Although these allegations have only received attention today, Griffin’s former wife has been sharing information regarding this matter for months now. Audrey Griffin’s twitter is here, where you can explore further for yourself.
How can someone do ALL of this and get away with it… @SmithRaps @Tadj315 @CBCNews @SteveClarkeMLB @vivekmjacob @Gleasonavenue @ShamsCharania @MaheshNYCTO @AaronBenRose @michaelgrange @kiranhothi @spencesmi @JLew1050 @KCJHoop @SmithRaps @Bulls_Jay @nba @Raptors #AdrianGriffin pic.twitter.com/qZ1ID82tHs

Griffin is a high ranking employee, and if he is guilty of these allegations, this shines a real light on the Raptors willingness to overlook things in the hiring process, or with current employees.
The Raptors immediately cut ties with Kay Felder after his domestic violence charges came to light. James Johnson’s domestic assault charges didn’t seem to spur on any action on the behalf of the Raptors, some time ago. Griffin hasn’t been charged with anything as of yet, and his legal dispute is reportedly pertaining to alimony and child support arrangements.
We’ll have more on this when/if more information comes to light.
Let’s hope the system works to protect everyone involved appropriately.
