A second letter signed by women in support of Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein was released Friday, this time signed by former staffers in his office.

“The national reckoning over sexual harassment in the workplace was long overdue and we admire the bravery of every woman who has come forward to share intimate details about painful personal experiences. While we cannot comment on the specifics of the allegation, we can attest that the behavior alleged is completely out of step with the man we have worked closely with, and some of us have known personally and professionally for years,” the letter states. “In our interactions with him, we have never witnessed or experienced anything that would make us question Senator Klein’s honor or integrity.”

Klein has been accused of forcibly kissing a then-aide in March 2015, a claim he’s denied.

The letter, signed by eight former staffers in Klein’s office, calls him a “man of strong integrity” who has been a “tireless advocate for women.”

It also touts the legislative issues Klein has supported while in office.

“Throughout his time in office, he has sponsored and supported legislation to strengthen and protect women’s rights, including ending the statute of limitations for rape victims, enacting gender pay equity, protecting domestic violence victims, and combating workplace sexual harassment,” the letter states.

“He was also the key force behind the Paid Family Leave program, often considered one of the best programs in the nation. Additionally, he spearheaded the effort to protect vital women’s health services from potential federal budget cuts, including insurance coverage for contraception, funding for Planned Parenthood, and a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions.”

The letter comes hours after another email was sent with a letter signed by community leaders in support of Klein. In both instances, the letters were sent through a public relations firm Klein has retained.

Klein on Thursday asked the Joint Commission on Public Ethics to investigate the allegation.

The letters also come as liberal advocacy groups that have been critical of the IDC over the years have mobilized to push Klein to step down as IDC leader. TrueBlueNY, a progressive group, held a rally in New York City today, while the Working Families Party in a statement called on him to resign his leadership post in the midst of the investigation.

Sen. Diane Savino, who has been romantically involved with Klein, in a statement said the rally was politically motivated.

“The organizer of the rally, True Blue NY, was literally founded to end the IDC so it’s pretty clear that calls for resignation have more to do with politics than anything else,” she said.
