New York State’s Joint Commission on Public Ethics has launched an investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Democratic Assemblyman Micah Kellner. Sources say subpoenas have been delivered to individuals who used to work for Kellner. The Assemblyman is currently running for City Council in his Upper East Side Manhattan District.

Kellner is accused of harassing at least two employees between 2009 and 2011. One was female the other was male. Kellner is the only openly bi-sexual member of the Assembly. The matter was referred to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s office in June by Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, who said she had heard “rumors”. Silver fired staff Attorney Bill Collins after learning he had known about the allegations but did not follow proper reporting procedures.

JCOPE would not confirm or deny the investigation. Kellner says he has no knowledge of any subpoenas, but he has admitted to having an inappropriate online conversation with his female staffer.

The Joint Commission, also known as JCOPE, issued a scathing report in May on sexual harassment charges against Vito Lopez. That report led Lopez’s resignation from the Assembly.
