"Huge Bag Of Sex Toys": At Least 8 Women Now Accuse Lauer Of Harassment

It’s been just over a day since a shaken Savannah Guthrie informed Today Show viewers that her former co-host Matt Lauer had been fired due to allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior - the latest, and one of the highest-profile casualties in the widening national reckoning with sexual harassment in the workplace. And now, NBC’s top brass, which said they fired Lauer after an employee filed a complaint about inappropriate behavior that reportedly began during NBC’s coverage in Sochi (and who claim they were blissfully unaware of what was going on) are saying that the number of women accusing Lauer of harassment has risen to eight.

According to Fox, NBC’s Stephanie Gosk revealed to Megyn Kelly during the 9 am  hour of “Today” that there could be up to eight accusers, as details surfaced about the star's alleged lewd behavior and old video clips back in circulation raised eyebrows.

There was also this 2012 clip where the former Today co-host Katie Couric told Andy Cohen that Lauer’s most annoying habit was his fondness for pinching her ass.

Somewhat humorously, NBC said it has reached out to area police departments, and the network can "safely report" that there are no open criminal investigations involving Lauer at this time.

“We have reached out to New York City police; we have reached out to police departments in Long Island. We know of no open criminal investigation against Matt Lauer,” Gosk said.

That could change.

One of the most disturbing stories about Lauer’s conduct emerged yesterday when a former NBC employee told the New York Times about a  2001 incident where Lauer called her into his office, asked her to unbutton her blouse, then bent her over his desk and violated her. During the middle of the act, she apparently passed out. He then had one of his assistants take her to a nurse.

The former NBC employee told the Times that Lauer sexually assaulted her, but that she didn’t report it for fear of losing her job.

Another woman told Variety that Lauer had gifted her a sex toy with a graphic description, while another said he exposed himself to her in his office, which reportedly had a door that locked via a button under his desk. A video also surfaced of Lauer telling Meredith Vieira to "keep bending over like that" back in 2006.

In another cringeworthy moment, Meredith Vieira brought up a "huge bag of sex toys" she once found in Matt Lauer's office when Lauer and fellow Today host Savannah Guthrie were guests on Vieira’s talk show. To be sure, Matt was "quick on his feet", and blamed a sex therapist who had appeared on "Today", although his co-hosts don't seem to recall that particular encounter.  In light of the latest developments, this anecdote takes on a whole different meaning.

Lauer broke his silence on Thursday morning, and issued a public apology admitting that “there is enough truth to these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed."

In an interesting twist to the familiar sexual-harasser script, the New York Times is reporting that the reverberations from Lauer’s firing have made it all the way to New Zealand.

A New Zealand government agency said on Thursday that it was in discussions with Lauer’s representative over his purchase of a 16,000-acre farm there. Foreigners must pass a good-character test to be allowed to buy New Zealand land, and while Lauer’s purchase was approved earlier this year, the country’s Overseas Investment Office is revisiting his case in light of his firing.

Officials from that agency “are seeking further information,” said Lisa Barrett, a spokeswoman for the agency. The agency can require buyers to dispose of the property if it believes the rules have been violated.

We expect more disturbing stories of Lauer’s workplace conduct will emerge in the near future.

Respectfully, Matt may be in more trouble than it looks. If his wife has a good lawyer, she'll take him to the cleaners financially. Then NBC, faced with massive lawsuits from multiple women who can prove the company enabled his rape room (by providing him with the handyman to install the desk-button door lock) will probably turn on him even more. No major media outlet worth a bag of rocks will ever touch this guy again. He then may get hit with civil suits if this woman - and more - come out with rape stories like the one that just dropped. Yesterday, another NBC executive  (female, can't remember who) said these desk-locks for the office doors were in a bunch of other Executives' offices. Wonder who they are?

The current crop at NBC claim they didn't know, I don't believe that but, why does that matter? NBC is going to get raped for colluding with this prick, and they know it. That's why so many are dropping like fly's.  Everyone from the cops, to prosecutors, to corporations, where coddling these elite psychos, turning a blind eye, and it's all going to back fire on them.How about we have a real investigation into Collusion, nation wide,   Collusion with Rapists, Pedophiles, and Murders!

