More stunning reporting from @kennyjacoby on the LSU sexual harassment scandal.

An LSU administrator told Jacoby that she was tormented by several athletics officials after she reported Les Miles’ behavior. She says she suffered retaliation that continues to this day.
@kennyjacoby "Miles repeatedly pressured Lewis to replace Black student workers on her recruiting staff with blond women or light-skinned Black women whom he considered prettier, Lewis said. When she refused, she said, he directed others to get Lewis to comply with his demands."
"Miles came to her office and told her they had 'too many fat girls, Black girls and ugly girls,' and they 'look like a bad bowling team.' She said he described ugly girls as 'a.m. girls' who should be relegated to office work, and “blondes with big boobs” as 'p.m. girls.'"
"On another occasion, Miles ordered Lewis to fire a student 'because he looked gay,' she said...When Lewis said no, she said, he became irate and stood in front of the doorway for two to three minutes, glaring at her."

There are many more allegations in the story. Jaw-dropping.
