Amid accusations of sexual assault, three members of Pueblo County Sheriff, Dan Corsentino's campaign staff have resigned.

On Friday, Will Fox, Roger Gomez, and campaign manager Dan Diekmann resigned.

Despite the timing, Sheriff Corsentino says the resignations have nothing to do with the allegations. He admits his team has made some mistakes, namely, he says he should have personally responded to the sexual harassment allegations immediately after they surfaced.

Former campaign manager Diekmann won't say exactly what prompted his resignation, but, he did tell 11 News, "I appreciate the opportunity that Sheriff Corsentino gave me to help get his campaign off the ground. We came to a mutual agreement that at this time it's best if I move on and pursue other endeavors. I wish Sheriff Corsentino the best of luck in the remainder of his campaign race."

Corsentino is running for the third congressional district, left open by Republican Scott McIinnis. He is currently in his fourth term as Pueblo County Sheriff.
