Albany (WSYR-TV) – The New York State Fair Assistant Director – whose salary was listed as more than $100,000 – has been fired for making lewd comments.
Karl Gustafson, whose role in the position began a little more than a month ago, was terminated for creating a “hostile work environment.”
He was dismissed on May 22.
Agriculture and Markets Spokesperson Joe Morrissey said they acted swiftly when they learned of the matter.
He declined to say what the comments were or who they were directed toward.
