An Alaska state senator is calling for the public release of a report and video that he says clear him of wrongdoing after allegations of inappropriate behavior toward a female House aide surfaced.

Republican Sen. David Wilson of Wasilla also wants House Speaker Bryce Edgmon and House Rules Chair Gabrielle LeDoux to step down from their leadership roles for their handling of the matter.

Wilson says he never placed a cell phone between the aide’s legs, an allegation that surfaced on a blog in October.

Wilson says Senate President Pete Kelly shared with him the findings of the Legislative Affairs Agency investigation.

The agency recently denied The Associated Press’ request for video of the incident, citing policy prohibiting release of surveillance materials to the public unless required by court order.
