EMBATTLED NAVY SKIPPER BLAMES FEMALE
© 2016 MilitaryCorruption.com
A boozed-up Navy captain, in trouble for (allegedly) sexually harassing a female officer aboard the USS Anzio, claimed his "victim" was the one who came on to him. A board of inquiry at Norfolk Naval Station didn't buy that bilge, and unanimously recommended CAPT Brian Sorenson be forced to retire after being busted one grade in rank.
Final decision on what will ultimately happen to the 1991 Naval Academy grad will be made in the near future by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus. You can bet the farm that Sorenson will lose a stripe and be retired from the service. He was fired as captain of his warship last September.
Sorenson initially got in trouble for hijinks in a bar, where he was seen to grab his accuser's butt and later made what she called "lewd suggestions." MilitaryCorruption.com also reported some months ago, that the captain was so drunk he allegedly asked a male sailor if he "liked anal sex."
Obviously, this Annapolis ring-knocker has a hard time holding his liquor.
PUTTING THE BLAME ON HIS ACCUSER
In a unique and bizarre defense, Sorenson maintained the female officer offered to give him a "B. J." in exchange for awarding her a surface warfare pin. She told the board she said the words, but meant it as a "joke" and incredulous response to his proposition. In no way, the "victim" testified, did she intend to actually drop to her knees in front of her boss.
Sorenson didn't help himself any by holding separate meetings with his chiefs and subordinate officers, urging them to have instant amnesia about his boozy antics aboard ship and at a civilian bar in Norfolk last year.
We would have loved to have been a bug on the wall when Sorenson was taken to "captain's mast." The Navy is usually loathe to make a USNA grad walk the plank, but in this case, too many people witnessed Sorenson's apparent problems with the bottle for him to get off with just a slap-on-the-wrist.
Horrible Holly Graf, the abrasive and abusive former skipper of the USS Cowpens, is also an Annapolis product. She threw hard objects at male subordinate's heads and used foul language well-known to Hillary Clinton. Graf even throttled two officers, grabbing them by the throat, but in the end, she kept her rank. The only "punishment" the sea witch and "female Captain Bligh" received for her egregious misdeeds was failing to make "admiral," as her sister already had done. Many of our readers were just happy to see her finally out of the Navy.
