Frey went on to say the staffer in question will now be supervised by Maine’s chief deputy attorney general, Christopher Taub, in order to avoid conflicts of interest “as this personal relationship continues.”
“This is to ensure that we have appropriate boundaries between us. I should have done this once we realized we had feelings for one another,” Frey said.

“It was an error in judgment and for that I am sorry,” he added.
According to the Maine State Government Policy Against Harassment, “Supervisors who become personally involved with a subordinate are required to report the relationship to their supervisors so that a change in reporting structure can be considered.”
