Breaking: Foxworth gets demoted--most allegations against him false

Portland Mayor Tom Potter has demoted Foxworth to Captain. The demotion is based on the one factual finding by the investigation: Foxworth used poor judgement by sending sexually explicit emails and giving his opinion on a lawsuit.

Foxworth's accuser, Angela Oswalt, contended nine allegations of misconduct in her claim against Foxworth.

Potter's statement on the matter can be found at his website.

A copy of the investigator's report is here.

Unfortunately, Foxworth's poor judgement proved to be his undoing. But I'm more irritated with Oswalt. It appears that at least some of the allegations were little more than trumped up BS on her part. Crap like that demeans other people who have REAL sexual harassment issues.
