Exposing "Harvey Weinsteins" in the California Legislature


American Children First was the first to publicly name and accuse an elected official of engaging in a sexual assault in the wake of the fallout stemming from the Harvey Weinstein scandal that rocked Hollywood. On October 19th, we launched Operation Vice Corral and submitted a letter to the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office requesting an investigation into allegations that Assemblyman Devon Mathis had sexually assaulted one of his unconscious staffers.

This page will document our blog posts and news articles reporting on our allegations against Assemblyman Mathis and other elected officials.​ Though we were the first to name names, we are working on naming other names. We also believe that mainstream media outlets and potentially other "new media" entities will be exposing other elected officials very soon.
