Allegations of inappropriate behavior prompted resignation of Vancouver legislator

first_imgOLYMPIA — Leaders at the Washington state House have acknowledged that a state representative from Vancouver who resigned in the middle of the 2011 legislative session was forced out because of allegations of inappropriate behavior toward a female staffer at an off campus St. Patrick’s Day celebration.Democratic House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan, in a statement sent to The Associated Press late Wednesday, said leadership determined former Democratic Rep. Jim Jacks’ conduct was “serious enough to warrant his resignation.” Leadership at the Capitol hadn’t divulged specifics about Jacks’ resignation until asked again by AP for the information amid the growing national conversation around sexual harassment and assault.Jacks, who had first won his seat in the 49th legislative district in 2008 and was re-elected in 2010, is currently a project manager and facilitator at Oregon Solutions at Portland State University. He did not immediately respond to email or phone requests seeking comment.His departure in March 2011 only came to light as a leadership statement accepting his resignation. There was no official announcement of his quitting, and he faxed his resignation letter from a hotel in Oregon. At the time Sullivan refused to provide more details, just saying Jacks “needed to take care of some things at home.” A month later, Jacks told The Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Washington, that he had a drinking problem and resigned because he was an alcoholic but denied allegations of inappropriate behavior.Sullivan said the decision to not release the details at the time was to protect the staffer involved. He says the information is being released now so “everyone in the legislative arena – members, staff, and lobbyists – know that sexual harassment will not be tolerated.”last_img read more
