    Newly released documents suggest a New Hampshire state senator accused of making an inappropriate comment about a female staffer was not allowed to have an aide assigned to his office until he agreed to complete sexual harassment training.

    The attorney general's office recently cleared Bedford Republican Andy Sanborn of allegations that a Senate intern was paid to keep quiet about an inappropriate comment Sanborn made to him.

    This week, the office released interview transcripts in which Sanborn was accused of making a second inappropriate comment.
