Probe: Ex-Boss allowed harassment

Former Blue Angels lead pilot Capt. Greg McWherter has been found guilty by the Navy of violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice in a case of sexual harassment involving the elite flight demonstration team when he commanded it for nearly four years ending in 2012. The probe focused on allegations that he allowed sexual harassment within the Pensacola-based flight demonstration squadron, the Navy said. In a statement, Vice Adm. David Buss said that the investigation concluded that McWherter's behavior as commander of the Blues was "completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in any Navy squadron, let alone our elite flight demonstration team."
