Staffer: Assemblyman Mathis Wanted 10 Minutes Alone with Assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang
American Children First obtained a copy of a letter of resignation (see end of post) submitted by a former Mathis staffer to the Assembly Rules Committee.
Joel Rosales submitted the letter of resignation to the committee on June 25, 2015. We verified the authenticity of the letter with Mr. Rosales over the phone.
Rosales confirmed that he submitted the letter via the United States Postal Service and that he typed the wrong date at the top of the letter which can be viewed at the end of this post.
Mathis Makes Sexual Comments About Female Colleagues
In the letter, Rosales recounted his experience while working for Mathis and how the legislator would make sexual comments about female colleagues and other women working for various stakeholder groups.
Rosales claims that while up in Sacramento doing training for the newly elected Mathis, that they were reviewing photographs of elected members so that they could remember their names in case they passed them in the halls of the capitol.
"When I came across the picture of Ling Ling Chang the assemblyman made a comment saying he wouldn't mind having 10 minutes a lone (sic) with her."
Rosales recounted another instance when a female executive for a Visalia organization became the topic of conversation. Mathis said "he would love the chance to bend her over a desk, just five minutes is all he needed."
