E-mail Confirms Sexual Harassment Complaint in Scott Walker Administration

Manuel “Manny” Perez - Former Wisconsin
Dept. of Workforce Development
(DWD) Secretary

Patrick Marley and Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel broke a piece late Friday afternoon saying allegations of sexual harassment by former Administrative Services Administrator Allison Rozek against Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Secretary Manuel “Manny” Perez, the alleged harasser, were mentioned in an e-mail obtained by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Worth reiterating is that if Rozek were a victim, it is hardly upon her to affirmatively proceed to anyone with any allegation. A victim has no legal obligation to bring matters before the state, an employer, or in offenses of a more serious nature, other officials.

If the string of non-denial denials by the Walker administration regarding the allegations that Perez harassed Rozek [and Rozek complained] were to be followed by anyone in the Walker administration trying to trash Rozek, one can bet that such a smear campaign would not play well right now as Walker is facing a recall effort that looks to succeed beyond the wildest expectations of middle-class Wisconsin families.

I put nothing beyond the Scott Walker administration, and the good governor with the pipeline to God, and the Koch brothers.

Write Marley and Walker:

Records released Friday to the Journal Sentinel under the state's open records law included an Oct. 19 email from Rozek to Newson, who was then deputy secretary. Rozek said Newson had set up several meetings of the division she headed without including her.

'I cannot be effective at my job without being given a chance to attend,' she [Rozek] wrote. 'Also, I have sent many emails to you without a response and have asked to speak with you by phone at anytime that is convenient to you - and have been told you do not have time. In two weeks, I have not been given the opportunity to speak with you, yet you speak directly with my staff. Is this treatment due to the fact that I filed a harassment charge with (the Department of Administration) re the past secretary and my prior connection with the current secretary?'
