Special Committee to Investigate Harassment Complaints Against Western Kentucky Lawmaker

The eight-member committee could recommend censure or expulsion of state Rep. John Arnold of sturgis.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- House Speaker Greg Stumbo will appoint a special committee to investigate sexual harassment complaints against Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis.

Stumbo filed a petition with the House clerk on Thursday, a procedural move that allows the formation of the eight-member investigative committee that could recommend censure or expulsion of Rep. Arnold.

The move came on the heels of allegations by three legislative workers that they were sexually harassed by Arnold. Arnold didn't immediately return a phone call to his legislative office on Thursday.

Stumbo said the allegations against Arnold have become a distraction and that he knows of no other way to deal with the issue.
