State Sen. Dan Schoen, like Dayton a Democrat, is accused of behavior ranging from unwanted attention to women to physically grabbing a woman from behind. The online news outlet MinnPost first reported the allegations late Wednesday.

Dayton says the reports are "totally unacceptable" and that Schoen should resign immediately.

The party's leader in the Senate, Tom Bakk, also says Schoen should step down.

Schoen says the allegations are false.
