Samantha Guthrie not happy with Matt Lauer

This is a very serious allegation against Matt Lauer. He is a creep (with that secret remote locking door he had at NBC) and he harassed a lot of women, but raping a co-worker like what is alleged here is very bad. Could he have done it? Absolutely--this is Matt Lauer we are talking about.

However, that Brooke Nevils kept having sex with for some time after the alleged rape is a problematic fact for her claims (and she supposedly initiated it at times). Nevils also claims those encounters with Lauer that continued back in New York were transactional. Having sex in exchange for something of value has another name too. Still, he was her boss.

It would be very difficult (if not impossible) to criminally convict Lauer of rape based on this (plus it happened in Russia), but a civil trial for sexual assault?  NBC did give her a seven figure settlement. Plus this sort of behavior helped get Lauer fired and got him divorced from his wife.

This is a teaching moment. "Don't shit where you eat" is the obvious one--do not have sexual affairs at work (married or not). The Pence Rule is probably also a good one to follow (if you are married, then either have your spouse or other people around when socializing after work).  

Rush Limbaugh: Matt Lauer accused of doing what Bill Clinton did   I did hear Rush talking about Ronan Farrow and Ronan's response about the allegation that Frank Sinatra was his father: “we’re all possibly Frank Sinatra’s son.” That made me laugh.
