Another intern scandal brewing in Jefferson City

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Missouri Senate will conduct a review of a second former intern’s claims that Sen. Paul LeVota made sexual advances toward her.

Republican Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey announced Thursday that an ethics panel will investigate and make a recommendation to the full Senate.

LeVota didn’t immediately return a request for comment from The Associated Press on Thursday.
The announcement came after former intern Taylor Hirth said, as first reported by The Kansas City Star, that LeVota sent her inappropriate texts in 2010. Hirth told the AP he invited her to his apartment.

A Senate report Wednesday detailed another former intern’s sexual harassment complaint against LeVota.

Hirth says LeVota should resign. The Missouri Constitution allows the Senate to expel members with a two-thirds majority vote.
