CHICAGO (CBS) — A woman who was a secretary for the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police has filed a federal sexual harassment suit against the union.
The lawsuit goes into some salacious detail, using words we cannot use. It accuses FOP attorney Paul Geiger of asking then-secretary Marie Marrero, “How do you like this” as he “showed her a Facebook picture of him shirtless and flexing.”READ MORE: 3 Killed, 2 Wounded In Kenosha Bar Shooting; Shooter At Large
Marrero’s attorney, David Lee, said Geiger harassed Marrero in other ways.
“By doing things like constantly asking her to come into his office and view pornography, asking her to send him a topless photograph of her,” Lee said.
According to Lee, a union investigation showed Marrero had been harassed by Geiger.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Cooler Trend Next Week After Quiet Weekend
Geiger is suing Marrero for slander.
Marrero says she was fired by the union when she took maternity leave – and now she’s suing to get her job back, along with back pay and compensation for emotional distress.
An attorney for the FOP says the allegations in the harassment suit are false and the union “will vigorously defend itself.”MORE NEWS: Protesters Hold 'Healing Circle' At Site Where Adam Toledo Was Shot And Killed By Police; 'Our Presence Is A Form Of Resistance'
