Ex-FETO school director faces new sex harassment claims

By Michael Hernandez

WASHINGTON (AA) – A second woman has come forward alleging the former head of a FETO-linked charter school in New Jersey sexually harassed her.

The woman, who is only identified as B.B. in court papers obtained by the Paterson Times, alleged a long pattern of sexual misconduct by her former superior.

The former science teacher is suing Danny Necimo, the former Paterson Arts and Science Charter School director, over a half-dozen incidents of alleged sexual harassment.

Her lawsuit, filed Tuesday, says she did not encourage his advances.

In one of the alleged incidents of harassment, the lawsuit says Necimo followed her to her car at the end of the school day, blocking her entry into the vehicle.

“I’m trying to figure you out. I’m trying to figure out whether you are gay or straight, because girls with short hair are usually gay,” he said to her.

After the teacher told him she was not gay, Necimo continued to block her from accessing her car, saying “What kind of guys do you like? Do you like rough guys or soft guys?"

He went on to make explicit comments about her sexual preferences.

The lawsuit describes other incidents, including one in which Necimo allegedly asked the teacher if she is a stripper or if her friends were strippers, according to the Paterson Times.

The newspaper reported that the teacher resigned on June 23, 2017 due to anxiety caused by Necimo's harassment.

The allegations against the former charter school director are the second this year. A former receptionist accused him of sexually harassing and touching her in a lawsuit filed in February.

The Turkish government accuses FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen of orchestrating the defeated July 15, 2016 coup in Turkey which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.
