Michael Bloomberg accused of making lewd comments about women

from Linked In

Lawsuits filed against Michael Bloomberg are receiving renewed attention now that he’s running for president.

Several media reports have put a spotlight on a discrimination suit filed by Sekiko Sakai where she alleges Bloomberg told her in the 90s to “kill it” after she announced that she was pregnant.

The billionaire has repeatedly denied the accusation and Sakai, who settled the suit out of court, said she cannot comment.

Court records cited by ABC News quote her as saying I asked ‘What? What did you just say?’ He looked at me and repeated in a deliberate manner ‘kill it.'”

The National Review reports Bloomberg is accused of following the “kill it” comment with “Great! Number 16,” in reference to the 16 women in the office who were pregnant.

”Sexual harassment and sexual degredation of women at Bloomberg was pervasive,” Sakai’s lawsuit states.

The National Review says Bloomberg claims to have passed a lie detector test denying the allegations.

Explaining why he agreed to take the polygraph, Bloomberg said “I expected that those allegations would surface in the news media as I began to explore the possibility of entering the mayor’s race.”

According to ABC, at least 17 women have sued Bloomberg’s company with three specifically naming Bloomberg for contributing to a frat-like culture.
