A sexual misconduct scandal in the state Legislature has widened to include two male lawmakers. Women have accused Rep. Tony Cornish, R-Vernon Center, and Sen. Dan Schoen, DFL-St. Paul Park, of sexual harassment.
Schoen said in a statement that the allegations were either false or taken out of context. Cornish says he intends to fight accusations against him and has no intention of resigning.
The building allegations are raising concerns about just how pervasive sexual harassment is in the state House and Senate.
