FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky lieutenant governor candidate Sannie Overly is scheduled to give a deposition this month in a sexual harassment case against a former lawmaker and is asking that her testimony be sealed.

The Democratic state representative from Paris is scheduled to be deposed April 13 by attorney Thomas Clay. Franklin County Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate scheduled a hearing for Wednesday to consider sealing the deposition.

Clay told the Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/1CSdOje ) he wants to ask Overly about any sexual harassment she might have experienced in the legislature.

Clay represents two women who have filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against former state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis. Arnold has denied any wrongdoing.

Overly did not return a phone call seeking comment Tuesday.

She is the running mate of Jack Conway, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor in May’s primary.
