California Assemblyman Matt Dababneh (D-Woodland Hills) is resigning effective Jan. 1.
He sent his resignation letter to Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon on Friday.
Dababneh has been accused by two women of sexual harassment and assault.
Lobbyist Pamela Lopez says Dababneh pushed her into a restroom and masturbated in front of her while they were attending a party for mutual friends in Las Vegas in 2016. Democratic activist Jessica Yas Barker says Dababneh repeatedly harassed her while she worked with him in a congressional district office in 2008.
In his letter Dababneh denies the allegations. But he says he can no longer serve his district effectively. He says he will still cooperate with the Assembly Rules Committee investigation into the complaints.
