PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) An Oregon state senator filed a formal complaint Wednesday against another senator involving accounts of sexual harassment and asked for his expulsion from the legislative body in a letter that contained detailed descriptions of the alleged behavior.

In the five-page complaint, Sen. Sara Gelser says Sen. Jeff Kruse touched her breasts, put his hand on her thigh during a committee hearing, slipped his fingers under the hem of her skirt, kissed her on the cheek and whispered in her ear so closely that it left her ear and cheek wet.

An investigation completed this week after Gelser made an informal complaint turned up evidence that the Republican senator from Roseburg had behaved inappropriately toward other women, Gelser wrote.

At least 15 other women have reported problems with Kruse, including another female senator, Gelser, a Democrat, wrote.
