Secretary of State Tom Schedler told a Senate committee his office is looking at improving its anti-harassment policies. Schedler, who was accused of sexually harassing an employee in a recent lawsuit, was forced to discuss his agency’s policies during harsh questioning from New Orleans Senator Karen Peterson.

“I will assure you and this committee that we’re going to look at that and not withstanding anything of current nature there, that’s not going to stand in the way,” Schedler responded.

Peterson said it’s been since 2013 since the Secretary of State’s office has updated its anti-harassment policies. Schedler says his agency is working on revised procedures.

“We will get back with you before week’s end and give you those recommendations and I will remain out of that process,” Schedler said.
