Money cant buy love, rent it perhaps but not buy it but it sure can buy an army of body guards to keep us unwashed proletariat away from shortround. -

Al Hunt, Bloomberg News' former Washington editor and one of the organization's most visible faces in politics until his 2018 exit, was accused over the course of years by multiple women of giving unsolicited massages and verbally berating employees for minor infractions.

Sources tell Business Insider that Hunt was known to favor a small group of women that some employees called "Al's Angels," giving them plum reporting assignments, invitations to key meetings with DC power brokers, and in at least some cases, career advancement, according to former employees.

Business Insider has learned of at least two instances in which Bloomberg agreed to pay women to settle potential claims over Hunt's conduct.

Hunt denies touching anyone inappropriately and says he was a supportive boss who did not engage in favoritism.

In a statement, a Bloomberg LP spokesperson declined to dispute any of the claims regarding Hunt, saying "there are certainly instances where we wish we had handled some complaints differently."

Al Hunt, Bloomberg News' former Washington editor and one of the organization's most visible faces in politics until his 2018 exit, was accused over the course of years by multiple women of giving unsolicited massages and verbally berating employees for minor infractions, Business Insider has learned. Despite at least two financial settlements with women who complained about the editor, he continued in his position for years, sources said.

That's one of the findings in a weeks-long investigation conducted by Business Insider into the company's culture. The investigation involved interviews with more than 40 current and former Bloomberg LP employees and found allegations of a toxic, macho workplace culture fueled by fear, in which powerful people screamed at underlings and bullied them with impunity. When they reported claims of inappropriate behavior to human resources, these staffers said, they were routinely ignored.

In the course of Business Insider's investigation, few names came up more frequently in conversations with former employees than Hunt's.

And the more I think about Obama’s CIA Director John O Brennan voted for Gus Hall, well at least we know who they are.

re: BillT@9:04PM

IMO.

The funny thing about the ultra-left Bernies of the world is that they honestly believed that their political belief systems bought them camaraderie with folks like the Soviets. It's hard to get more nationalistic than Russians and po' old Bernie would be the first guy on the gallows in a USSSR.

Re: [5mar20 update] Former educator and now Union liberal columnist Terry McAteer has discovered California’s economic “doughnut hole” in its Central Valley, a region un- and under-represented in Sacramento.

I noticed McAteer did not fail to praise ‘good’ local foothill schools along with good schools in the Coastal belt...yet left the Sanctuary City by the Bay (Poop City) and LA out of his ‘doughnut hole.”
The Central Valley may be a hole, but the real cesspools of liberal thought are not found there.
