Report: Rep. Scotty Campbell violated House ethics rules after sexual harassment claim
District 3 Rep. Scotty Campbell of Mountain City told a state House reporter he will not resign following a published report of an ethics violation involving a female intern.
News Channel 5 of Nashville first reported the March 29th result of the Workplace Discrimination and Harassment Committee that Campbell violated policy. Campbell told the station that the conversations with the woman were consensual and private.
The report said thousands of dollars were spent to move the intern out of the apartment complex where Campbell also resided, acquire hotel accommodations for her for the remainder of the General Assembly session, and to have her furniture shipped back to her family home.
Campbell has not been publically reprimanded for the violation and it is not known if he has lost any committee membership or his title as Vice Chair of the Republican House Caucus.
