STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 7, 2017....Harriette Chandler was born in 1937, the year the first woman -- Sybil Holmes of Brookline -- was elected to the Massachusetts Senate.

Chandler on Monday night became the second woman ever to lead the Senate, elected as acting president after a day of closed-door talks on how to forge ahead during an ethics probe borne out of sexual misconduct allegations.

"I have been elected to a job I never thought I'd hold - under circumstances I'd never wish to repeat," Chandler posted on Facebook Monday night. "But don't get me wrong, I will still fight for Worcester, for Boylston, for Clinton, for Holden, for Northborough, for Princeton, and for West Boylston, just as I always have. Tomorrow is a new day in the Massachusetts Senate."
