The charges were made against Garland Pinholster and Billy Langdale.
I don’t know much about Billy Langdale, but Pinholster is a former GOP Rep. So you guys who say I never criticize Republicans please take note, I’m criticizing a Republican. Pinholster is a jerk for behaving this way and I think he should pay the settlement, not the taxpayers.
Carrie hart, the second employee to file a complaint, told the investigator, “Pinholster started to make remarks about her butt” early this year.
Harris also said long-time board member Billy Langdale made suggestive remarks to her as far back as 2002.
On one occasion telling her, “you have to come to my hotel room. I will have a key for you.”
The report said Pinholster took Harris to lunch in March.
She told the investigator he said, “This food is making me horny. Are you horny? If you are, I can help you out.”
The report said Pinholster admitted the remark, “He said he ordered crawfish etouffee and was making a country joke about its having an aphrodisiac effect. He said Harris laughed.”
The following day, Harris and Hart went to lunch with Pinholster.
Both women told the investigator Pinholster made a similar comment about the food and then “Pinholster said he wanted to see Carrie do a table dance like she does for her husband.”
Monday, Harris accepted a settlement from DOT of $100,000.
Hart agreed to a settlement of just under $45,000.
