Hearing set for former state Rep. John Arnold

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A hearing is set for December 12 to determine whether former Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis should be reprimanded or fined for sexually harassing legislative workers.

The Legislative Ethics Commission said on Tuesday it has found probable cause that the harassment occurred.

Arnold resigned from the legislature last month after the allegations surfaced.

Yolanda Costner and Cassaundra Cooper, both LRC staffers, said Arnold touched them inappropriately and made vulgar comments.  Both women said Tuesday they were pleased with the ethics commission's decision.

Arnold, in his letter of resignation, said he had been "destroyed politically" and could no longer be an effective voice for his constituents.
