Iowa Democrat Accused of Inappropriate Sexual Conduct by 3 Women

In an explosive new report by the Des Moines Register, three women have come forward to accuse state Sen. Nate Boulton, a Democrat candidate for governor, of sexual misconduct.

Here is what the women allege happened:

The woman who has accused Boulton of grabbing her buttocks three years ago is lawyer Sharon Wegner of Des Moines. Her account was corroborated by a friend, Ash Bruxvoort, who said she witnessed the incident. Both are Democrats.

Jessica Millage, now an attorney from the Des Moines area, said Boulton repeatedly rubbed his erection against her without her consent during social gatherings while the two attended Drake University Law School.

The third accuser, who described an incident similar to Millage’s from about the same time frame, declined to be named for fear of professional repercussions. She and Millage are both Republicans.

Boulton, 38, did not deny the allegations. “I don’t have the same recollection,” he told the Des Moines Register. “But I am not going to offer any additional context to this, other than to say if someone’s perspective is that it was inappropriate and I crossed a line and I misread a situation in a social setting, I do apologize.”

But he did withdraw from the race Thursday morning:

Iowa’s gubernatorial primary is June 5, and a recent poll showed Boulton in second place, 11 points behind businessman Fred Hubbell. The winner will go on to face incumbent Gov. Kim Reynolds (R-IA) in the general election.
