    A married NBC staffer claimed she woke up in Matt Lauer’s office with her pants halfway down her legs after having sex with the anchor until she passed out. The woman told The New York Times that the longtime Today Show host’s assistant had to take her to see a nurse after the alleged encounter in 2001.
    The former employee, who was in her 40s at the time, said Lauer first made advances towards her while covering a story away from their New York headquarters in the late 1990s. She described moving away from him during a car journey to the airport because he was sitting ‘uncomfortably close’, to which he apparently replied: ‘You’re no fun’.
    Then, in 2001, she claims the married Lauer summoned her to his office at 30 Rock in New York to discuss work. She says he then used a button under his desk to lock the door and then told her to unbutton her blouse. She said the veteran broadcaster then stepped out from behind his desk, pulled out a chair, bent her over, and started having sex with her until she fell unconscious.
    The woman told The Times she woke up a while later on the floor of his office with her pants halfway down her legs, prompting his assistant to take her to seek medical attention.


    [From The Daily Mail]

    This victim says that she “felt helpless because she didn’t want to lose her job” and she didn’t report it to management because she thought/knew nothing would come of it because of Lauer’s status at NBC. You can read her full account here in the New York Times.

    "bent her over, and started having sex with her until she fell unconscious."
    Or, as we say in English: RAPE.
    As Canadian as possible under the circumstances

    And there we have it. NBC's excuse of 'this was the first time someone went to HR' on display. This is why.

    When I was harassed/hit on while at Ford, that's why I never went to anyone. I would now be the person with the reputation to defend, I might lose my position especially if the allegations weren't investigated or if "authorities" asked this guy if he had said what he said/done what he had done and he denied it. Now, it's my word against the VP of the company's ad agency and who ya gonna believe? Probably not me.

    I have since completed this with the person I SHOULD have told. Men do not understand the position we were in then (90's, sexual harassment policy had been implemented but at that time, it was more or less loosely suggested that it be followed), and how tenuous and uncertain we had to play it. The person I told said, "why did you tell me about it? I could have done something." And I said, "yeah, but you would not have."

    He was fired for cause, not likely that he’ll get a buy out

    A buy out? He should have to pay back all his salary. He is a rapist. He should go to jail.

    That was my assumption too. Glad to hear you say that.

    NBC wants no trace of Lauer at 30 Rock. His office has not been remodeled, but destroyed.

    The Lauer stories must be legendary.

    ^^They can get rid of every trace of him, but they can hardly pretend he was never there.

    Has it been revealed yet what the actual incident that led to the firing was? All of this horrible stuff keeps coming out and I keep imagining the career-ending incident is even worse.

    I don't know. Didn't it say that it was something that happened at the last Winter Olympics?
