McCaskill recalls sexual harassment as Congressional intern

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-MO, has been noting sexual harassment that she faced, both as a Congressional intern and later in the Missouri House of Representatives:

In interviews Tuesday following a hearing on the subject, McCaskill said that when she was an intern in 1974 she had multiple instances of sexual harassment.

McCaskill told NBC News, "I learned to avoid elevators because that is where you were captured."

In a rccent interview, McCaskill said when she was in the Missouri House of Representatives, she asked the Speaker of the House how she could get a bill out of committee. The speaker told her she should "bring her knee pads."
