Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg has had setback after setback this week.
Bloomberg’s disastrous debate performance only compounded his problems.
But Bloomberg’s nightmare is just beginning. A former employee just came forward about his outrageous lies.
Mike Bloomberg is swiftly moving up in the polls.
The former New York City Mayor has spent millions to buy attention and drown out his competitors’ ads.
But his campaign has been marked by controversy as multiple clips have surfaced of Bloomberg making blatantly racist remarks and criminally profiling minorities.
He also was heard calling for violence against minorities by police forces, adding heat to an already tumultuous situation where police are viewed as the enemy by many minorities.
And just when he thought his campaign was taking, it’s about to all come crashing down after a former employee came forward about the candidate’s outrageous lies.
Bloomberg’s company is facing a lawsuit from a former female employee who claims that she was subjected to a hostile workplace that discriminated against women and minorities.
The woman alleges that she was fired from her job following pressure to sign a non-disclosure—all days after she was hospitalized for an illness.
A representative for Bloomberg’s company claims that the woman signed a separation agreement after her whole division was let go, but the woman is now speaking out against this claim.
Fox News reports:
“In 2019, she discovered that this representation was false and that in fact she had been replaced by a younger worker,” says a court document filed Feb. 11 by her attorney Donna Clancy. She also tried to rescind the agreement, but when Bloomberg did not accept, she sued for fraudulent inducement, as well as age, sex, and disability discrimination.
Evans, who had started working at Bloomberg in 2010, alleges that soon after she went back to work in June 2015 after undergoing treatment for breast cancer, a new acting CFO of the company’s media department began excluding her from meetings, ignored requests and changed working conditions. Her amended complaint, filed in December 2019, says this affected her and other employees, “in particular, those who were female and/or over 40” like her.
Evans goes on to claim that the CFO of the company made her fire several women over the age of 40, and made her fear she was next.
This work environment contributed to Evans suffering from anxiety and depression, she claims, as she relied on her employer-provided health insurance to pay for continuing treatment for breast cancer. Evans reached her breaking point on Nov. 17, 2016, when a close friend was terminated. According to court documents, she had a panic attack that day that “was so severe and uncontrollable that she immediately left work and went to see her primary care physician, who directed her to the emergency room upon observing that she was in the midst of a nervous breakdown.”
Evans was admitted to a hospital “for urgent psychological care,” and she remained there overnight. During her stay, she claims, Grossman called her and her husband answered — telling him that she was in the hospital and might need to take leave for mental disability.
Days after this incident, a human resources representative called her and told her that her job had been eliminated.
She had been told it was because her entire division was eliminated, but she later learned that that was not the truth.
To further make matters worse, she had been replaced with a younger woman.
She is suing Bloomberg for five million dollars in damages but states that her ultimate goal is to reveal Bloomberg’s misdeeds.
