The California Assembly has released documents showing a high-level staffer resigned this year during an investigation that found it likely he sexually harassed female employees.

The documents released Friday detail allegations Rodney Wilson was visibly drunk and slurring his words when he made sexually suggestive comments to and leered at two Assembly employees.

The records show Wilson resigned his job as chief of staff to Assemblyman Tom Daly in January after the Assembly began investigating the allegations. The alleged incident happened on the final night of the legislative session last year.

Daly said in a statement he had not heard about the allegations before Friday.

Efforts to reach to Wilson were also not immediately successful. The documents indicate he denied at least some of the allegations.
