Frostburg SGA President Issues Statement on Twitter Harassment

November 22nd, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Saturday, the young woman who was racially harassed via anonymous Twitter accounts as she ran for President of the Frostburg State University Student Government Association issued a statement on her Facebook page. Ariyana Monee says she believed Cassie Conklin, who has been accused of operating the harasing accounts, was a supporter who supplied personal and financial support as the harassment was taking place. Monee also said she reached out for help from the university and police and received none. On Friday, WCBC was notified by Congressman David Trone's office that, after what it called a thorough investigation, Conklin is no long a member of the Trone staff. Conklin has not been formally charged, and has yet to comment on the allegations.
