Skip to comments.Boren under investigation for sexual harassment

The University of Oklahoma is paying one of the largest law firms in the world to investigate former President David Boren, sources have confirmed.
Investigators with the Jones Day law firm have asked whether Boren sexually harassed male aides, sources said.
Boren, a former Oklahoma governor and U.S. senator, retired last year after nearly 24 years in charge at OU. Through an attorney Wednesday, Boren, 77, denied any misconduct.
"This is not an objective search for the truth. It is a fishing expedition," attorney Bob Burke told The Oklahoman. "President Boren emphatically denies any inappropriate behavior or unlawful activity. He has been a dedicated public servant for more than 50 years and his life is an open book in Oklahoma."
The attorney also said "Jones Day has not accepted our invitation to meet to talk about the matter."
OU confirmed Wednesday an investigation into allegations of serious misconduct is ongoing.

He’s a Democrat. What are the chances he was in the closet?
That Boren is gay is not a big secret.
No, not a big secret at all, nor has it been since... 1978 or so.
Molly is yag too.
Just the way it is.
That rumor is old as dirt, he’s a full on homo.
I forgot he swore on a bible that he wasn’t gay, this back in 1978 when he was running for the Senate. I wouldn’t want to be him on Judgment Day for pulling such a stunt.
This is PRyan’s uncle by marriage, isn’t it?
Ever wonder why Republicans seem to be working against the American people, the president and the country at-large at times? This is one reason among many; they are compromised. Their flaws and faults can be leveraged to ensure their compliance on votes important to the people funding their campaigns.
