In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Bloomberg Decides To Release Female Former Employees from NDAs

I guess their internal polling with Democratic women is looking pretty bad. Elizabeth Warren seared him pretty badly during the debate.

BTW, notice the above video was cut by Bloomberg News.

According to a statement from the Bloomberg campaign:

I’ve had the company go back over its record and they’ve identified 3 NDAs that we signed over the past 30-plus years with women to address complaints about comments they said I had made. If any of them want to be released from their NDA so that they can talk about those allegations, they should contact the company and they’ll be given a release. I’ve done a lot of reflecting on this issue over the past few days and I’ve decided that for as long as I’m running the company, we won’t offer confidentiality agreements to resolve claims of sexual harassment or misconduct going forward.

I recognize that NDAs, particularly when they are used in the context of sexual harassment and sexual assault, promote a culture of silence in the workplace and contribute to a culture of women not feeling safe or supported. It is imperative that when problems occur, workplaces not only address the specific incidents, but the culture and practices that led to those incidents. And then leaders must act.

  1. Bloomberg has the charisma of a piece of wood. You’d think someone who made his fortune in media, and is a politician, would know how to create interest and excitement when he’s “on air” or being quoted. But that’s not the case. Very strange.

    1. You are so right. When he was Mayor, he used to be interviewed by my preferred radio station every month. They said he is the most frigid person. He only would come in through a back entrance. Never spoke to any of the employees, even if they spoke to him. He went in, did the interview, and left. Contrast that with Trump. He talks to everybody—which gives him an opportunity to find out what’s on voter’s minds. Bloomberg only knows what his polling tells him. Clearly, he didn’t learn anything from Hillary.
