Ex-senator, governor David Boren under investigation for sexual harassment

https://newsok.com/article/5622885/boren-under-investigation-for-sexual-harassment


Being conducted by the University of Oklahoma, where Boren served until recently as President. He is being investigated for harassing male colleagues.

On a personal note, this has been rumored for many years. While working at the governor's mansion as a young man while he was in office, I had an uncomfortable encounter with him. Nothing aggressive or inappropriate but just the feeling that he was a little too interested in me. My coworkers commented on it too.

1. I remember when Gov. Boren put his hand on the bible

and swore "I am not, nor have I ever been, a homosexual"

2. I had forgotten that

I know more from a reliable source about him but it's heresay so I won't go there.

He did a lot for the university but as a pol he was definitely on the side of the powerful and became one of those "both sides are wrong" Democrat/independent types. Some might say he had to do that to get elected but Dave McCurdy, the late Mike Synar and James Jones didn't and lost, but ended up with clean consciences I bet.
