Sacramento lobbyist Pamela Lopez on Monday formally accused San Fernando Valley Assemblyman Matt Dababneh of pushing her into a bathroom and masturbating in front of her in 2016. Lopez had first shared the story in October as the wave of sexual misconduct disclosures rolled through politics, media and Hollywood. At the time, she refused to say who it was, but said she was persuaded to come forward to protect other women after an Assembly hearing last week on sexual harassment policies.
The political sharks in Bocanegra's district smell blood in the water. The small protest that gathered outside his Valley office the other day calling for his resignation? Well, many of them are political aspirants in this northeast Valley district who have previously run for city council, school board and the state legislature, usually without success. Even Patty Lopez showed up. Lopez surprised everyone when she beat Bocanegra in 2014 and temporarily deprived him of a second term.
Billionaire and environmental activist Tom Steyer has been coy about whether he plans to challenge U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein next year. But on Friday he committed to running at least one political campaign: impeaching President Trump. Well, not a political campaign exactly, since impeachment is not something that can be decided by a vote of the people. Voters can recall governors (and in California we have done so fairly recently), but it takes Congress to impeach a president.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
