"I condemn Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s recently released 2005 taped comments he made on Access Hollywood about women in the strongest of terms. Not only are his comments demeaning to women, they also reference sexual assault. Unbelievably, Trump said that he could grab a woman as he pleases, just because he is a 'star.' Domestic violence and sexual assault, in any form, are unacceptable and cannot be tolerated. Because of this, and the many other degrading statements Trump has said about women throughout the campaign, I agree with many in his party that Trump should drop out of the race."
"I also call on Republican Assemblymember David Hadley to demand that Donald Trump drop out of the race. So far, he has not condemned the tape. What’s worse, he even attended a Trump-sponsored event at Trump National Golf Club on Friday, the same day that the tape was released. But then again, Hadley isn’t exactly a friend to women."
