(Salem, OR) -- An investigation into the behavior of a state lawmaker at the Oregon State Capitol found that he created a hostile work environment for at least two women. Investigators say Democratic Representative Diego Hernandez had brief relationships with both women, but when those relationships ended, they felt that Hernandez would harm their careers as a result. The report will head to the Legislature's Committee on Conduct next week where Hernandez's fellow lawmakers will determine what happens next.
