Former Statehouse Intern Says Bosma Intimidated Her

A former statehouse intern says House Speaker Brian Bosma tried to intimidate her over a sexual encounter claim.

This information is coming out as Bosma works on the first-ever sexual harassment policy for state lawmakers, and after he investigated groping claims against Attorney General Curtis Hill.

The woman was 20 years old at the time of the alleged act, and is not accusing Bosma of a crime.

Instead, she says he paid a law firm forty-thousand dollars to gather unfavorable information about her, then threatened to reveal it if she went public.
