BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Bridgeport City Council member faces a sexual harassment complaint related to his city job.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1tDhqUf ) that Councilman Richard Paoletto has been placed on administrative leave while the city investigates claims against him by a college intern.

Paoletto, a Democrat, told the newspaper he could not comment because it was a personnel matter.

Paoletto was placed on leave in 2010 as a result of a harassment complaint from an employee. He was suspended without pay for several weeks at the end of the probe.

He also is acting deputy director of housing and commercial code enforcement.

An initial hearing with the city’s Office of Labor Relations has been set for Tuesday.
