September 28, 2018

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — An 83-year-old New Jersey state senator has revealed that she was groped and forcibly kissed by a visitor in her home when she was just a girl.

Sen. Loretta Weinberg says she never told anyone about it until now.

Weinberg, the Senate majority leader, posted Friday about the encounter on Facebook.

The Democratic lawmaker says she was 13 and remembers the “EXACT” time and “EXACTLY” where she was when it happened.

She says she’s not confused.

Weinberg named her alleged assailant, a frequent visitor to their house when she was growing up. He is believed to be now deceased.
