Rocky Mountain Community Radio’s Bente Birkeland has reported on sexual harassment at the State Capitol since November. This past week additional accusations against Senator Randy Baumgardner were found credible. Doubtful of another expulsion vote, Birkeland has made these reports public with the accusers’ consent. Last week, the Society of Professional Journalists named Bente the Colorado Journalist of the Year. Her coverage of allegations of sexual harassment at the Capitol also won a regional Edward R Murrow award for investigative reporting. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh has more.
