Oklahoma ex-senator David Boren accused of sexual misconduct

The Associated Press - March 30, 2019 10:43 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A former University of Oklahoma student alleges he was touched and kissed inappropriately by former school President David Boren almost a decade ago, when he was a teaching aide for the onetime governor and senator.
The allegations by Jess Eddy appear to be at the center of a law firm’s investigation for the school into whether Boren sexually harassed male subordinates. Oklahoma state authorities are also investigating the claims. Boren has denied any inappropriate conduct in statements released by his attorneys.
Boren was a Democratic governor in the 1970s before serving in the U.S. Senate. He was OU president from 1994 until stepping down last year.
Eddy’s latest allegations were first reported on Tuesday by the online news site NonDoc.
