Speaker Deleo: Legislatuve Rules Being Followed

An alleged incident of sexual  harassment at an orientation event for Massachusetts lawmakers at UMass  is being reported.  

Several officials who either witnessed the alleged  incident or were told about it confirmed the details involving State  Representative Paul McMurtry, a member of House Speaker Robert DeLeo's  leadership team.   They say he walked up behind a new legislator and grabbed  her backside at the event last month, according to The Boston Globe.  

A  special committee is being formed to investigate. 

House Speaker Bob Deleo says the legislative rules on such issues are being followed. 

In the meantime,  first-year state rep Lindsay Sabadosa of Northampton filed a new bill  yesterday requiring an independent committee to investigate sexual  harassment incidents on Beacon Hill.
