OSBI investigating former OU president David Boren

NORMAN, Okla. (KXII) - An University of Oklahoma graduate and former classroom aid claims former president David Boren kissed and touched in him a sexual manner numerous times.

The allegations are part of an investigation into whether Boren sexually harassed male aides.

The man, Jess Eddy, says one of Boren's attorneys reached out to him asking for a letter stating the allegations were untrue.

He says he wrote the letter, but did so in a state of emotional crisis and that what he wrote was not true.

Boren has continued to deny any allegations.

Boren was a Democratic governor in the late 1970s before being elected to the U.S. senate. He served as the president of OU from 1994 to 2018.
