SALT LAKE CITY, Utah.-- Lawyers for Utah Gov. The accusations are being denied by Spencer Cox's former campaign manager. This was after an investigation proved that he had been accused of sexual misconduct.
Lawyers for Austin Cox stated Friday that the relationship was a long-term, between two young adults, which he broke off earlier this year. KUTV reported.
The statement stated that "our client unambiguously and emphatically denies all allegations to the contrary".

KUTV asked Austin Cox to speak with them Friday. However, his lawyer declined.
The governor and the former campaign manager are not related.
