We continue in our friendly efforts to help UCOP News Clips notice the remarks of Regent Pattiz by providing links to the spreading story (since the story went unnoticed last week).

It's even got on Pattiz's Wikipedia page where one can read:
Pattiz has been criticized for making sexual jokes and remarks to women, according to an article published in the Los Angeles Times. Pattiz issued a statement that came close to an apology on November 1, 2016, stating that "There is no excuse for any such comments or making anyone feel uncomfortable. . . . If I did that, I sincerely apologize, and it will be a valuable learning experience.”
