Kansas revenue department lawyer ousted amid allegations of sexual harassment, inflammatory remarks

TOPEKA ó A Kansas revenue department attorney accused of sexual harassment and unprofessional comments to colleagues about lesbian law enforcement officers, Hispanic culture and female anatomy no longer works for the state, officials said Thursday.

Jerome Gorman, a Democrat who served as district attorney in Wyandotte County, was dismissed by the Kansas Department of Revenue following an inquiry by the state Department of Administration. He was hired into the administration of Gov. Sam Brownback in early 2017.

Resolution of Gormanís status followed publication by the Topeka Capital-Journal of a Jan. 3 story detailing toxic remarks and harassment attributed to Gorman. In addition, the Capital-Journal reported Marc McCune, a special agent in the revenue department, was fired in December after passing concerns of state employees about Gormanís conduct to revenue department lawyers.

McCune and Gorman worked in the revenue departmentís office of special investigations. Gormanís salary with the state was $102,000.
