others, have since been pulled, though Spanish versions still appear on the site.
Bramnick said Monday that an outside firm was responsible for the language. He did not provide a timeline for their return.
