Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is swarming with controversy.
Several scandals have popped up, including evidence of racism and discrimination.
And Michael Bloomberg Is facing one huge lawsuit. What happens next will astound you.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is a latecomer to the presidential race.
But his fellow candidates have wasted no time in launching attacks at him.
And Elizabeth Warren just attacked Bloomberg for a substantial lawsuit. How he reacted will astonish you.
After taking the debate stage Wednesday night, Mayor Bloomberg was met with a wave of boos from the audience.
The audience’s reaction was to the refusal of Bloomberg to release 17 women from non-disclosure agreements. These women have all filed lawsuits against Bloomberg and his company. These women had wished to go public with their testimonies, but are bound by NDAs.
Bloomberg refused to release these women from their agreements, yet is telling his version of the story to the American public.
Daily Caller reports:
“We have very few non-disclosure agreements,” Bloomberg said. “None of them accused me of doing anything, other than, maybe they didn’t like a joke I told. These would be agreements between two parties that wanted to keep it quiet and that’s up to them. They signed those agreements and will live with it.”
But his comments were met with backlash from both the audience and his rival candidates.
And Elizabeth Warren tore Bloomberg apart regarding his comments.
“You’re releasing them on television tonight?” Warren asked.
“They signed the agreements and that’s what we’re gonna live with,” Bloomberg said.
Former Vice President Joe Biden also joined Warren in speaking against Bloomberg.
“It’s easy. All the mayor has to do is say ‘you are released from the non-disclosure agreement’” Biden said. “This is about transparency.”
But Bloomberg refused to budge and release the women from their agreements.
“I’ve said we’re not going to end these agreements, because they were made consensually, and they have every right to expect they will stay private,” the former mayor said.
But critics allege the NDAs were signed under pressure of losing out on a large financial settlement which Bloomberg detractors claim rendered the NDAs nonconsensual.
Several of these women allege that rampant sexism, ageism, and racism took place within the company.
They also went on to speak of how they were lied to and released from their position, only to be replaced with a younger woman.
In the wake of the debate – after which Bloomberg’s favorability plunged 20 points according to a Morning Consult Poll – the former New York City Mayor released three women from NDAs to tell their story about comments Bloomberg made.
However, this did not make the scandal disappear.
In fact, it only served to highlight the fact that Bloomberg did not release any of the women from NDAs who made allegations of sexual harassment.
The Democratic Party, with their cries for equality and feminism, would never nominate a president with so many cries against him.
Bloomberg has lost this race before he even began.
Warren and other candidates will never allow him to progress in this race further than he already has.
And his days on the campaign trail are already coming to a close.
