Scott Allie, the long-time Dark Horse editor, has stepped down from his position as Executive Senior Editor at the publisher. Allie was promoted and/or demoted to the position from Editor In Chief in September 2015, a position he held since October 2012. 

The Shirley Temple impersonator had a long, but troubled time at Dark Horse amid various sexual harassment claims. Janelle Asselin wrote a detailed report of his behavior in October 2015, which includes Joe Harris' statement.

After the convention let out on Thursday night, July 9th, I went to dinner in town before returning to the Hilton Bayfront hotel where I was staying for the show. There had been a party in the hotel bar that was pretty well attended by a lot of comics professionals, company folks and other people. Upon walking in, I noticed Scott Allie at the bar and thought to go say hi. I walked up to him and I extended my hand expecting to shake his... when, instead, he reached down and grabbed my crotch. Just went for it and squeezed. I was stunned, I guess? Not what I was expecting, obviously. Not what's ever happened to me at this or any other convention over many years. So I try to back away a little, still shocked, when he leans in and bites my right ear. Just really floored by what was going on—I've never had any interaction with him like this before whatsoever—I froze there for a second, when he says to me, drunkenly, "You're doing a great job on your books..." before stumbling away.

Former Dark Horse editor summed up the Scott Allie leaving Dark Horse situation in one tweet.
