Arundel executive facing new sex charges

By Washington Post editors

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."

Updated, 1:20 p.m.

Leopold has responded to the most recent allegations in a statement to Eye On Annapolis calling the suit, "Ugly politics at its worst."

Did he retaliate against ugly women? Is he addicted to ugly women with adam's apples, like Anne "th' Man!" Coulter?

The new allegations, which alleges that Leopold is "addicted to women",
----------
I'm getting tired of hearing this B.S excuse. Be it from Hollywood, within the sports venues/field,poloticans, etc.

Since when is the enjoyment of nookie, a slight PC term, excuse me, a viable excuse to act inappropriately, or an excuse for doing something criminal? what man doesn't have an "addiction" to nookie? Ahh, yes the homosexual ones, and they are only addicted to another form of nookie, one in which is coming from the same sex, which doens't make it any better or worse.

One should act and behave as THEY know they should. "I'm a sex addict, I'm all strung out on nookie, strange or not, from the same sex or not. BULLShhhhh

So did they ever find out who he was cavorting with in the back seat of his county owned vehicle in the parking lot at Annapolis Mall?

There are no "Charges." There are allegations in a civil suit. Unprofessional of WAPO.
