Nevada Senator Mark Manendo Denies Second Sexual Harassment Claim

Las Vegas Democratic Senator Mark Manendo has denied a sexual harassment claims against him currently under investigation.

An attorney for Democratic Sen. Mark Manendo said in a Monday phone interview the senator believes he has done nothing wrong. Attorney Richard Wright added in an emailed statement that he and Manendo are confident the senator will ultimately be exonerated.

The spokesman for Nevada’s Senate Democratic caucus said an independent investigator is looking into an allegation of sexual harassment lodged recently against Las Vegas Sen. Mark Manendo.

Peter Koltak confirmed the Legislature, at the direction of Democratic Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford, has retained an independent investigator but declined to provide details about the allegation.

Wright says no one has shared details of the allegations with Manendo, either. Manendo says he takes such allegations very seriously, which is why he retained Wright.

Manendo says he did not retain a lawyer in 2003, when he denied legislative interns’ claims that he sexually harassed them. A review that year found no evidence of wrongdoing.
