    As per the Anchorage Daily News:

    The new state Department of Public Safety Commissioner Chuck Kopp on Tuesday denied a history of sexual harassment while he was police chief in Kenai....

    On Sunday, a Kenai Peninsula woman e-mailed Palin that Kopp is 'a dishonest, manipulative bully' who once sexually harassed her.
    The woman...said Tuesday she worked for Kopp in 2005 as his assistant. Kopp repeatedly asked her for hugs and a once kissed her cheek, she said. When she objected to his behavior, he reprimanded her, she said.

    She reported the incidents to another supervisor, who took it to the city council, she said. It was also reported to the Alaska Police Standards Council.

    Her claims were substantiated, she said, and she was given a different boss.

    It never rains but it pours, eh?
