A high-level staffer in the California Assembly resigned this year during an investigation that found it likely he sexually harassed two female employees, according to documents released Friday.
The documents are the latest released by the Legislature after leaders promised to proactively disclose completed investigations where accusations against lawmakers or high-ranking staffers are found to be substantiated, meaning investigators find it "more likely than not" the behavior occurred.
The complaint against Rodney Wilson, who was chief of staff to Assemblyman Tom Daly at the time, claims he was drunk and slurring his words on the final night of the legislative session last year. Two female Assembly employees said he made sexually suggestive comments and leered at them, according to the documents.
An investigation by an Assembly human resources consultant found Wilson "likely" engaged in the behavior based on interviews with Wilson, the two women and two witnesses.
Wilson resigned from his job as Daly's chief of staff in January after the Assembly began investigating the allegations, the records show.
