GA. GOP Lt. Gov. candidate squashes sexual harassment probe with Legislative immunity from FISA requests

Three days after the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that a longtime lobbyist had accused a powerful state senator of sexual harassment, the General Assembly’s lawyer said it didn’t have to publicly release any information about such complaints.

The AJC filed an Open Records Act request Thursday asking for any information on possible sexual harassment complaints involving the Georgia Senate or its staff, and documentation about how complaints could be filed and handled.

Legislative Counsel David Bundrick responded that the General Assembly “is not an agency” of the state and “not subject to Georgia laws pertaining to open records.”

Because of big increases in the number of major sexual harassment accusations against celebrities and politicians last fall, Georgia lawmakers began reviewing their policies for dealing with those cases.
