Prosecutor's Affair

Republicans discuss candidate accused of sexual harassment

Hamilton County Republican leaders say they can't force a prosecutor accused of sexual harassment to drop his bid for re-election. Prosecutor Mike Allen's name is the only one that will appear on the November ballot, since Democrats did not field a candidate. But Democrats have been trying to recruit a write-in candidate.

Allen has admitted having an affair with a female employee but contends it was consensual. An assistant prosecutor who sued Allen contends that he coerced her into the relationship.
