NYC public housing staff reassigned amid sex allegations
Aug. 28, 2018
NEW YORK (AP) — The entire 40-person staff of a New York City public housing development has been reassigned after residents complained that some workers had been drinking and having sex on the job.
Housing Authority spokeswoman Robin Levine says the employees were moved from the Bronx development due to "management and performance issues" as well as "troubling allegations of misconduct."
She did not elaborate, but the president of the Throggs Neck Houses tenant association alleges employees sometimes got paid overtime while having sex. Monique Johnson also says supervisors had sex with subordinates.
Levine declined to say whether there's a sexual harassment investigation.
Democratic City Councilman Mark Gjonaj (JOH'-neye) says he's concerned that transferred staffers could misbehave at other developments.
The development near the Trump Golf Links includes 29 buildings with about 2,500 residents.
