NEW: State Rep. John Fresolo Under Investigation for Explicit Photos

Saturday, March 23, 2013

 

Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo has launched an investigation by the House Ethics Committee into "serious allegations" against a state representative, and sources have told GoLocalWorcester that the lawmaker in question is Worcester's own Rep. John Fresolo.

A statement released this week by DeLeo's office did not identify the legislator under investigation or the allegations against him or her, but two sources with knowledge of the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that the allegations are against Fresolo and have to do with sexually explicit pictures of himself he loaded onto a State House computer. Both sources said the allegations originated from a female State House employee.

Calls for comment to Fresolo's office and home were not immediately returned. He has yet to acknowledge whether or not he is the subject of the investigation.

While rumors swirled on Thursday that Fresolo, who is in his eighth term as state Rep. for Worcester's 16th District, would resign, he told several media outlets that he would not be stepping down.
