Arundel executive facing new sex charges
This post has been update.
New allegations of sexual misconduct and financial impropriety have been leveled against Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold, The Baltimore Sun reports.
A legal complaint filed Thursday claims that he used his position to meet women and retaliated against employees who resisted his advances.
The new allegations, which alleges that Leopold is "addicted to women", are part of an amendment to a complaint filed last month by former county employee Karla R. Hamner.
Hamner filed a $300,000 sexual harassment, discrimination and workplace retaliation suit Aug. 23, alleging that Leopold made unwanted sexual advances toward her and once grabbed her by her arms and screamed at her because he disliked her hairstyle.
Anne Arundel County Attorney Jonathan A. Hodgson called the new allegations "outrageous." Leopold called them "ugly politics and character assassination at its worst."
