Former Missouri lobbyist accused of sexual harassment

Posted: Updated:
JEFFERSON CITY, MO -

A judge has issued a restraining order blocking a former lobbyist accused of sexually harassing interns and employees from coming within 1,000 feet of the Missouri Capitol.
    
A Cole County judge granted the restraining order Thursday against David Poger. Calls to Poger were not immediately returned.
    
He was registered as a lobbyist in 2011. The House and Senate claim he still comes to the Capitol.
    
A hearing is scheduled for March 14.
    
The restraining order comes a week after a Republican House member resigned after admitting to having an affair.
    
A Republican House speaker left office last year after admitting to exchanging sexually suggestive text messages with an intern. And a Democratic state senator also resigned last year amid allegations of sexually harassing interns.
