Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli said Senate President Steve Sweeney ought to have self-reported a 2010 incident involving Communications Workers of America staffer.
“I think that’s always the right thing to do,” Ciattarelli said. “The second-best thing to do is apologize for your conduct once it has been reported.”
Fran Ehret told a working group on sexual harassment and misogyny in New Jersey politics that Sweeney “pointed his finger at me and he said ‘If you were a man I would take you outside right now and kick your ass.'”
Sweeney apologized for the decade-old incident after it was reported by NJ Advance Media.
