Me Too--Who Next?

Earlier this week, the Albany Times Union, the Democrat & ChronicleLohud, and WAMC reported that Robert Freeman, long-time director of the Committee on Open Government and hero to many Hudsonians, had been fired on Monday after a reporter filed an official complaint accusing him of sexual harassment. The charges against Freeman are detailed in a letter from New York State Inspector General Letizia Tagliafierro to Secretary of State Rossana Rosado. That letter can be found here. Since Monday, other women have come forward with allegations against Freeman of inappropriate sexual behavior.

  1. What a huge loss for state residents, though apparently not an unjustified one.

    It seems Bob's dismissal is well deserved despite his stature as maybe the best public servant in state government.

    Hardly "the best" for all though ...
