State Senator Resigns

Oregon Republican Senator Jeff Kruse of Roseburg has resigned after a months long investigation that concluded he sexually harassed two female senators and groped many other women working at the Oregon Capitol.

Kruse continues to deny the allegations and issued a statement on Tuesday saying he would not step down. However his statement released Friday says he is stepping down so his “colleagues may focus on serving Oregonians without distraction.”
