Elections Worker Challenges Firing For Behavior

A state elections board worker has been fired after several female employees accused him of inappropriate behavior.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday that four women signed affidavits saying that board business officer Ralph Gable called them pet names, used sexually charged language and installed what looked like a camera in his office. Gable was placed on paid leave in June, returned to work, but was fired after his supervisor received new complaints.

Gable is appealing his firing and said last week the women are conspiring against him.

The newspaper said he made nearly $49,000 a year. His job duties included enforcing federal workplace discrimination laws.
