BREAKING: Morning Joe / ABC Reporter Accused of Sexual Harassment by 5 Women


Mark Halperin, a reporter known for his frequent appearances on Morning Joe who also formerly worked for ABC is being accused of sexual harassment by 5 women.
From Axios
Five women accuse veteran journalist Mark Halperin of sexual harassment during his time as political director of ABC News in the early 2000s, per a CNN report. All five shared their stories anonymously given Halperin’s continued power in political journalism. ABC News told CNN that no complaints were filed during Halperin’s tenure with the network. NBC News, where he is currently employed as an analyst, declined to comment.
The accusations: Some of the women described situations in which Halperin groped them or pressed his clothed genitals against their bodies, which he denied to CNN. Others claimed that Halperin, the co-author of “Game Change,” propositioned them for sex while on the road for ABC News.
Halperin’s statement to CNN:
“During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me. I now understand from these accounts that my behavior was inappropriate and caused others pain. For that, I am deeply sorry and I apologize. Under the circumstances, I’m going to take a step back from my day-to-day work while I properly deal with this situation.”
