GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — The Greeley-Evans school board has censured fellow board member Brett Reese for what they called violation of standards of conduct.

The censure issued Thursday also listed accusations made in a school board letter of sexually harassing a teacher and being intoxicated at a board meeting, according to the Greeley Tribune.

Reese rejected the censure on Thursday and said school board members are trying to set him up for a recall election, which he welcomed saying it would clear his name.

Reese is the board member who got attention earlier this year for his radio commentaries denouncing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Reese denies inappropriately touching a female teacher and making sexually suggestive comments. He also says he’s never been under the influence of alcohol.
