JOHN F. STREET, who had characterized former Philadelphia Housing Authority executive director Carl Greene as "a true serial sexual harasser" before firing him in September 2010, stuck to his guns under cross-examination Thursday in federal court, where Greene is suing PHA for wrongful termination and almost $1 million in lost salary and benefits.
Street said that during his time investigating Greene as PHA chairman, he read passages from a PHA investigative report containing statements from the women who had filed sexual-harassment cases against Greene. Street characterized the statements as "this is exactly what happened to me . . . this is where I was touched." Greene settled the cases without informing the PHA board.
