BREAKING: Bruce hit with sexual harrasment complaint

Breaking on Denver's NBC affiliate KUSA right now,

DENVER - Rep. Douglas Bruce (R-Colorado Springs) is facing a sexual harassment charge filed by a Capitol staffer, according to multiple state representatives.

Bruce met with House Speaker Andrew Romanoff (D-Denver) Wednesday afternoon to discuss the allegations. House Minority Leader Mike May (R-Parker) has been aware of the allegations since they were filed earlier in the week as well.

Calls to Bruce's office and an e-mail sent to him for comment by 9NEWS went unreturned.

The representatives, who are not allowed by House rules to share personnel matters publicly, say the sexual harassment allegations stem from a verbal comment Bruce made to a female staffer.

The plot thickens. This is worse than an episode of the Real World.