Matt is dumber than a bag of Dicks.

On another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. After the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.”

Summoned & reprimanded.

One day this guy comes to work at a sex toy shop. His boss leaves for the day and puts him in charge of the shop. About an hour later a black haired lady comes in and asks "How much for your black dildos?" The guy says "30 bucks" "And how much for your white dildos?" asks the lady. Again the man says "30 bucks for the black and 30 bucks for the white" So she takes the black one and leaves. A while later a brunette comes in to the store and asks "How much for your white dildos?" The man responds "30 bucks" She asks "And how much for your black dildos?" "30 bucks for the white and 30 bucks for the black" replies the man. So she takes the white one leaves. About an hour later a blonde walks through the door and asks "How much are your dildos?" The guys says "All our dildos are 30 bucks" Then she looks up behind the man on a shelf and ask "How much for that green one?" The man responds "Oh, that one is special. That will cost you $250" The blonde agrees and takes it. Later that day the boss come back and asks "So what did you sell today?" The man says "I sold a black dildo, a white dildo , and a 2-liter of mountain dew for $250!"

At least 8 women too delicate and immuture to be on their own without a male chaperone, totally incapable of defending themselves againsy one puny runt. Women don't want equality by achieving male performance levels, they want men to emasculate men, using the police and courts, to bring men down to the level of 14 year old girls.

I guess he needs more spiritual centering and reflection, than previously thought.Me, I think a few rounds of MK-Ultra treatment can set him to rights.

Worked for a boutique i-bank in the 80s . . . about a dozen of us in a trading room.  One of the guys says to the boss' assistant: Sara, what happened to your arms?  Everyone looks up . . . her forearms were chaffed a bit raw . . . she blushed crimson and rolled her sleeves down. The boss was not a nice guy.  his marriage didn't last, his company didn't last, his life didn't last.  Sara ended up with his house.

No.    Remember, "we" elected Bill Clinton after his philandering was a matter of public record.  That sent the "ok" message to all the power/sex freaks out there in management, and they've been buggering like bunnies ever since.   There is a lot of pent up anger from the diddled, and who can blame them.  There are probably thousands of mid-management jerks like this who have gotten away with it all these years, and now they are sweating bullets -- and the gals who felt like nobody would ever listen are feeling empowered to slap a back-atcha at them.    It will go on for quite awhile.Meanwhile, the "drain the swamp" exercise is ramping up with this -- they are getting the progressive left used to the idea that all their idols are really hypocrites and sleazebags....so when the hammer comes down on the big-time politicos that they worship, they won't immediately riot, but they'll just get really depressed and stuff themselves in the incinerator instead.

First they came for the M80s and cherry bombs, and nobody said anything. Then they came for the BB guns, and nobody said anything. Then they came for GI Joe, and nobody said anything. Then they came for the pocket knives, squirt guns, cap pistols, caps, darts, lawn darts, snaps, boomerangs, kites, frisbees, yoyos, fireballs, jawbreakers, bubble yum, pez, reeses, snickers, ding dongs, yoddles, cupcakes, devil dogs, peanut brittle, snowballs and twinkies, licorice, taffy and The Ice Cream Man, The Great Pumpkin, the Easter Bunny and Saint Nick and nobody said anything. They took away the fish hooks. They took away the glue. They took away the string. They took away the plastic bags. They took the fucking bar, maaann! Nobody wants to live here anymore. Then they served up illicit psychoactive drugs to children everywhere. They started teaching fake science to legitimize their preference for men raping, pillaging, plundering and abandoning women and children to make it on their own, instead of the legitimate christian social system in which women are entrusted by God with the most important duty, which is to reproduce and raise healthy children, and men are dedicated and devoted to their own families. Now they are forcefully drugging children, holding them down to shoot chemicals and viruses and shit into them. Now they are teaching children that perversion is the norm. Now they are prescribing birth controls to young girls. Now they are telling children not to tell their parents what's going on in these institutions. Now they are estimating Suicide rates are going up 45% or more over the next decade.When are you going to stand your ground? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nCj4d2NPKQ
