GOP state senator's aide fired after photo shows him joking about sexual harassment training

PARKER, Colo. -- An aide to state Sen. Jim Smallwood, R-Parker, was fired Thursday morning after a picture of him surfaced on social media with a caption that included a vulgar joke about sexual harassment training.
