Gov. Charlie Baker says new allegations that state Senate President Stan Rosenberg may have directed his staff to allow his husband, Bryon Hefner, access to his email account, his contacts and his calendar are deeply concerning.

"If they are deemed to be accurate," said Baker, "I think at that point, there's no way Stan Rosenberg should continue to be president of the Senate."

Rosenberg temporarily stepped aside as President in November while a Senate committee investigates reports of sexual misconduct by his husband and whether Rosenberg broke any of the chamber's rules.
