Anyone providing information to independent investigators in a sexual misconduct case involving state Senator Stanley Rosenberg's spouse will not have their name publicly revealed.
That was the word on Thursday from the Senate ethics committee which is pursuing the probe.
The committee wants to know if Rosenberg, an Amherst Democrat and the former Senate president, broke any Senate rules related to the alleged misconduct by Bryon Hefner, from whom Rosenberg has since separated.
The action comes several days after Boston media outlets reported possible witnesses in the case weren't coming forward out of fear of being identified, and then targeted by Senate members.
