A Senate committee probing workplace harassment allegations at the state Capitol formally recommends the suspended Rapid City lawmaker at the center of controversy be reinstated.
The Senate Select Committee on Discipline and Expulsion voted unanimously Wednesday to adopt its final report, drafted overnight, urging the full Senate allow Sen. Julie Frye-Mueller to return to her legislative office following a week-long suspension. However, the report also censures the senator for allegedly “engaging in harassment” involving an employee of the Legislative Research Council. The report also recommends discipline for Frye-Mueller in the form of limiting her access to legislative support staff, restricting her ability to the LRC through its director or the director’s designees.
Frye-Mueller has not issued any public statements since testifying to the committee Tuesday evening.
