    Newly released documents suggest a New Hampshire state senator accused of making an inappropriate comment about a female staffer was not allowed to have an aide assigned to his office until he agreed to complete sexual harassment training.

    The attorney general's office recently cleared Bedford Republican Andy Sanborn of allegations that a Senate intern was paid to keep quiet about an inappropriate comment Sanborn made to him.

    This week, the office released interview transcripts in which Sanborn was accused of making a second inappropriate comment.

    Another senator said Sanborn initially refused to complete the training, and that may be why he went for a period without an assigned aide.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Sanborn, who is running for Congress, called the matter a political witch hunt and told NHPR he never violated any policies.
