Fmr. KY House speaker hospitalized”

"At this time, his family requests that their privacy is respected until further information is available".

In a Facebook post made about a year ago, Hoover talked about his family's history of heart issues.

The Republican former Kentucky House speaker was hospitalized just days after stepping down over sexual harassment claims.

He admits to sending inappropriate texts to the staffer but insists they were consensual.

Hoover was elected House speaker in January, and was the first Republican to hold the position in almost a century.

The lawmakers - House Speaker Pro Tempore David Osborne, House Majority Floor Leader Jonathan Shell, Majority Whip Kevin Bratcher and Majority Caucus Chairman David Meade -said they "want the deepest, most independent investigation possible". No other details of Hoover's condition have been announced. "We may - as some have suggested -decide to turn the matter over to the Legislative Ethics Commission, as they have unfettered subpoena power". Jerry Miller will replace Rep. Brian Linder as chairman of the Public Pension Oversight Board. Majority leaders say they will wait to see the preliminary report before moving forward. In a statement released Friday morning, the leadership team says the law firm is now in the first phase of the investigation; They say they expect a preliminary report in about ten days. The leadership team reiterated they are committed to finding the facts.
