NOW Goes After David Letterman Over Affairs With Female Staffers

Wednesday, October 07, 2009
By Catherine Donaldson-Evans

NEW YORK —
The National Organization for Women has put David Letterman in its crosshairs.

NOW issued a strongly worded statement Tuesday night saying the late-night host created a "toxic environment" for his female employees by having sex with several young staff members over the years.

Letterman admitted to having multiple affairs last week after a CBS News producer allegedly threatened to blackmail him.

NOW President Terry O'Neill blasted the late-night funnyman, saying the affairs were classic examples of sexual harassment in the workplace.

"As 'the boss,' he is responsible for setting the tone for his entire workplace — and he did that with sex," O'Neill said. "This places all employees — including employees who happen to be women — in an awkward, confusing and demoralizing situation."

A powerful man with a public forum like Letterman, O'Neill said, can get away with turning women into sex objects because "he can crack a few jokes and publicly apologize for his mistakes."

"It is this kind of hypocrisy that perpetuates the image of men in power preying on women, while many look the other way," O'Neill said.

NOW urged CBS to take immediate action against Letterman for his lewd behavior — but so far, it has stopped short of calling on the network to drop his show.

"The National Organization for Women calls on CBS ... to take action immediately to rectify this situation," O'Neill said.

I hope Dave gets what he deserves. No more, no less.

You know, by all accounts these affairs with staffers were fairly long term things. I don't think that exactly falls into the "treats women as sex objects" category.

Letterman's Former Hookup Banned from CBS Set

Posted Oct 7th 2009 4:43PM by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned Stephanie Birkitt -- the woman at the center of the David Letterman sex scandal -- has been banned from setting foot on the CBS set where the "Late Show" is filmed.



Birkitt used to be David's assistant -- appearing on the "Late Show" numerous times -- and later became his personal attorney. It was Birkitt's ex-boyfriend -- Robert Halderman -- who discovered Letterman's secret relationship with her ... and then allegedly threatened to release the scandalous information unless Letterman forked over $2 million.

Sources tell TMZ that security at CBS is well aware of Birkitt's ban from the set.

Worldwide Pants just issued the following statement: "Stephanie is on paid leave of absence ... she has not been banned from the Ed Sullivan Theatre."

But TMZ just spoke with someone associated with security at Letterman who just told us, "Security got a verbal order that she is 'banned' from the property for the time being."
According to her diary, the affair with Birkitt began Dec 2007, when she was living with Halderman. I am sure Dave's relationship with the mother of his child was in full swing, didn't they get married in 2008?

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

I'm just reminding myself that sexual harassment could be involved here, since there's such a dearth of that heretofore.

Give it a rest, deep. Nobody cares, and whatever you're trying to convince us of, it ain't happening.

If I want to read more about it I know how to access the TMZ website.

Even on Jezebel, one of the most pseudo-feminist sites around, the general consensus seems to be "much ado about nothing."

The one thing that's for sure is that Dave's wife must be going through absolute Hell right now. My guess says she knew about Dave's other women, but now everyone else knows too. Doubly sucking. Then, of course, there's Dave's son. Who knows what the kid knows? I know he's only 5 or something, but kids definitely sense tension between their parents. Plus, if the kid's got 2 eyes, Dave's all over the TV, newspapers and the internet and he's gotta know something's up.

This latest stuff with Birkett being "banned" from the Ed Sullivan Theatre has been spun by CBS that she's on a "paid leave of absence".

I think the worst is yet to come.

Yes-that's who he has to answer to. I don't know if she knew about the making out in the driveway/private street where Halderman was still living with her just this past August, if that's true. Tripley sucking. I don't know how much she knew about the previous-to-that activities-based upon his statement about things being cold and having so much work to do (unless that was more about Aug). If you make that commitment of marriage after 20 plus years, well why not honor it? Maybe he has and that stuff is untrue and made up by Halderman in order to give himself the motive of jealous, angry that she's still doing this w/Letterman rage and all that, could be possible.
