Madison…The Assembly Republican leadership team released the following statement in response to the allegations of sexual misconduct by Rep. Josh Zepnick, according to news reports. At this point, no formal complaint has been filed against him in the legislature.
“As the leaders of the Assembly, we take accusations of sexual harassment and assault seriously. These latest allegations are no different. Rep. Zepnick’s behavior was reprehensible and conduct that’s unacceptable for any human being, let alone a state representative.
“Rep. Zepnick has the responsibility to reflect on whether he can effectively represent his district in light of these circumstances and then, decide what’s best for his constituents and the institution as a whole.”
