Rep. Speier talks about unanimous passage of sexual harassment bill

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Congresswoman Jackie Speier, D-Calif., joined ABC7's Kristen Sze on Friday to discuss the unanimous passage of her sexual harassment bill, which holds lawmakers financially accountable for their behavior.

This comes amid a highly publicized dispute between President Donald Trump and his former attorney Michael Cohen over alleged hush money payments to women such as adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
