Bevin: Officials who have settled sexual harassment claim should resign

Gov. Matt Bevin has a message for officials involved in claims of sexual harassment: Resign.

Bevin said Saturday that “any elected official or state employee who has settled a sexual harassment claim should resign immediately.”

Bevin held the conference at the state Capitol just days after the Courier-Journal reported Republican House Speaker Jeff Hoover had settled a sexual harassment allegation outside of court, ABC News reported.


"These alleged actions, which haven’t been denied, are reprehensible, indefensible and unacceptable. Any elected official or state employee who has settled a sexual harassment claim should resign immediately," Bevin said. "The people of Kentucky deserve better. We appropriately demand a high level of integrity from our leaders, and will tolerate nothing less in our state."
