Irving Hamer

Deputy Superintendent of the Memphis City Schools Irving Hamer resigned Monday after commenting on an employee’s breasts. The remarks happened at a party in February hosted by Hamer’s boss, Superintendent Kriner Cash. The party was at Cash’s house and many members of Memphis City Schools’ top brass were there.

The woman filed a complaint after Hamer further offended her in an email with the subject line: “Apology.” In that email Hamer said he could not blame his behavior on the two or three small drinks he’d had that night.
