Shortly after sexual harassment allegations against Senate Independent Democratic Leader Jeff Klein emerged, numerous people started calling for an independent investigation. But under current law, there are few avenues available for launching a probe.

The leader of the Independent Democrats in the New York State Senate denies that he forcibly kissed a former staffer, and says he intends to remain as leader of the breakaway Democratic faction.

Yale Sexual Misconduct Reports Reach New High

Feb 18, 2016

The number of complaints of sexual misconduct at Yale University is at its highest level since the school started releasing semi-annual reports in 2011.

Yale started issuing the reports as part of a voluntary agreement with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights.

The agreement followed a complaint alleging that a sexually hostile environment existed at Yale, and that the university had not responded in a prompt and adequate manner.

The latest report released this week includes 78 complaints that were brought to the university’s attention.
