Wendy DaCosta on Boughton: “He’s changed…his reputation and his power have change him. He’s not the person that I knew”

Cross post from HatCityBLOG

Q: You said you’ve known Mayor Boughton for 30 years. Right? You’ve got to answer verbally.

A: Yes, I have.

Q: So you know him pretty well. Correct?

A: I did.

Q: You worked with him for, what, seven years about?

A: Yes.

Q: Seven, eight years. Does he seem like the kind of person to you that would sexually harass someone?

A: Yes.

Q: He does?

A: He does.

Q: Based on what?

A: He’s changed. He’s not the person — his reputation and his power have change him. He’s not the person that I knew.

Q: How has it changed him?

A: He’s become more arrogant and thinks because he is the mayor that he can do what he pleases.

Q: And you think that includes sexually harassing someone?

A: Yes.
