FEMA head of personnel resigns amid sexual misconduct claims

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The recently resigned head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's personnel office has been accused of improper sexual relationships and creating a "toxic" environment.
  
That's according to a summary of an internal investigation by the agency. Preliminary results were completed Friday.
  
FEMA officials say Corey Coleman resigned June 18 amid the probe. Coleman is not named in the summary but officials at the agency confirmed the report refers to him.
  
FEMA's administrator Brock Long is referring the investigation to the Homeland Security Department's internal watchdog. He says such behavior is not tolerated. A call to Coleman's home was not returned.
  
The summary provided to The Associated Press also says he showed preferential treatment to fraternity brothers when hiring. It was first reported by the Washington Post.
