WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Democratic Rep. Eric Massa’s chief of staff has filed a sexual harassment complaint against the 50-year-old New York lawmaker.

Joe Racalto’s attorney Camilla McKinney said Friday the complaint was filed March 23. Such complaints are handled by the Office of Compliance, an independent agency. Citing confidentiality, she declined to offer details of the allegations.

Massa’s attorney did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

Another male aide has also filed a complaint alleging Massa regularly groped him, propositioned him and made lewd remarks to him and other staffers, beginning in early 2009.

Massa resigned last month under a sexual harassment cloud, and the House ethics committee is investigating how Democratic leaders handled the allegations.
