Commissioners ask colleague to resign following complaint

December 7, 2017

PROVO, Utah (AP) — Officials are calling for a Utah County commissioner to resign after allegations of intimidation, bullying and sexual misconduct were investigated.

A county employee filed a complaint against Greg Graves earlier this year, outlining incidents of inappropriate behavior and sexual comments.

Commissioners on Wednesday made public the complaint documents, which includes more than 100 pages of redacted emails and reports by employees detailing encounters with Graves. The findings of the county investigation were not released.

Commissioners Nathan Ivie and Bill Lee have called on Graves to resign following the investigation.

Graves told The Salt Lake Tribune that he will not resign, and the investigation findings had “100 percent exonerated” him from the sexual harassment claim. He says people are using “events in the national news to create stuff that’s not there.”
