Denver mayor accused of sexual harassment by former member of security team, report says
A former member of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock’s security detail claimed the Democratic politician sexually harassed her while she was on his team, according to a report.
Leslie Branch-Wise, a police detective in Colorado’s capital, told KMGH that the alleged comments and inappropriate text messages happened while she worked for him between 2011 and 2012.
In the texts, which she provided to the outlet, Hancock allegedly made comments on her physical appearance, once telling her, after spotting her on television at an NBA game, that she looked “sexy.”
“Enjoy!! You better bring them some luck!” the text said, according to KMGH. “You look sexy in all that black! LOL!”
In another text, Hancock appeared to comment on her hairstyle, allegedly writing, “loved the short doo. You made it hard on a brotha to keep it correct everyday.”…
Branch-Wise told KMGH that she wasn’t planning on filing a claim against the mayor.
“I just want people to know that I’m a woman, I have children, and I’m a victim of sexual harassment,” Branch-Wise told the outlet. “It made me physically sick. It was extremely scary. And I dealt with it at that time the best way that I could.”
