Reporter Allison Donahue has spoken out after being told by a US senator that schoolboys could "have a lot of fun" with her.

Michigan state senator Peter Lucido initially said that the incident was blown out of proportion, but later tweeted an apology for what he said was a misunderstanding. 

Now two state senate leaders have called for an investigation into whether his comments amounted to sexual harassment.
