Earlier this year, Christie, an old ex-friend of mine, and Anne-Marie of HR answers, then an employee or contractor with KBOO radio, met at PK restaurant to discuss the 18 years of the volunteer coordinator's employment. It was a fishing expedition, seeking damaging revelations, in which my sexual orientation, gender dysphoria, and proclivities were brought up along with my spouse's, and discussed so loudly, that a friend of mine actually noticed from across the room, and photographed that congress in action.
Of course I find it very disturbing to think that, under the color of an official and (by pretense) necessary action, my personal behavior and intimate details of my personal life should be discussed--and mocked-- loudly in public.
The "investigation" failed, by admission of KBOO, to find any wrongdoing, but it resulted in public insults which continue to this day, and even on this forum.
That fact, that I was defamed, has been brought to the KBOO board months ago. And yet there has never been any attempt to address, explain, or apologize for that action.
I consider it a gross violation of my privacy, and as it has been proven, it was an act of public defamation without legitimate basis, and an act of defamation. That effort was clearly part of a general campaign to break up the union power of the staff at KBOO. My spouse was a union steward, you see. More than that, her long and vigorous efforts to support the viability of the station had given her great knowledge and power within the proceedings of the democratic deliberative bodies that make up KBOO.
So my question is: when will the current Board leadership of KBOO apologize for their aggressive invasion of my privacy? I've been waiting for a long time for an answer. The issue has never been brought up by the Board, and has never been addressed.
I am still waiting.
