Allegations of misconduct have left Ohio Senate Democrats without a chief of staff.

Tuesday, the Senate confirmed Mike Premo resigned his role with the state.

According to Senate officials, the allegations were brought to Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko.

Senator Yuko issued the following statement:

"Recently, concerns of inappropriate conduct toward staff came to my attention and I found the information to be credible. Therefore, at my request, Mike Premo today submitted his resignation as Minority Chief of Staff."

"Deputy Chief of Staff George Boas has assumed the role of acting Chief of Staff effective immediately. Out of respect for those who raised the concerns and wish to maintain their privacy, I am not commenting further."

Neither Sen. Yuko or the Democratic Caucus would detail the allegations brought against Premo.
