SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A public hearing has been scheduled on sexual harassment accusations by a former political lobbyist against a New Mexico state lawmaker who lost his re-election primary in June.

In documents published Friday, a bipartisan ethics subcommittee of eight House lawmakers scheduled two days in December to vet allegations by Animal Protection Voters staffer Laura Bonar that Democratic state Rep. Carl Trujillo of Nambe made inappropriate advances toward her in 2013 and 2014.

Trujillo denies the allegations and said Friday he is hoping to have authority to subpoena communications records and summon witnesses to testify. Bonar's attorney could not be reached immediately.

A report from a special counsel has backed up two allegations of harassment.

Any potential reprimand, censure or expulsion is subject to a full vote of the 70-member House.
