New York Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb of Canandaigua is taking on rumors that accusations of misconduct could be a factor in his decision to drop out of the race for governor.
Kolb to the surprise of many ended his candidacy on Friday after announcing the run in December.
The 65-year-old Rochester native was considered the favorite for the GOP nomination.
Rumors circulated around his campaign as his name was attached to a civil court case 14-years ago where the chamber's former counsel was accused of sexual misconduct by a former female assembly aide.
Kolb denies that he was in any way involved at that the rumors had anything to do with his decision to drop out of his campaign.
