SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Spokane City Council is upset that Mayor David Condon knew in April of allegations of sexual harassment against former police Chief Frank Straub and did not disclose the information.

Members of the City Council all signed a letter Monday written by Council President Ben Stuckart. The letter demands details on why Condon’s top officials withheld information from council members and the media about allegations of a hostile work environment under Straub.

The Spokesman-Review says the letter also asked for information about the delay in releasing public records surrounding the case, which were first sought in August by The Spokesman-Review newspaper.

If Condon doesn’t answer the questions, Stuckart says he will consider launching a council-led investigation.

Last week, the city released records shedding light on Straub’s forced resignation in September.
