Probe continues into allegations

A House Rules Committee continues looking into sexual harassment allegations against Rep. Dan Kirby, R-Tulsa, and Rep. Will Fourkiller, D-Stilwell.

The House paid $44,500 to a former executive assistant of Kirby’s and her lawyers after she filed a complaint alleging wrongful termination and sexual harassment.

Kirby said he is innocent and an internal investigation into the matter found no evidence of harrassment.

Fourkiller has said he was made aware in 2015 that a page said Fourkiller had said something that made her uncomfortable and he had apologized.

“These complaints will be thoroughly and fairly investigated by the committee, and the results of those investigations will be made public,” said State Rep. Josh Cockroft, R-Wanette.
