During a campaign event in California on Saturday, former President Barack Obama praised a Democratic congressional candidate accused of sexual misconduct.

“Then you got Gil Cisneros running to make sure our kids can access the same kinds of ladders of opportunity that this country and the Navy, the United States Navy gave him. More Navy medals for his service than he has years in politics,” Obama said.

“Spent those years since he was in the Navy fighting for our veterans and for our kids in public schools. And I should add that he worked with Michelle on her Reach Higher Initiative to help more kids access higher education. We could not be prouder of Gil.”

Cisneros, who is running 39th District against Republican Young Kim is accused of propositioning Democratic activist and documentary filmmaker Melissa Fazli at the California Democratic Party Convention earlier this year.
