BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- This past weekend two Republican south central Kentucky state legislators' names were mentioned in connection with the sexual harassment claim against Kentucky GOP House Speaker Jeff Hoover.
Tonight we have a statement from one of them.
Republican state representatives Jim DeCesare of Bowling Green and Michael Meredith of Oakland are the two local legislators mentioned in the claim. We have not yet heard back from Meredith, but when I contacted DeCesare, he gave me the following statement:
"No comment, but I can say I've done nothing to be ashamed of, and welcome the independent investigation and its findings."
DeCesare has been a state representative since he unseated Democratic incumbent Roger Thomas in 2005.
