In a post below, Steve Penny, former CEO of USA Gymnastics was arrested.  Why should USAT care? 
 
If I were the USAT BOD with Gitelman as the catalyst for all the lawsuits and changes in Safe Sport and its own #Metoo, IMHO USAT BOD has some issues of its own.
 
The biggest issue is former Chair of the USAT BOD who was not qualified to hold that position and took it upon himself to try to run the administration and USAT let him - had Devin Johnson not been allowed to screw with the policies and procedures and allowed to make decisions he had no right to make, there would have been no Gitelman lawsuit.  Gitelman also wouldn't have gone to jail, but what can I say? Devin Johnson has given at least one deposition and his actions were chronicled in the deposition and documents in the action.  I hear he is due for another.
 
His actions and their affect on the situation have been described in detail to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Committee investigating.  I can guarantee you in vast detail along with depositions from the Gitelman case and his being chair during the Steven and Jean Lopez debacle.
 
I would say Devin Johnson needed to resign this board long ago.  He has conflicts and his actions have caused great expense to the organization.  Why is this incompetent still on the BOD?  Why hasn't the rest of the BOD done something here?
 
In addition to his attempts to run the organization administratively which lead to the loss of the best secretary USAT ever had:
 
The first night he was elected chair, he allowed the USAT BOD to DELETE the Code of Ethics and the Conflict of Interest policy.  It took me almost 3 months of nagging to finally get across to him what had happened and another month to vote in the stand alone.
 
He personally allowed Gitelman to coach at the 2014 US Open when on Oct of 2013 there had been a vote of the BOD to suspend Gitelman.  Johnson personally decided with discussion with the attorney, to unsuspend Gitelman basically because they were afraid Gitelman would sue.  Who was more important?  The attacked or the accusers?
 
Let's also not forget that he was part and party to bylaw changes and not holding required elections in 2015, so that in January 2016 neither he nor any independent whose term was expired were technically and literally off the BOD. I had to tell them they knocked themselves off and the first action of the January 2016 meeting was to re-elect themselves.
  
He was chair when Steven Lopez and Jean Lopez were allowed to have their rape investigations suspended so they could attend the Olympics. He was chair during those same Olympics when Peter Lopez made it all the way to the Olympics, was given credentials even though he had been suspended from USAT for 5 years a month before.
 
I could go on and on but the bottom line is Devin needs to go now.  Not only that my other question is where were the other BOD members and why didn't they stop him before so much damage occurred?  Trust me - I know they were aware.  Trust me also, every investigation of the USAT #metoo is well aware of Johnson's involvement in allowing all this to occur in violation of Safe Sport and USAT's own Sexual Harassment Policy and Code of Ethics.  BTW - read his deposition in Gitelman case and learn that even in his 3rd year as Chair of the BOD he was woefully ignorant of the organization's organic documents.
 
Why is he still on the USAT BOD?  Why hasn't the BOD taken action because this will continue to be an albatross around their necks as all this continues?
