FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The head of the Legislative Research Commission has resigned in the wake of an internal review that found no impropriety in the way his office handled sexual harassment complaints.

Bobby Sherman said in a letter of resignation Friday that he had been considering leaving for a while, but he wanted to stay around through the end of the internal review of the way his office had handled sexual harassment complaints brought by two legislative staffers against a former lawmaker.

That lawmaker, Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis, resigned last week.

A special legislative committee has been appointed to review the allegations against Arnold. That panel could recommend that Arnold be censured by the House if the allegations are proven.
