California legislators aren’t the only ones named in documents released Friday regarding public harassment in California’s state capital.

Ontario resident Elizabeth Nan Rider, a San Bernardino County planning commissioner appointed by Supervisor Curt Hagman, was previously a district director for former Assemblyman Bill Emmerson, R-Redlands. She was accused of creating a hostile work environment in February 2009.

“By your own admission, you have 1) sent sexually explicit emails and jokes to your subordinates, and 2) initiated and/or engaged in conversations with your subordinates about your own sex life, the sex lives of current and former subordinates, and the sex life of another individual with whom you are acquainted,” the letter, signed by Jon Waldie, the chief administrative officer of the California State Assembly, reads in part.
