A former western Kentucky lawmaker won't face sanctions from the House for allegations that he sexually harassed legislative staffers.

A special investigative House committee voted 3-2 along party lines Thursday to adjourn without taking any action against former Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis, concluding that it has no legal authority because he has already resigned.

Arnold gave up his seat in the House in September, shortly after the sexual harassment allegations were made public. Legislative staffers Yolanda Costner and Cassaundra Cooper say Arnold had touched them inappropriately and made vulgar comments.

A third woman also has filed a complaint.
