Frye-Mueller complaint involves 'childhood vaccines and breastfeeding'
Select committee named to investigate complaint
The workplace harassment complaint that led to the suspension of a Rapid City lawmaker this week alleges inappropriate behavior, involving a legislative staffer, childhood vaccines and breastfeeding, according to leadership in the South Dakota Senate.
The office of Senate Majority Leader Casey Crabtree, R-Madison, released more details into what led to the suspension Friday afternoon.
“Senate Republicans received a detailed report from an (Legislative Research Council) staff member alleging inappropriate behavior and harassment related to private maternal matters, including childhood vaccines and breastfeeding, which took place in the LRC office inside the State Capitol Building,” the release says.
