THE CHAIRMAN of the Montgomery County Republican Committee is under investigation by county authorities for alleged sexual assault, sources with knowledge of the probe told the Daily News yesterday.
The GOP chairman, Robert J. Kerns, a partner in a Lansdale law firm, allegedly got drunk Oct. 25, the night after a major GOP power-broker dinner, and sexually assaulted a woman with whom he worked, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
No charges had been filed by the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office as of last night. Kerns, who is married and has two grown sons, did not return calls from the Daily News seeking comment.
"Somebody alleged that he was drinking and sexually assaulted her," said one source. "It was supposedly a woman that worked with him. It took place the following evening, 24 hours later - not associated with the county dinner."
Wotta bunch...this dinner was in celebration of healing of rifts which have plagued the Party for years. Nice job.
