Longtime Utah state Sen. Gene Davis is under investigation by the Senate after a social media post from a former intern alleged he sexually harassed her during this year’s legislative session.
“The entire Senate and I take these comments seriously. After reviewing recommendations from the legislative general counsel and human resource administrator, I have directed an independent investigation be initiated to evaluate these allegations,” Senate President Stuart Adams said in a statement Friday.
He added that the Senate “condemns and does not tolerate workplace harassment. It has no place in any political, professional or personal setting.”
