    Famous Mass. Psychiatrist Keith Ablow Denies Allegations in Ex-Patient's Suit

    A renowned Massachusetts psychiatrist who has appeared on several television shows is facing a lawsuit by a former patient who says they engaged in "physical sexual contact."

    The negligence suit, filed in Newburyport Superior Court, alleges that Dr. Keith Ablow sent the woman emails and texts "during all hours of the day and night," made comments about her appearance, encouraged sexual conversations during treatment sessions and "rewarded" her with free sessions.

    The woman is seeking at least $5 million in damages.

    Ablow told The Salem News Monday that "I categorically deny each and every allegation."

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
