After Scandal, Rosenberg Separates From Husband Bryon Hefner”

Former Massachusetts Senate President Stan Rosenberg has separated from his husband, Bryon Hefner, less than two months after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against Hefner, sources close to Rosenberg told WBUR Thursday. "If Bryon claimed to have influence over my decisions or over the Senate, he should not have said that".

The separation comes weeks after the Boston Globe published allegations that Hefner sexually harassed or assaulted four men while boasting of his influence over Senate business, spurring Rosenberg's resignation from his leadership role.

Hefner is undergoing treatment for substance abuse.

"I have", Rosenberg said, when asked if had separated from his husband of one year. A spokeswoman later said he would not have time for questions Thursday after all.

Today, Rosenberg was greeted by senators and others in the House chamber, where former state senator, and current Lynn mayor, Tom McGee gave his farewell speech this afternoon.

His return to power would mark an extraordinary political turnaround for Rosenberg, whose long legislative and political career appeared dead after he stepped aside in November, pending a Senate ethics committee probe of Hefner's behavior. Worcester Democratic Sen. Harriette Chandler was elected to fill the post of president during the interim.

"I'm looking forward to the completion of the investigation".

Rosenberg said he has not discussed the presidency with any of his colleagues, nor has he been reassured by any senators that they will support his return to the presidency if he is cleared by the investigation.

"I have not discussed anything with regards to what's going to happen once the investigation is complete with my colleagues". The Senate Ethics Committee has hired a legal team to investigate whether Rosenberg violated Senate rules in connection with the allegations against Hefner.
