BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) House Speaker Robert DeLeo told the State House News Tuesday it's imperative legislation doesn't get stalled in the Senate while at least three Senators lobby for the Senate President's job.

Meanwhile, Attorney General Maura Healey says her joint criminal investigation into sexual harrassment allegations against Rosenberg's husband are continuing--and she's looking into published allegations that Bryon Heffner had access to Rosenberg's email.

"Obviously the allegations I read about the other day are very concerning and  troubling, we reviewing now," Healey said.

Top state leaders are suggesting a prolonged ethics investigation could stall everything from the budget to criminal justice reform.

"Suffice to say, we're going to take a look at and make sure that we have looked at the extent to which state laws have been violated, and take action as appropriate," she told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Lana Jones.

State Auditor Suzanne Bumps says she was shocked at a report that Bryon Hefner had access to Rosenberg's email account. 

She says Rosenberg should abandon plans to return as Senate President.
