There are now three women accusing longtime NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw of sexual impropriety in the workplace.
Additionally, a group of women who worked for NBC said they were essentially coerced into signing a letter supporting Brokaw in the public.
Brokaw is the latest left-leaning celebrity to come under the scope of the #MeToo movement, which has also snared accused sexual assaulter Harvey Weinstein, a longtime Democratic Party donor.
Freelance writer Mary Reinholz wrote that Brokaw French kissed her inside her LA home during the 1960s after they met at a press conference and he helped her with a story.
“Brokaw made a pass at me 50 years ago in my rented hillside house . . . We talked and then, abruptly, he was embracing me and giving me a French kiss,” Reinholz wrote in a piece for the Villager.
“I pulled away, reminding him that he was married and a tryst was out of the question,” she wrote. “He said, ‘Yes, it would be unfair to Meredith,’ meaning his wife.”
Reinholz added, “I wouldn’t be writing about this if wasn’t for . . . Brokaw’s disparaging remarks about Linda Vester [who last Friday alleged Brokaw ‘grabbed’ her and ‘tried to force’ her to kiss him in the ’90s] . . . I believe her story is credible.”
