Mark Dayton said Wednesday that though sexual harassment is a "pervasive" problem throughout society, "there should be consequences — swift and consistent consequences." The comments came in response to a reporter asking about how to "change the culture" that many have cited as allowing men to act in inappropriate — or worse — ways toward women they have power over.
