Pennsylvania House leaders: Rep. Miccarelli should resign over misconduct claims

HARRISBURG — House Republican leaders on Thursday called on Rep. Nick Miccarelli (R) to step down as the top prosecutor in Dauphin County said he would investigate allegations by two women that the Delaware County legislator sexually or physically assaulted them.

Fran Chardo, Dauphin County’s district attorney, said his office would take the lead on the inquiry but noted what he called “joint jurisdiction” with the state Attorney General’s Office. Chardo did not say if his office was asked to look into the allegations or chose to do so on its own after they were made public Wednesday by the Inquirer and Daily News and the Caucus, a publication of LNP Media Group in Lancaster.

In their statement, the GOP leaders called the women’s accusations “very serious” and said they should be “thoroughly investigated” by law enforcement.

The House had also launched its own inquiry into the matter after the women filed a Feb. 8 confidential complaint about Miccarelli and asked legislative leaders to take action against him. That probe was expected to be complete by week’s end, a spokesman said.
