State Senate Retail Forum Postponed Amid Rosenberg Investigation

  • Senate President Stan Rosenberg should temporarily step aside from his leadership post

State Senate President Stan Rosenberg told other senators that he would relinquish his responsibilities as president temporarily amid a probe of allegations against his husband, Bryon Hefner.

Lawmakers have to determine whether to appoint an acting or permanent senate president to replace Rosenberg.

WBUR's Steve Brown joined All Things Considered from the State House to discuss.

Chandler will continue in the post through the course of an investigation into Rosenberg and his staff. Chandler said she is not interested in serving in the post after the investigation.

Following the almost eight-hour Democratic caucus, the Senate voted to elect Democratic Majority Leader Harriette Chandler as acting Senate president. "I want to ensure that the investigation is fully independent and credible, and that anyone who wishes to come forward will feel confident that there will be no retaliation".

Chandler said the Senate admires the courage of those who came forward to tell their stories. The man, who works on Beacon Hill, alleges that Hefner groped him at a fund-raiser in 2015, one of a string of similar allegations that Abraham recounted. The men say they didn't report the misconduct at the time because they feared backlash from Rosenberg. "This is important not only to gather information but to understand the nature of their experience and to provide access to the supports and services we offer every survivor through our offices".

"To listen to people talk about the fact that they felt they had no place to go and nobody they could talk to because of the power centers that were involved and the messaging that had come from Bryon Hefner was incredibly distressing for me", Baker said. In a statement to reporters Friday during which he described himself as "shocked and devastated" by the allegations, Rosenberg insisted that Hefner, who plans to seek inpatient treatment for alcoholism, has "no influence over policy, the internal operations of the Senate, or any Senate-related business".

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, through a spokeswoman, called Rosenberg's decision to step down "the right one", and Democratic U.S. Sen.

Conley also said today they are prepared to open a criminal investigation into the allegations leveled against Hefner.

The top Democrat of the Massachusetts Senate stepped aside Monday after his husband was accused of sexual misconduct by several men.

The scenario that unfolded on Monday was without modern precedent in the Massachusetts Senate.
