Nevada state Sen. Mark Manendo, D-Las Vegas, resigned from his Senate seat Tuesday after the conclusion of an investigation into claims of sexual harassment.
Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford, D-Las Vegas, ordered the investigation after complaints against Manendo were brought April 27, according to a statement from the state Senate Democratic Caucus.
“The investigator concluded that Senator Manendo violated the Legislature’s anti-harassment policy; had engaged in multiple and repeated instances of inappropriate, offensive, and unacceptable behavior towards female staffers and lobbyists; and had attempted to interfere with the subsequent investigation into his conduct,” said a statement said.
Manendo submitted his resignation letter to Gov. Brian Sandoval on Tuesday.
