GALVESTON — Former Chief Financial Officer William R. Elger played it fast and loose with comments and texts to a female employee, even suggesting over lunch that she unbutton the top of her blouse in exchange for vacation time, according to allegations in documents released Tuesday by the University of Texas Medical Branch.

But Elger’s flirtatious, sometimes lewd, behavior turned to anger when that female employee complained about him to medical branch officials, according to allegations in documents created during a sexual-harassment investigation.

The female employee, whose name was redacted from documents the medical branch released by order of the Texas Attorney General’s office, also accuses medical branch officials of ignoring her complaints about Elger.
