    The head of the Tennessee legislature is banishing one of the members, state Rep. Jeremy Durham (R), after a state investigation found that he engaged in inappropriate physical conduct with government staffers and “may pose a continuing risk to unsuspecting women.”

    State House Speaker Beth Harwell (R) has ordered Durham to move out of his current office to a building across the street, which is farther away from lawmakers, lobbyists and interns — including the people he allegedly harassed — but still not entirely isolated.

    He will also have his access to other legislative areas restricted, and he’s barred from any contact with legislative staff or interns — other than his assistant — that is not directly related to official business. A source in state government told The Huffington Post that the actions were extremely unusual, and they couldn’t remember anything similar happening in recent years.

    The decision came in response to an investigation by Attorney General Herbert Slatery (R), whose office interviewed 34 current and former lawmakers, lobbyists, staffers and interns.
