The Democratic leader of the Senate in Massachusetts, Stan Rosenberg, announced he supports the private investigation on the sexual allegations against his husband on Thursday.

 Rosenberg’s husband, Bryon Hefner was reported in The Boston Globe of sexually assaulting and harassing several men throughout the years. Republican Gov. Charlie Baker called for an immediate senate investigation on the matter. Rosenberg made a statement earlier on Thursday promising to remove any involvements related to the investigation since he is a conflict of interest.  The Boston Globe stated that no evidence was found to indicate that Rosenberg knew about the assaults when the incidents occurred.

Rosenberg has not stated if he is considering stepping down from his leadership position that he has held for almost two years. The Majority Leader Harriette Chandler, Republican Leader Bruce Tarr, and the Senate  have been authorized by Rosenberg to determine how the investigation will proceed.
