Tennessee state Rep. Jeremy Durham (R) engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct, including sexual harassment, toward 22 women, according to a report from the state attorney general released Wednesday.
Durham resigned from his leadership post following the report about his texting habits in January, but he will run for re-election in November.
The report from the attorney general found that its findings warrant expulsion for Durham, but the legislature will leave the decision up to voters, according to the Tennessean. Durham is up for re-election this year.
Leaders in the state legislature had initially pushed to expel Durham after details surfaced about his inappropriate text messages.
