Summer might be over, but things are still heating up in Dewey Beach. New allegations have come out accusing town manager Marc Appelbaum of making inappropriate and lewd comments about women while serving as town manager. The newest incident is alleged to have occur on July 21st of this year, nearly a month after the first allegations were brought to light.
Alderman Court Bailiff Don Robinson says he was in town hall talking with the women in the front office about people outside court, when Appelbaum chimed in with a story about a woman who adjusted herself in a mirrored-glass window Appelbaum had in his office, which faced the street. Robinson reported Appelbaum was “very demonstrative” and said that ‘she must have expected a male judge, as she was working real hard.’ After the story, an awkward silence fell over the office, and Robinson excused himself. Attorney Rick Cross submitted Robinson’s letter to Dewey Town Solicitor Frank Townsend yesterday, along with another call for Appelbaum’s suspension pending the outcome of the independent investigation.
