Him too? Tom Brokaw hit with two sexual harassment claims

The Washington Post published a piece in its Style section Thursday night called “NBC News faces skepticism in remedying in-house sexual harassment,” but the buried lede seemed to be that former anchor Tom Brokaw was being hit with charges of sexual harassment from two women. Brokaw denies both charges.

Variety reports:

In a series of interviews with Variety conducted over several months, Vester alleged that Brokaw physically tried to force her to kiss him on two separate occasions, groped her in a NBC conference room and showed up at her hotel room uninvited. Two friends who Vester told at the time corroborated her story with Variety, and she shared her journal entries from the time period.

The Washington Post reports that a second woman claims that Brokaw “acted inappropriately toward her in the ’90s, when she was a young production assistant and he was an anchor.”

#MeToo has claimed another one. I’m pretty ambivalent on the man himself but I never expected to hear these type of accusations hit him. https://t.co/P1jGkvCnzy
