Fortune Magazine reports:
Six more women are accusing CBS chairman and CEO Les Moonves of sexual assault and harassment, according to a New Yorker investigation published Sunday—a month after a previous report by the publication outlined accusations of harassment, intimidation, and abuse by another group of six women.
Dozens of other complaints detailed widespread sexual misconduct at the company. According to the women who first came forward, the abuse dates back to at least the 1980s, including forcible touching and kissing during business dealings, as well as physical intimidation and threats.
6 women raise new, more serious claims of sexual assault or harassment against Les Moonves and say the CBS board failed to hold him to account. Some board members were aware of an LAPD investigation into one claim of violent, forced oral sex since January: https://t.co/4JgM7OV6cw
