KPIX: Aide to Sen. Kamala Harris Resigns Following Sexual Harassment Settlement
CBS San Francisco Bay Area affiliate KPIX featured an interview with Equal Rights Advocates Executive Director Noreen Farrell in an aired news segment about a former aide to Senator Kamala Harris, Larry Wallace, who resigned this week after news surfaced of a sexual harassment settlement in a complaint filed when he was working for then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris.
Noreen speaks about factors that enable high-level officials to get away with sexual harassment, including confidentiality clauses in settlement agreement, which often prevent the victim from talking about the case.
“Their sexual harassment is overlooked, there’s a quick, quiet settlement, and then they’re allowed to stay in the workplace,” she said.
