    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) drafted a document her primary opponent Mike Bloomberg can sign to release his former employees from nondisclosure agreements (NDAs). Warren, who has been calling on Bloomberg to release people who used to work for his company from the secrecy agreements for months, unveiled her document Thursday during a CNN town hall in Nevada. “So I used to teach contract law. And I thought I would make this easy. I wrote up a release and covenant not to sue. And all that Mayor Bloomberg has to do is download it. I'll text it. Sign...

    Harvard University has suspended an economics professor accused of sexual harassment after a probe determined he “engaged in unwelcome conduct,” according to a report. Roland G. Fryer Jr., 42, was placed on a two-year administrative leave and his campus research lab will permanently shutter as a result of the investigation, the Harvard Crimson reported Wednesday.

    Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in high school, faced allegations from her former employer that she engaged in "unwelcome, sexually offensive conduct" in 2000. The woman claims she was gang-raped at a party where Kavanaugh was present.  She is represented by noted porn lawyer and Democratic presidential candidate Michael Avenatti. Daily Caller: WebTrends voluntarily dismissed its suit after one month. Avenatti told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the case was ended because it was "completely bogus." Swetnick's alleged conduct took place in June 2000, just three weeks after she started working at...
  • Actor Morgan Freeman Accused of Sexual Harassment, Inappropriate Behavior by Multiple Women

    Morgan Freeman has been accused of sexual misconduct by eight women. Sixteen people spoke to CNN about the actor's alleged inappropriate behavior, describing multiple troubling incidents throughout his career. In all, 16 people spoke to CNN about Freeman as part of this investigation, eight witnesses and eight who claim to be victims. A young production assistant said that in the summer of 2015, while she was working on Freeman's bank heist comedy "Going In Style", she was subjected to several months of harassment. She alleged that Freeman repeatedly touched her without permission, resting his hand on her lower back or...

    Also, I have a confession, which I realise may disturb some readers. I was recently contacted by a very pleasant reporter who offered me the opportunity to relate my experiences with a hitherto unexposed sexual predator who, apparently, serially forced himself on women a couple of decades ago. With a surprising degree of confidence, the friendly reporter suggested the alleged roll call of victims included me. It was with a sadness reminiscent of former Greens senator Larissa Waters’ upon discovering her Canadian-ness, that I was forced to report the man had never touched me. Or if he did, I’d missed...
  • CNN Reporter: Before The Dam Broke On Franken, The Silence From Democrats Was 'Remarkable'

    Well, the dam broke for Sen. Al Franken (D-MN). He’s going to leave. After eight women accused him of sexual misconduct, along with the resignation of Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) who also faced sexual harassment accusations, Democratic leadership decided it was time to clean house. It’s not a profile in courage. It’s not a come to Jesus moment. It’s all politics, which you already know. Franken is from a Democratic state with a Democratic governor. He was expendable and his exit allows Democrat to refocus their pressure on Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. It still doesn’t erase the fact...

    A California woman who worked for a sports marketing firm led by Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit alleging that the retired football star required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips. The lawsuit, filed Monday in Orange County, Calif., also alleges that Moon, 61, committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman’s crotch during a trip to Seattle this year. The suit further accuses Moon of pulling off the woman’s bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink during a separate trip to Mexico in October. A publicist...

    Democrat Kathleen Rice is as fed up with Washington D.C. as the rest of the country. During an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper Wednesday night, Rice fumed about the double standard between the private sector and taxpayer funded politicians being protected on Capitol Hill. "It's that kind of response that leads everyday Americans to say, 'What is going on in Washington? Why is everyone in the private sector held accountable and yet when the same kind of behavior is exposed in Washington D.C., they circle the wagons and protect their own?'" Rice said. "I for one am not going to...

    An aspiring actress says Harvey Weinstein used Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell to dupe her into thinking he would help her with her career — only to use her for sex. British actress Kadian Noble said Tuesday she was head-over-heels impressed when she first met Weinstein at an event in London because he was hanging out with model Campbell and had megastar Oprah “swinging off his arm.” “I thought, obviously, this man has something amazing in store for me,” she said during a teary-eyed press conference in Manhattan to discuss the sex trafficking lawsuit she filed a day earlier against...

    Saw this via facebook--wouldya believe it. The Left wants to support Al Franken and help prevent false accusations against the likes of Keith Ellison and Bernie Sanders. Oh yeah, Comrade Bernie sure looks like the next Weinstein, Spacey, etc... But of course they must support Al because he stands for women's rights. Right. >>Don't jump so easily to destroy Senator Franken. From all accounts he stands for the rights of women and all progressive causes. Why is this important? Today it's Al Franken being frivolously charged with sexual assault, tomorrow it could be Keith Ellison or Bernie Sanders. Let's understand...

