Minnis, who was included on eBossWatch's most recent list apparently because the state filed a formal complaint against him this year, finds himself in good company. The list includes several alleged serial sexual harassers and assorted power-abusers, from low Starbucks and Little Caesar's Pizza managers to big names like actors Steven Seagal and Casey Affleck, and U.S. Representative Eric Massa of New York.
