If it keeps up at the current pace, we’ll have to consider adding it as a weekly feature, but since the slime of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault/harassment stories came out, there has been a fairly steady drumbeat of terminations and resignations in a host of industries across the country – some of which may be of interest to our subscribers. This week, the chief budget officer for the AFL-CIO, Terry Stapleton resigned on Monday amid allegations of harassment. Against the backdrop of dozens of layoffs last February, Stapleton allegedly told a secretary that he could protect her job if she had a sexual relationship with him. Just 2 weeks ago, we advised that Scott Courtney, SEIU architect of The Fight for $15 was suspended indefinitely pending investigation into harassment allegations, but last week he resigned his position and is out of SEIU. Since then, 3 other members of the union’s senior staff have left – Kendall Fells, organizing director of Fight for $15, resigned amid an internal investigation into sexual harassment allegations, Caleb Jennings, director of the Fight for $15 in Chicago was terminated for sexual harassment and Mark Raleigh, head of the Fight for $15 Detroit chapter was fired after another investigation exposed abusive behavior towards predominantly female staff. And of course, we can toss the political world into the scandals as well – Kentucky Speaker of the House Jeff Hoover resigned his leadership post last week in the face of sexual harassment allegations, but pledged to remain in the House as a representative. The claim against Hoover also alleged harassment on the part of three other elected representatives in Kentucky, Representatives Brian Linder of Dry Ridge, Michael Meredith of Oakland and Jim DeCesare of Bowling Green. Over in the news media, Hamilton Fish, the president and publisher of The New Republic resigned Friday from the magazine after allegations of inappropriate conduct were made against him and a new journal of politics and culture named Ideas, shut down before its first issue made the newsstands because of past inappropriate conduct by the proprietor, Leon Wieseltier, former literary editor of the New Republic.
