A General has lost a star after harassing an airman about her weight.
FoxNews reports that after an investigation into his professional conduct uncovered alleged bullying – going so far as making pig noises at a female colleague over her weight – a report says.
The allegations against Lt. Gen. Lee Levy, who retired as a two–not three-star–general on Nov. 1, were detailed in an Air Force Office of the Inspector General report recently obtained by the Air Force Times. Levy was the former leader of the Air Force Sustainment Center in Oklahoma, which provides maintenance for a variety of planes.
Witnesses reportedly told the inspector general that during Levy’s time there, he made numerous weight-related comments toward a woman under his command – despite her never having trouble meeting the branch’s fitness standards.
“Oink, oink… Are you really eating again?” the woman claims Levy told her while she was eating lunch one day, according to the Air Force Times.
