sexual harassment

"Dettelbach for Attorney General"

A state Senator, a state Representative and a Senate chief of staff all resigned within a month with no other information other than it was due to “inappropriate conduct.” But no further information was officially offered. A candidate for statewide office wants to require more information about such allegations.

Two Republican state lawmakers and a Democratic Senate staffer have resigned in the last month – all over what’s been termed “inappropriate behavior”. This raises the question of whether there is a culture at the Statehouse that somehow attracts or encourages behavior that makes people feel uncomfortable or afraid. 

There has been an escalating flurry of rumors at the Statehouse ever since a senator was accused of sexually propositioning a staffer. Since then, complaints of various types of harassment against three representatives have surfaced. But the top House leader wants to draw the line between gossip and fact.
