Former top adviser to DC mayor sexually harassed additional third woman, investigation finds


John Falcicchio, a former top adviser to Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, made “unwanted sexual advances” to a female staffer, according to an independent investigation. 

Falcicchio, 44, resigned 14 months ago after two female employees accused him of sexual harassment and attorneys for one of the women made her allegations public. The investigation conducted by the law firm Arnold & Porter has now found that a third woman did not file a sexual harassment complaint with the Mayor’s Office of Legal Counsel but that she ultimately left her job due to Falcicchio’s behavior, the Washington Post reported.