    Ain’t that odd: based just on the transcript of his interview with Sean Hannity, John Heilemann can look at Roy Moore and say, “that’s a perp right there.” . . . So surely supersleuth Heilemann must have been aware of the sexual misconduct by Mark Halperin, which led to his firing from MSNBC and loss of other engagements. After all, Heilemann worked side-by-side with Halperin for a decade, co-authoring two books and co-hosting a TV show with him, among other projects. Get the rest of the story and view the video at FinkelBlog.

    Natasha Henstridge was watching a movie on Brett Ratner’s couch when she fell asleep. She was a 19-year-old fashion model; he was an up-and-coming music video director in his early 20s. They had been hanging out in front of the TV with friends at his New York apartment. But when Henstridge woke up, the others had left. She was alone with Ratner. She got up to leave, Henstridge said, but he blocked the doorway with his body and wouldn’t budge. He began touching himself, she said, then forced her to perform oral sex. “He strong-armed me in a real way....

    A key piece is missing from the national discussion about sexual harassment. The media’s spotlight on this terrible epidemic is welcome news for females everywhere, as the culture of silence has finally been dealt a severe blow. But, what about the men? I’m not referring to the lowlifes that victimize women—men that view us as objects to be groped, manhandled, or as the punch line in a dirty joke. I’m talking about the men who have witnessed this harassment or know it’s happened, but cowardly choose to stay silent.

    Let's look at two pictures side by side and see if we can tell how they're different. In one panel, we see a famous TV political analyst who apparently had the charming habit of pressing his erect, if clothed, penis against the bodies of young women who worked with and for him. That was Mark Halperin. In the second panel, we have former President George H.W. Bush, in a wheelchair, age 89, posing for a photo with a number of others, including his wife Barbara, and an actress called Heather Lind. Lind says she felt moved to share her trauma...

    CNN has reported that five women have accused Mark Halperin of sexual harassment during his time at ABC News some years ago. Halperin has been an MSNBC contributor for years, and a regular on the Morning Joe panel. Mika Brzezinski addressed the story this morning: "CNN is reporting allegations regarding our friend, Mark Halperin . . . I'm sure we'll be talking about it again when we know more about it." My take: it might sound like a cliche, but I was surprised and saddened to see the story. It's easy to lump all MSM figures in the same biased...

    While trying not to indulge in schadenfreude over those hypocritical Hollywood elites who've claimed to stand for "women's rights," only to be accused of sexually harassing them, I noticed "(hashtag)MeToo" trending on Twitter. At (hashtag)MeToo, women who have been sexually harassed are invited to post their experiences, and many have done so, including four female U.S. senators. I asked my adult daughter and oldest granddaughter if they had ever encountered sexual harassment. My daughter said at a previous job her boss "invited" her to sit on his lap. She refused and no longer works there. Even more shocking was the...

SNIP “And I have to say, Hillary’s interview with Fareed Zakaria was shameful in its deflection and its disingenuousness,” the celebrity chef said. “Know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She’s not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years.” SNIP

In the video, Wylie Mao, a field organizer for the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic Party of Florida in West Palm Beach is caught on camera saying that the Hillary Clinton campaign would excuse his sexual assault of a fellow female campaign worker.

    The feud between Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton hit a boiling point when [she} accused the billionaire of sexism. Trump took to Twitter to slam Bill Clinton for his former sex scandals and had a “penchant for sexism." Here’s a run down: Eileen Wellstone allegedly was sexually assaulted by a 23-year old Bill Clinton at a pub near Oxford University. He admitted to the encounter, but claimed it was consensual. Nonetheless, he ended up leaving the school a year after the incident without a degree. According to Capitol Hill Blue, while he was dating Hillary at Yale University,...

    EL CAJON, Calif. - A female El Cajon police officer has sued her department on allegations she was passed over for a promotion because she cooperated with an investigation into a former sergeant accused of sending lewd pictures to her and several other women in the agency. The lawsuit, filed Monday in San Diego Superior Court, alleges ECPD demonstrated sexual discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination and disability discrimination against the officer, identified in the documents as Christine Greer. In the lawsuit, Greer claims that former Sgt. Richard Gonsalves texted her a nude photo of his genitals. Last month, Team10 learned that...
