NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee attorney general is declining to give lawmakers details about his investigation into sexual harassment allegations against state Rep. Jeremy Durham.

Durham in January stepped down as House majority whip and then withdrew from the House Republican caucus.

Durham told the Williamson Herald last month that the attorney general’s office has requested he turn over all electronic devices and personal email accounts.
