Meeting set to review sexual harassment complaints

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - A special legislative committee investigating sexual harassment complaints against a western Kentucky lawmaker will meet for the first time on September 17 at the Capitol Annex in Frankfort.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo announced the meeting on Friday.

Stumbo said the committee is expected to elect a chairman and set up procedures for conducting the investigation into two complaints filed against Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis.

Stumbo appointed five lawmakers to the committee last week. The panel could ultimately recommend Arnold's censure or expulsion from the Legislature.

In the complaints, the female legislative workers alleged that Arnold had touched them inappropriately and had made vulgar comments.

Arnold didn't immediately return a phone call to his legislative office Friday.
