Intern claims state senator sexually harassed her, he denies

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri state Sen. Paul LeVota says allegations that he sexually harassed an intern are unfounded.

The Democrat from Independence says a Senate report released Wednesday shows there is no proof he did anything wrong.

The Senate investigated after two University of Central Missouri interns abruptly left an internship for LeVota this legislative session.

The report says an intern claimed a pattern of sexual harassment from the senator including “unwelcome messages and explicit requests for sexual activity.” The report says a sexual harassment complaint filed by the intern alleges she was retaliated against when she declined the senator’s sexual advances.

LeVota denied the claims. He told The Associated Press that he has no plans to resign.
