The director of Washington's Human Rights Commission has resigned following accusations that she created a “hostile work environment” for employees under her, reports the Oregonian. Susan Jordan was accused of describing some male colleagues as "gorgeous" and "cute" and "perky," and touching one man in a way that caused him anxiety. A report also accused her of referring to one employee as "our Native American" and another as the agency's "little receptionist." "No one should use those terminologies in this enlightened age," said Rev. Ellis H. Casson, one of the human rights commissioners who accepted her resignation.
