Second Oregon state senator files sexual harassment complaint against Kruse
PORTLAND, Ore. —
A second Oregon state senator has now accused colleague Jeff Kruse of sexual harassment.
Sen. Elizabeth Steiner-Hayward, D-Portland/Beaverton, filed the complaint.
She says Kruse hugged her too close and for too long, put his hand on her thigh and sat so close their legs touched.
The Roseburg Republican also faces allegations from Sen. Sara Gelser, D-Corvallis.
She filed a formal complaint last week.
