State Representative John Fresolo (D-Worcester), is the subject of a House investigation that includes allegations that he took lascivious photos of his privates and sent them to a State House computer, several State House sources tell WTAG.
Fresolo is also suspected of inflating his travel reimbursements. He submitted per diem slips for 220 days of travel from Worcester to the State House, but no one on Beacon Hill remembers seeing Fresolo that frequently.
Fresolo is now on paid administrative leave but could be forced to resign.
According to an email Fresolo sent to the Jordan Levy Show and WTAG, he will not be speaking with the media but also say he will not be resigning his seat.
House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo directed the House Ethics Committee to undertake a full investigation into “serious allegations” of misconduct brought against a member of the House by a member of the Statehouse legislative staff.
