SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Bay Area Congresswoman Jackie Speier is the first member of the House of Representatives to publicly share her story of sexual assault.

The congresswoman took to Twitter sharing a story about being attacked by a congressional staffer.

“I was working as a congressional staffer – The Chief of Staff held my face, kissed my face and stuck his tongue in my mouth so I know what it’s like to keep these things hidden deep down inside,” she says in the video above, which she posted online.

Congresswoman Speier, who represents the Peninsula, says she is sharing her story as a part of the “#MeToo” campaign.

It is a campaign started after Hollywood director Harvey Weinstein was accused of years of sexual misconduct.

Speier tweeted that she hopes by sharing her story, others in Congress will be inspired to do the same.
