Candidate For Utah Democratic Chair Accused Of Sexual Misconduct
Several female members of the Utah Democratic party are accusing a candidate for chairman of sexual misconduct.
In a letter dated May 25 to current party chair Peter Corroon and executive committee, the women allege Rob Miller kissed, grabbed and propositioned women without consent.
Miller is the party's former vice chairman and treasurer and is running for state chair.
In a Facebook post, Miller denied the allegations and suggested the letter was released in an effort to undermine his candidacy ahead of the Democratic organizing convention on June 17.
The letter was signed by seven current and former female Democratic party officials, volunteers and delegates and distributed widely to news media and social media channels on Friday.
The women said in their letter that Miller’s conduct was “unbecoming of party leadership, and inappropriate for any person who seeks a position of power over others.”
In a statement, state chair Peter Corroon said Democrats are fully committed to a safe environment for their members. He said per party rules, complaints are referred to their Judicial Standing Committee.
