State Democratic Party adds to calls for lawmaker to resign

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Leaders of Pennsylvania’s Democratic Party on Friday added to calls for a state senator to resign over accusations of sexual misconduct.

The statement came a day after the Senate’s top Democrat said an inquiry into complaints about Sen. Daylin Leach, D-Montgomery County, found a “lengthy pattern of troubling behavior.”

Among the claims explored in the lawyer's inquiry is a woman's complaint that she was 17 in 1991 when Leach allegedly lured her into his home and pressured her for oral sex. Leach denies it ever happened. The investigation also looked into reports of harassment and offensive jokes.

A summary of the findings said there are "certain factual inconsistencies" in the woman's recollection of what happened but said the claim could likely only be resolved if the parties testified under oath.
