Following Multiple Allegations of Sexual Harassment, House Republican Leadership Calls on Rep. Mike Zabel to Resign
HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania House Republican Leadership team, consisting of Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), Whip Tim O’Neal (R-Washington), Appropriations Chair Seth Grove (R-York), Caucus Chairman George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland), Caucus Secretary Martina White (R-Philadelphia), Caucus Administrator Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland), and House Republican Policy Committee Chair Josh Kail (R-Beaver/Washington), called on Rep. Mike Zabel (D-Delaware) to resign Thursday after multiple and continuing reports of his perpetration of serial sexual harassment.

“Rep. Mike Zabel should resign immediately.

“In 2018, our colleagues on the other side of the aisle said, ‘Anyone accused of a credible violation like this should resign their position.’ Now that a member of their caucus has been credibly accused of multiple and serious incidents of sexual harassment, it would be our hope that Democrats would join us in calling on Rep. Zabel to resign.

“Unfortunately, recent news reports and additional accusations have made it clear that generations of House Democratic leadership have known of Rep. Zabel’s actions but chose to ignore and cover up his behavior instead of taking action to protect the women in this Capitol.

“The fact that a serial predator was knowingly allowed to harass other women within the halls of this Capitol and elsewhere is shameful behavior.”
