Woman accuses BU athletic staff of sexual harassment

A woman who has been employed by Binghamton University for one year is accusing two members of the athletic staff of sexual harassment, according to a story on the New York Times Web site.

The New York Times said Elizabeth Williams, a major gifts officer for Binghamton athletics, began processing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on March 5 and formally filed it Tuesday. In it, she named Jason Siegel, a senior associate athletic director, and Chris Lewis, the assistant athletic director for development.
