Eric Bauman, the chairman of the California Democratic Party, resigned on Thursday after several colleagues accused him of sexual misconduct.

“I have made the realization that in order for those to whom I may have caused pain and who need to heal, for my own health, and in the best interest of the party that I love and to which I have dedicated myself for more than 25 years, it is in everyone’s best interest for me to resign my position as chair of the California Democratic Party,” Bauman said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

In a letter last week, Daraka Larimore-Hall, the state Democratic Party’s third in command, accused Bauman of unspecified misconduct, referring to a “clear and escalating pattern of Chairman Bauman’s horrific and dehumanizing behavior.” Bauman, who is gay and a prominent figure in LGBTQ politics, then said he would take a leave of absence.

The pressure on Bauman intensified on Wednesday, when the Times published a story revealing some of the accusations, including “crude sexual comments” and “unwanted touching or physical intimidation in professional settings.”

The #MeToo movement claims another Democrat. Seems to happen quite a bit.
