ROSENBERG PROBE OPENED, SENATOR EXPECTS OUT-OF-STATE INVESTIGATOR

By Matt Murphy

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 5, 2017....The Senate Ethics Committee opened its investigation into former Senate President Stanley Rosenberg Tuesday, promising complete confidentiality to anyone with information about sexual misconduct by Rosenberg's husband Bryon Hefner and taking steps toward hiring an independent investigator that one senator says will come from out of state.

The six-member committee, including four Democrats and two Republicans, was empowered by the full Senate on Monday night to begin the investigation into Sen. Rosenberg, who stepped down as Senate president for the duration of the investigation with the hopes of returning to his post when it's complete.
