According to the Patriot News, former staffer Rachel Moore said that in 2011 when she was walking past then state Senator Solobay (D-Washington) he slapped her rear end.
Solobay resigned after the Patriot News had reached out to him for comment on a story about the incident.
After Moore filed a complaint against Solobay in 2011, he denied the slap ever happened. According to the Patriot News no other complaint was filed against him during his time in the Senate.
“I should make very clear that I am not here to indict him (Solobay), to call for his resignation, or anybody’s resignation for that matter. I’m here for solutions,” Moore told the Patriot News.
Governor Tom Wolf’s office declined to comment on Solobay’s resignation to the Patriot News.
