Sen. Warren: Former colleague chased me around his desk
BOSTON — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is joining the growing chorus of women talking about their experiences with sexual harassment in the wake of allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The Massachusetts Democrat shared a story from when she was a "baby law professor" during a videotaped interview session with three other female senators that aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press."
Warren says a senior faculty member had asked her to stop by his office one day. When she did, he slammed the door and "lunged" for her. He then chased her around a desk, trying to get his hands on her.
She says she managed to flee and told only her best friend about it.
Warren says speaking out is a way to show solidarity and say it isn't the victim's fault.
