In the lawsuit, Crawford alleges that other officials and employees subjected him to various forms of harassment. They allegedly passed comments about his sexuality, size of his genitals, physique, his morals, and other unnecessary personal issues. The police chief also claims that no action was taken after he complained to unidentified officials. Among the defendants in the case are Mendham Township current and former committee members Maribeth Thomas, Samuel Tolley, Richard Merkt, and Amey Upchurch. They have been accused of planning to sully Crawford’s reputation.
Former committeeman does not recall complaints
Former committeeman Merkt said he did not recall Crawford ever complaining about sexual harassment during his tenure from 2011 to September 2014. According to Patch.com, the police chief’s press conference followed soon after Officer Robert Wysokowski filed a suit claiming that Crawford who had ordered the profiling of younger drivers did not promote Wysokowski because he failed to reach his target of profiling younger drivers ordered by the police chief. The lawsuit is currently under investigation by Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.
Merkt claimed that Crawford did not notify or seek approval from the Mayor or other elected officials prior to holding a press conference concerning the pending litigation. He alleges that the strained relationship between Crawford and the officials was due to the latter being kept in the dark about the issue. Other committee members either declined to comment or were not available.
