UC Berkeley probes staffer after post-protest Web campaign - SFGate

UC Berkeley probes staffer after post-protest Web campaign - SFGate: UC Berkeley is looking into allegations that a staff member was involved in an altercation during protests last week over a scheduled appearance by right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, campus officials said Monday.

The accusations against the staffer, who works in the University Development and Alumni Relations Department, emerged on ultraconservative fringe websites and on social media following Wednesday’s destructive protests.

While details of what — if anything — happened could not be confirmed, the worker quickly became the target of an online campaign, with some people calling for his arrest and others harassing and threatening him and his family.
