Cos you're a typical Canadian misogynist.

Hey, I never knew that sexual harassment was forbidden in the workplace until I read that post, how educational.

I believe Dave's stoopings were 'consensual'.

That still does not prevent him from being a 'target" for a sexual harassment suit.

go to the link I posted

I know someone that practices law in that field

the lawsuits are very prevalent.

I'm just saying we shouldn't suddenly decide Letterman's an dirtbag because he had an affair, regardless of whether or not it was with someone who worked for him. If you applied that standard to everyone there wouldn't be a lot of people left to think so highly of.

David Letterman Scandal: Who Is Stephanie Birkitt? | Access Hollywood - Celebrity News, Photos & Videos

Letterman Paid Assistant’s Law School Bill


By Richard Rushfield on October 3, 2009 at 12:52 AM

As revealed last night, Late Night host David Letterman could be an especially good boss to some of his more special assistants. The show’s staff has long buzzed upon the attentions Dave bestows upon his favourites. Some details we’ve learned:

• Letterman had a cadre of female assistants who fell heavily on the young and attractive side of the ledger. He was said to employ as not less than three of these Special Assistants to the Host last year. The assistant tally however, was said to have climbed as high as five at moments.

• The current assistant-in-question, Stephanie Birkitt, was widely rumoured among the staff to have received extra compensation for duties as his First Assistant, in the form of Letterman picking up the tab for her graduate law studies at the Yeshiva University Law School.

• Birkitt’s duties included nannying work around the office. She could often be seen playing with his son and chasing him through the office halls.

• Birkitt also frequently appeared on air, playing the part of Dave’s assistant in sketches and often delivering prizes to audience members in constants. Dave favoured Birkitt with playful nicknames in these moments such as “Vicky” “Kitty” and “Dutch.”

• Each Valentines Day, Letterman sent lavish, expensive bouquets of flowers to each and every non-male on the Late Show staff with a handwritten note signed “Your Friend Dave.”

• Eyebrows were raised around the office by Letterman’s long-delayed marriage to the mother of his now five year old son, whom had has been dating since 1986 and to whom he tied the knot only this year.

Yes being unfaithful to his longtime partner(now wife) was wrong. But being blackmailed and forced to admit it to the world is worse.

If you notice, he kept saying that he was being accused of doing "creepy things", which got the laughs. When he finally stated that he had had sex with women that work on the show, the crowd fell silent, with the exception of one person's groan. Immediately afterward he said something like, "I know what you're thinking, 'Darn it, Dave had sex!'" which also got the crowd laughing again.

I know that he made some jokes but he was trying to be serious at some parts and people were laughing.

And listen people make mistakes. Noone is perfect. I swear some people act all high and mighty like they've never made bad decisions in their life.

Its probably just that people in the studio are conditioned to laugh and not expect too much serious business. I'm sure in any other situation, they'd act differently. I can see where you're coming from though
