From WRCB Channel 3…
The head of Tennessee’s Veterans Services, as well as a top deputy, resigned following separate investigations into allegations of sexual misconduct and abusive behavior, records show.
Gov. Bill Lee’s office confirmed Monday that former Commissioner Courtney Rogers and Deputy Commissioner Tilman Goins had resigned. The governor’s office did not reveal further details about why or when the resignations had taken place.
Instead, investigation summary reports provided to The Associated Press by the Department of Human Resources show the two faced separate complaints and eventually submitted their resignation letters on Nov. 25.
The records show Rogers was accused of subjecting employees to abusive behavior — which included frequent yelling and belittling remarks. She was also accused of using inappropriate “racial and homophobic stereotypes and slurs.”
Meanwhile, a separate investigation summary showed that Tilman Goins was accused of having inappropriate relationships with two subordinate employees.
Investigators reported that Goins and one of the employees had feelings for each other based on text messages provided by both parties and “reported conduct from the other person of a sexual nature.”
Both of them then handed identical one-sentence resignation letters on Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving.
