Nevada’s legislative leaders are accepting the resignation of Democratic Senator Mark Manendo as chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee.
Manendo’s resignation comes as more individuals are stepping forward claiming he sexually harassed them this legislative session.
The longtime lawmaker has been under an independent investigation for harassment since allegations sprang forward about two weeks ago.
This is also the third time the Las Vegas Democrat has been accused of misconduct. However, through an attorney, Manendo has maintained his innocence.
