DENVER, CO- Below is a statement of support from Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman for Senator Grantham’s plan to address sexual harassment allegations:


“Sexual harassment is always wrong. It has no place in any work environment and most certainly not in our Capitol. Our lawmakers hold the public trust and must be held to the highest ethical standards.  Behavior that demeans and disrespects people is not acceptable. Sexual harassment has long lasting consequences for the victims and victims must be given a voice.
