SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The defeat of New Mexico state Rep. Carl Trujillo in the Democratic primary election has not halted an investigation by the Legislature into allegations of sexual harassment against the Santa Fe-area lawmaker.

The Legislature's lead attorney, Raul Burciaga, said Wednesday that an investigation continues against Trujillo by a panel of four lawmakers and outside counsel.

Trujillo vehemently denies accusations by animal welfare activist Laura Bonar that he inappropriately touched and propositioned her as the two worked together on legislation in 2014. He lost Tuesday's Democratic primary election to Andrea Romero of Santa Fe in a race with no Republican contenders.

Bonar said Wednesday through her attorney Levi Monagle that she will pursue her complaint with the Legislature to its conclusion under an anti-harassment policy adopted earlier this year.
