Cortez amenities include restaurants, shopping, vineyards, breweries, and lodging.Thomas Cavaness stood in the back of a darkened room at a political campaign event one night in early 2012 when he felt someone reach over and grab his inner thigh near his crotch.
In the document and interviews, Cavaness, a former Texas Army National Guard member and field organizer for a political campaign, said he felt it was important to come forward as part of the #Me Too movement.
“One thing I know about Thomas is that he’s very much for justice, and right and wrong, and he doesn’t like people getting away with doing things that are wrong,” she said in an interview.
A second friend, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of fear of retribution, said Cavaness told him Rosenthal “made advances at him.” “He told me that he felt (Rosenthal) was a little handsy,” the friend said in an interview.
It made him very angry, and he didn’t know what to do about it,” she said.
Briggs said she is not surprised he is now coming forward.
