Lawmaker Files Complaint On Statehouse Security Procedure; Google Cleveland Impact Challenge
A two-term state lawmaker from Northeast Ohio has filed a formal complaint after she says she's been subjected to greater scrutiny and questioning by security as she tries to enter the statehouse to do her job.
State Represenative Emilia Sykes of Akron says that the increased attention of security does not equally impact her colleagues, who are largely male, and white. Then, Google's social activism powerhouse brings a challenge to Cleveland to help generate ideas to help the economy.
