PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Senate is expected to release a report commissioned by its Ethics Committee into allegations of workplace harassment against freshman Republican Sen. Wendy Rogers on Monday.
Committee attorney Chris Kleminich announced at the conclusion of a committee hearing last week that he was finalizing his investigation and his report would be given to the committee and publicly released on Monday. Thursday’s lengthy hearing was mainly held behind closed doors as Kleminich briefed the committee’s three Republicans and two Democrats.
Rogers was accused by her former legislative assistant in January of berating him, making comments about his weight and other issues. Michael Polloni Jr. also accused the state senator of taking his belongings and breaking an Eagle Scout plaque.

Rogers made a written response to Ethics Committee and called the allegations “a complete fabrication by an outgoing, brand new employee who worked only one official day for the state of Arizona after the swearing in of senators.”
