A California Democrat who resigned last year amid sexual misconduct allegations — including that he allegedly masturbated in front of a female lobbyist — has transferred more than $1 million into a lieutenant governor committee account, according to a campaign finance report filed Tuesday.
The filing suggests that former state Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, 37, a Democrat who represented Woodland Hills, could be plotting a political comeback, the Sacramento Bee reported.
Dababneh stepped down last December after being accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. He denied the allegation and said at the time that he wanted to focus on clearing his name, the paper reported.
Lobbyist Pamela Lopez has accused Dababneh of pushing her into a hotel restroom in Las Vegas and masturbating in front of her, the report said.
