Florida Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, has been removed from his position as budget chief of the Senate in the wake of sexual harassment allegations that Florida Gov. Rick Scott called "disgusting."

Politico Florida reported that six women have accused Latvala of groping them or making comments about their bodies. Latvala is also a candidate for governor.

Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, will replace Latvala as head of the Appropriations Committee.
