WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today regarding recent emails that detail inappropriate communications from Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler to a subordinate:

“Secretary Schedler has claimed the truth about the sexual harassment allegations against him by his employee ‘can be found somewhere in the middle.’  The emails published today tell a different story.  They show that he crossed the line and abused his position,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “It saddens me to say this, but Tom needs to resign.  There is no place in Louisiana for sexual harassment in the workplace.”
