A former western Kentucky lawmaker is not expected to face sanctions from the House over allegations that he sexually harassed legislative staffers. A House investigative committee voted 3-2 along party lines today to adjourn without taking any action against former Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis. The committee concluded it has no legal authority because Arnold has already resigned.
Following today’s meeting House Speaker Greg Stumbo issued a statement reading “The committee will make a report to the full House. Any action taken regarding the report will be a decision of the entire body.”
