What a coincidence. The newly appointed head of San Francisco’s police watchdog agency, who just happens to be African-American, is suddenly accused of sexually harassing a woman in 2014.
The alleged victim, a senior investigator of harassment and discrimination cases for the Department of Human Resources, would not comment on the letter other than saying it “speaks for itself.”
Department of Police Accountability Interim Director Manuel Fortes, an attorney for the DPA since 2009, on May 12 was named interim director — effective July 1 — following the resignation of longtime Director Joyce Hicks.
Fortes, 58, would not comment Friday on the allegation, nor would any of the supervisors who received the email or Police Commission President Julius Turman.
It smells of the San Francisco Police Officers Association to us. It’s certainly their style. It wouldn’t take much for them to float this kind of despicable story. Time will tell.
Enjoy your Police State.
