Former lobbyist accused of sexually harassing interns, employees

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A judge has issued a restraining order blocking a former lobbyist accused of sexually harassing interns and employees from coming within 1,000 feet of the Missouri Capitol.

A Cole County judge granted the restraining order Thursday against David Poger. Calls to Poger were not immediately returned.

He was registered as a lobbyist in 2011. The House and Senate claim he still comes to the Capitol.

A hearing is scheduled for March 14.

The restraining order comes a week after a Republican House member resigned after admitting to having an affair.

A Republican House speaker left office last year after admitting to exchanging sexually suggestive text messages with an intern. And a Democratic state senator also resigned last year amid allegations of sexually harassing interns.
