LOS ANGELES (CBS SF) – A University of California regent who apologized for making lewd comments captured on audio faces additional scrutiny after a second recording of lewd remarks reportedly surfaced.
The UCLA Daily Bruin student newspaper obtained the leaked recording in which a man talked about a sexual encounter and pornography in explicit detail.
The recording ends with the man saying “I’m a regent of the University of California, Chairman of National Security Labs at Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore and I’m a 20-year reserve deputy sheriff.”
Regent Norman Pattiz holds all the above titles. In addition, Pattiz is chairman of radio podcaster Courtside Entertainment Group and founder of the original Westwood One radio network.
According to the Daily Californian student newspaper, the recording came from an anonymous source who worked with Pattiz at Courtside’s PodcastOne network, a popular podcast platform founded by Pattiz.
Last month, Pattiz apologized after a recording surfaced where he is heard asking a woman taping a bra commercial if she could hold her breasts.
After the first recording was made public, the University of California created new guidelines (.pdf) requiring all regents to undergo training in sexual harassment prevention.
According to the UC Regents website, Pattiz was first appointed to the Board of Regents in 2001 by Gov. Gray Davis and reappointed in 2014 by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Pattiz’s term expires in 2026.
