On Thursday,The Denver Post reported new details about why former state Rep. Rochelle Galindo (D-CO), a 29-year-old lesbian Latina who was elected to office last November, abruptly resigned earlier this year.

According to the Post’s reporting, Galindo’s resignation was due to an inappropriate sexual relationship that Galindo had with a 19-year-old female staffer.

“The Greeley Police Department released its investigation report Thursday, revealing the nature of the investigation that led Galindo to resign. At the time of her resignation, Galindo said the allegations were false.”

“The investigation was launched after a 19-year-old woman who worked on Galindo’s election campaign said they had an inappropriate sexual relationship. But the woman ultimately told police she did not want to pursue a criminal investigation and the case was closed.”

Galindo denied the charges against her when the investigation was announced earlier this month.

The Greeley Police found that Galindo, “would provide alcohol to young women working on her campaign and then sexually assault them,” according to the Post.

The 19-year-old staffer told police that “she was afraid to come forward because of the damage it could do to her political career.”

“She told police that her relationship with Galindo was professional for about a month after she was hired in August 2018 to work on the campaign. During sessions where volunteers would call potential campaign donors in the evenings, she said Galindo would be drinking and would provide alcohol for others, the police report said.”

Fox News also reported on Friday that Galindo, “would jokingly compare her to Monica Lewinsky.”
