The Latest: Misconduct Probe Of California Senator Concludes

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A California senator accused of sexual misconduct will learn next week whether he’ll face formal disciplinary proceedings. A team of lawyers has finished its investigation of Sen. Tony Mendoza, and the findings were presented to the Senate Rules Committee on Friday. Those findings haven’t been made public. The five-member committee says it will decide Tuesday whether to recommend discipline, and if so, will share the findings with all members. Mendoza could be censured, suspended, expelled or face no discipline. He has been on leave while the investigation was underway and filed a lawsuit Thursday saying that he’s been treated unfairly. Mendoza will have a chance to defend himself on the Senate floor if his colleagues move to discipline him. Mendoza has been accused of acting inappropriately toward young women who worked for him, including inviting one to his home and offering another alcohol when she was underage.
