LANSING, Mich. — A Republican state lawmaker will be subject to a sexual harassment investigation for telling a young female reporter she could have “a lot of fun” with a group of high school boys visiting the Michigan Capitol, legislative leaders said Wednesday.
State Sen. Pete Lucido, 59, of Macomb County’s Shelby Township, issued a brief apology earlier in the day, after the Michigan Advance journalist published a report detailing their interaction outside the Senate chamber on Tuesday.
Allison Donahue, 22, said she asked Lucido for an interview to discuss his participation in a Facebook group that was shut down after some members advocated violence against female Democrats. He said he could talk after honoring roughly 30 students from De La Salle Collegiate, an all-boys Catholic high school in suburban Detroit from which Lucido graduated.

“You should hang around! You could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you,” he said. The teens laughed, according to Donahue’s first-person account in the Advance, a nonprofit news site that covers politics and policy.
