UC Berkeley fires sex perv professor

Finally! UC Berkeley has fired an assistant professor for sexually harassing four students.

Blake Wentworth, who taught in the Department of South and Southeast Asian Studies, was found to have violated the school’s faculty code of conduct and its sexual harassment policy, the school said.

The firing, effective immediately, apparently ends a controversy that lasted more than two years.

Students and faculty say it took too long for the school to fire Wentworth, and it’s not the only time UC Berkeley has been criticized for its handling of sexual harassment claims.
