New Mexico lawmaker vows not to resign amid misconduct probe
Aug. 03, 2018
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico state lawmaker who recently lost in the Democratic primary amid a sexual harassment investigation says he won't resign.
And State Rep. Carl Trujillo says he may even run for office again.
The Nambé Democrat told the Albuquerque Journal this week he plans to finish his term which ends this year and will continue to fight the case against him.
Investigators said last week there is credible evidence Trujillo sexually harassed a lobbyist on two separate occasions.
A bipartisan subcommittee is planning on holding an open hearing on the matter before a larger panel of legislators.
That committee could then recommend disciplinary action against Trujillo to the full Legislative Ethics Committee.
