Lant: Sexual harassment of interns should not be tolerated
Last week, the investigation into Sen. Paul LeVota's sexual harassment of an intern was concluded, with sufficient evidence to suggest that something occurred.
As a result, he has resigned his office.
These allegations are deeply troubling and should not be tolerated at any level.
We tried to pass a new ethics bill last session, but failed to get enough support for it. I am hoping to help craft a new bill that addresses behavior, as well as campaign finances.
Any time men and women work together, day in and day out, there is going to be some social fraternizing, but elected officials should hold themselves above any impropriety.
