Goldstein Sues

Former Village Voice writer/editor Richard Goldstein, who has been mocked by this blog numerous times over the years both for his long-running feud with Andrew Sullivan and his even longer-running obsession with the penises of various male political figures, has sued his former paper for sexual harassment, alleging that editor-in-chief David Forst and other staffers constantly made "lewd comments" about Goldstein's sexual orientation.

Now it should go without saying that the Voice, now that it's missing such wonderfully crazy people as Goldstein, Peter Noel, and Alissa Solomon, is now pretty much unreadable, especially now that smart people are running New York Press and it's no longer old crazy lefties vs. young crazy lefties. To me the biggest mystery of the Goldstein case is the Sullivan hasn't addressed it yet. I just hope he gets called as a character witness.
