Outgoing Republican Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin was sanctioned by the chamber's leadership in connection with a sexual harassment complaint. McLaughlin is accused of asking a legislative staffer to see nude photos of her, leaking the name of the woman and then lying about it.

Attorney and legal expert Paul DerOhannesian weighs in.
