Senator Calls On Louisiana Secretary Of State To Step Down



Secretary of State Tom Schedler

 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — One of Louisiana's U.S. senators is calling on Secretary of State Tom Schedler to resign after the release of sexually themed emails Schedler sent one of his employees.

GOP Sen. John Kennedy said Friday that the emails, which were sent on a state account and published by The Advocate, show his fellow Republican "crossed the line and abused his position."

The recipient of Schedler's emails claims in a lawsuit that Louisiana's elections chief harassed her for years and punished her when she rebuffed him.

Schedler's spokeswoman said the pair had a consensual sexual relationship. The woman's lawyer denies that.

The secretary of state has refused to resign, but said he won't run for re-election next year.
