We look at the news affecting Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-state

Since the allegations of sexual harassment against movie producer Harvey Weinstein became public, women, and men, have been speaking out about sexual abuse they have suffered, in the entertainment industry, corporate America, newsrooms, and in state capitals. Including Columbus and Frankfort. 

In recent weeks lawmakers in both the Ohio and Kentucky House have been accused of sexual harassment. And in Cincinnati, the president of the local police union accuses the city manager of intimidation.

Joining us to discuss this week's top stories are Cincinnati Enquirer Government reporter Jessie Balmert; Ohio Public Radio and Television Statehouse News Bureau reporter and producer Andy Chow; Tom Loftus, who covers the Kentucky Statehouse for the Courier Journal; Political writer for the Lexington Herald-Leader, Daniel Desrochers; Cincinnati Enquirer investigative reporter James Pilcher; and Enquirer Media Northern Kentucky reporter Chris Mayhew
