Former federal prosecutor cited for misconduct in Nevada

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The former top federal prosecutor in Nevada has been cited for misconduct in an 8-year-old sex discrimination case.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2tgYgdn ) the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission determined earlier this year that a former female prosecutor was subjected to sex discrimination and retaliation while Greg Brower was in charge of the U.S. attorney's office in Nevada.

Brower is currently the FBI's top liaison with Congress during its investigation in Russian election meddling.

The eight-page decision by the commission supports an administrative judge's opinion that Brower acted hostile toward the prosecutor after she complained that he made a sexist remark. It also criticized the office for being slow to transfer her after she made the report.

Brower and a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office declined to comment.
