KPIX: Aide to Sen. Kamala Harris Resigns Following Sexual Harassment Settlement

December 6, 2018 | by

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.
