Georgia Senate panel dismisses sex harassment complaint against Shafer

The Georgia Senate Ethics Committee announced Friday that it has dismissed a sexual harassment complaint against state Sen. David Shafer.

It came a day after the Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained an investigative report raising questions about the allegations. 

“Based on the findings of fact reported by the independent counsel, the committee found that there is a lack of credible evidence to support the allegations in the complaint,” said a letter from the committee’s chairman, state Sen. Dean Burke, R-Bainbridge. 

Shafer, a Duluth Republican, is running for lieutenant governor.
