BROOKLYN COLLEGE’S ‘INDEPENDENT’ PROBE INTO ANTI-SEMITISM WASN'T SO INDEPENDENT
That being the case, the report that CUNY issued comes as a shocking non-surprise. It seems clear to the faculty and staff who were questioned that the attorney hired by CUNY was working too closely with CUNY’s own internal attorney. Their findings were a foregone conclusion.
The accusations of anti-Semitism following the conduct of Provost William Tramontano were not leveled by an individual but by many individuals; they were made not in relation to an isolated incident but after a pattern of behavior was established.
There are obvious holes in the CUNY report that I intend to point out to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
