State Senator Resigns After Sexual Harassment Report

State senator Tony Mendoza resigned his seat Thursday morning, as senators were considering a vote on whether to suspend him over sexual misconduct allegations. A state senate investigation had found the Artesia Democrat had “more likely than not” engaged in a pattern of unwelcome flirtation and sexually suggestive behavior with several staffers, interns and a lobbyist.
