Rep. Rick Staples has been directed to take "preventative action" and "remedial measures" after an internal investigation found he violated the legislature's sexual harassment policy, the Tennessean reports. The Workplace Discrimination and Harassment Subcommittee, part of the house Ethics Committee, met recently to review complaints against the Knoxville Democrat, and found him in violation of the policy. A letter from the committee detailing the findings did not specify what disciplinary actions are being taken against him, but it confirmed he has been instructed to work on his behavior.
