Fired Habitat founder expects Chapters to Demand his Return

AMERICUS, Ga. (AP)_The founder of Habitat for Humanity, fired over a sexual harassment allegation, says many of the organization's local chapters are outraged and want him reinstated.

Habitat for Humanity says it fired Millard Fuller from his job as president and also dismissed his wife, Linda Fuller, who co-founded the Christian home-building ministry with him 28 years ago.

The board's executive committee said in a statement that it fired the Fullers after months of conflict and a lack of cooperation by Millard Fuller in response to allegations of his "inappropriate conduct" toward a female staffer.

The board said it had found "insufficient evidence" to substantiate the harassment claims, and the 70-year-old Fuller has denied any wrongdoing.

Several women accused Fuller of sexual harassment in 1990 because of a kiss on a cheek, a hug and a compliment. While Fuller acknowledged he did those things, he explained it was because he had grown up in a touchy-feely country culture and he meant no harm.
