Investigation clouds Boren’s otherwise-distinguished legacy

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Less than a year after stepping down as the University of Oklahoma’s president, former governor and U.S. Senator David Boren’s reputation is becoming less clear. The 77-year-old Democrat finds himself on the defensive, ensnared in allegations that he sexually harassed male subordinates.
Boren’s attorneys have confirmed that he is the target of an investigation being conducted for the university by a large law firm.
Former OU student Jess Eddy says Boren touched him and kissed him on multiple occasions when he was a student working as a teaching aide for Boren in 2010 and 2011.
Boren has denied the allegations.
The investigation comes after the university’s tumultuous transition to a new administration.
