Yesterday, Storey County Sheriff Gerald Antinoro, proud political ally of Republican statewide candidates Adam Laxalt and Wes Duncan, dismissed sexual harassment claims against him as “nonsense” and “hogwash,” but an independent investigation found that he did violate sexual harassment policies — after admitting to doing so in a deposition.
SHOT: Antinoro on KKOH, 5/7/18: “This group that’s protesting, none of them have contacted me. This is all nonsense. This is fabrication at its worst and it’s a distortion at its best. I can’t go into the specifics of anything because of the litigation but this is complete and utter hogwash.“
CHASER: The Nevada Independent, 4/22/18: “an investigation found sexual harassment allegations against Storey County Sheriff Gerald Antinoro were credible”
Q: Was that appropriate for you to engage in that type of conversation with Miss Keener?
A: If you look at it from purely an employment standpoint, no, it was not.
Q: It would have been a violation of the policy for sexual harassment, right?
A: It could have been, yes.
