Posted on 10/27/2009 10:25:57 AM PDT by OldDeckHand
A former Letterman writer claims Dave's show was a "hostile, sexually charged atmosphere" -- and "sexual politics" played a role in why she eventually quit the job.
The woman making the claim is Nell Scovell -- who spent roughly 5 months working for Dave back in 1990.
In an article for Vanity Fair, Scovell claims during her employment, she was well aware that Dave and other high-level male employees were having sexual relations with female staffers.

Scovell claims she's not looking to take any legal action against Dave or the show
It’s just sex. Like when Clinton did it.
But when OTHER bosses chased willing sexy secretaries around the desk. That was wrong.
At least that’s how NOW tells it. But they were cool with rape and workplace sexual harassment charges against Herr Bill.
I’ll take “Broke TV Hosts” for $1,000, Alex.
Sounds like it was a modern-day harem there for Letterman and company.
I’m not shedding any tears for Letterman. You pray to the altar of PC, you ought to take one in the gut for it as well.
Let it begin, and it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Karma, Dave, karma.
[In the Lippman’s office.]
MR. LIPPMAN: I’m going to get right to the point. It has come to my attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office. Is that correct?
GEORGE: Who said that?
MR. LIPPMAN: She did.
GEORGE: Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frouned upon, you know, cause I’ve worked in a lot of offices and I tell you peope do that all the time.
MR. LIPPMAN: You’re fired.
GEORGE: Well you didn’t have to say it like that.
MR. LIPPMAN: I want you out of here by the end of the day.
GEORGE: What about the whole Christmas spirit thing? Any flexability there?

It’s hard to make a 19-year-old infraction for sexual favortism stick.
“What makes you laugh today can make you cry tomorrow”
Looks like Sara Silverman’s older sister....
Statute of limitations ran out a long time ago for her; so, even if she wanted to sue, it would be tossed out.
>>>...Dave and other high-level male employees...
Their Worldwide Pants always on the floor?
I know. But, it's still fun to fire up the troops.
The 19 year old allegation makes it possible for lawyers to sue based on a long-standing pattern/environment. Big BIG bucks from Worldwide Pants AND the network.
She's not going to be making much money off of this, but she might get him to lose his job. That might be satisfaction enough.
no statute of limitations applies if you’re a wise latina.
