Otten Accuses SP Matthew Harrison of Sexual Harassment Settlement - $1 Million



Herman Otten is like a synod president - he does not answer letters either. This is a scan of his front page lead for July 27, 2015.

He was not clear about when Team Harrison wooed him for support -  banjo, ballad, and wives. Was that the first time in 2010 or recently? If that happened in 2010, it should have been reported in Christian News.

John W. Montgomery had a great description of  Christian News. He said something like this, "Each issue you grab your chest and wonder what kind of shock is in store for you - like reading the Police Gazette."

Harrison, 53, was elected Synod President in 2010.

"The 65th Convention of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod will be held July 9-14, 2016, in Milwaukee at the Wisconsin Center." Harrison is up for re-election.


A Missouri pastor said:
"This [Harrison story] was mailed to my congregation, and I suspect to many others.
Our parishioners are reading this."
