DURHAM A University of New Hampshire professor who exposed himself to a mother and her 17-year-old daughter in Milford nearly two years ago will keep his job, according to an arbitrators ruling provided to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
UNH has been trying to fire Edward Larkin, a professor of German, since September 2009, about two months after he showed his genitals in a Market Basket parking lot. Larkin contested his termination, arguing it violated the terms of the faculty union contract, and was put on leave, earning his full salary of about $88,000, as the dispute dragged on.
In April, an arbitrator sided with Larkin, ruling that the crime was not severe enough for termination, according to a 39-page report released by the UNH faculty union.
In sum, I find that while (Larkins) conduct on July 19, 2009, constituted moral delinquency, it was not moral delinquency of a grave order, arbitrator Michael Ryan wrote, referencing the contract language. The university did not have just cause to terminate him.

I hope that the next woman he flashes is Lorena Bobbit.
This, and so many similar stories about the arrogant occupiers of the higher branches of learning, is the reason why they don’t enjoy our respect any more. Despicable behavior and the people who choose to keep him in his job are despicable too.
Time to “Alinsky” UNH and specifically this dope. Amazing waste of NH tax dollars on display.
New Hampshire has a Weiner too!
Larkin wins arbitration
OK, he keeps his job. Does he have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. I hope so.
New Hampshire alma mater all hail, all hail to thee
Thy moral standards embrace
An exhibitionist faculty
Thy sons and daughters ever
Are lost to iniquity
New Hampshire alma mater all hail, all hail to thee.
Negative, per the article, no perv registration for this crime, only counseling and a fine... and some really good PR for UNH and NH’s own Weiner!
“... constituted moral delinquency, it was not moral delinquency of a grave order, arbitrator Michael Ryan wrote, referencing the contract language.”
true. a contract is a contract.
it is the fault of the University, for failing to specificly put in “flashing a mother and child”,
as legitimate grounds for termination.
Sounds like Weiner’s new employer.
I must have missed the part where Goethe or Schiller extolls the virtue of exposing one’s genitals to unsuspecting womenfolk. Faust 3? Die Glocke, part 2?
Oh, I see, like only "a little pregnant".
