Two Dallas executives at center of national Latino chamber scandal
Dallas
Two prominent Dallas executives, Javier Palomarez and Nina Vaca, are at the center of a brewing personnel dispute at the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, according to court documents and published report.

The nonprofit group that promotes Latino business interests is reviewing allegations that its CEO, Palomarez, has engaged in sexual harassment and padded his salary, according to a January court filing in Dallas County District Court.

Palomarez says that Vaca is behind the harassment charges and has led a campaign against him.  In Dallas County court filing, he said he is considering filing a lawsuit against Vaca and others associated with the chamber and foundation.

"No one but Mr. Palomarez is responsible for his current set of problems," said Vaca's lawyer, Charla Aldous.
