Navy Commander Accuses Miami Herald Reporter Of Sexual Harassment

miami.pngFishbowlDC reported exclusively Friday on a sexual harassment case that involves a role reversal of sorts. Not only does it involve a man filing suit against a woman, but the sexual harassment allegations were brought by a Navy commander against a reporter.

According to FishbowlDC‘s report:

US Navy Commander Jeffrey D. Gordon has filed a sexual harassment complaint against the Miami Herald‘s Carol Rosenberg.

FishbowlDC obtained a copy of the July 22, 2009 letter addressed to Miami Herald Senior VP and Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal. In the complaint, Gordon calls for a “thorough investigation” to put an end to Rosenberg’s “appalling behavior” that includes comments about the Commander’s sexual orientation.

The complaint outlines examples of Rosenberg’s alleged “abusive and degrading, comments of an explicitly sexual nature.”
