STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 4, 2017....[Story Developing] The Senate elected Senate Majority Leader Harriette Chandler of Worcester Monday night to serve as acting president during an investigation they were prepared to initiate into alleged sexual misconduct by Sen. Stanley Rosenberg's husband Bryon Hefner and Hefner's possible influence on Senate business.

Senators, after a full day of closed door deliberations, also said they welcomed an invitation by prosecutors to explore possible criminal wrongdoing and outlined the process they plan to use to conduct their own investigation into the situation centered around one of the state's most powerful Democrats.

The Senate investigation should "take as long as it takes," Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr, signaling a potentially long period of uncertainty in the Senate about the outcome of the probe, leadership considerations, and impacts on the policy agenda of Democratic House and Senate leaders.
