Torment, Harassment & Campaign Work at Borough Hall?

Borough President Marty Markowitz's former communications director has filed a lawsuit alleging that staffers on the city payroll were used to do campaign work and that there was "inappropriate sexual activity" by four employees and that she was discriminated against. The Daily News reported the story earlier this week and the Brooklyn Paper reports it today. Borough President Marty Markowitz's office denies the charges:
“These unfounded claims should be taken in context — they are from a disgruntled former employee who was dismissed,” the statement read. “If served with court papers, we will address these baseless allegations in court. This office stands by its excellent EEO [Equal Employment Opportunity] record.”
The suit was filed by Regina Weiss, 50, who was forced from her job in 2006.
