Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has continued her campaign to get former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg to release his former employees from the nondisclosure agreements they signed with an offer to write a contract for him.
“This is an election for president of the United States, and transparency here is important. So, I used to teach contract law. And I thought I would make this easy,” Warren said at a CNN town hall in Nevada on Thursday.
“I wrote up a release and covenant not to sue, and all that Mayor Bloomberg has to do is download it -- I'll text it -- sign it, and then the women, or men, will be free to speak and tell their own stories,” she continued.
The senator challenged Bloomberg during this week’s Democratic presidential debate to release the women who have made nondisclosure agreements, but the billionaire businessman declined.
“None of them accuse me of doing anything, other than maybe they didn’t like a joke I told,” Bloomberg said during the debate, prompting groans from the audience. “And let me just – and let me – there’s agreements between two parties that wanted to keep it quiet and that’s up to them. They signed those agreements, and we’ll live with it.”
Warren read the “relevant language” from the contract she drafted during the town hall.
"Bloomberg and the company release any and all obligations contained in any agreement, including but not limited to any employment, settlement, severance or nondisclosure agreement, between Bloomberg and/or the company and any other person, to the extent those obligations preclude the other person from disclosing information relating to sexual harassment, discrimination, or other misconduct at the company or by Bloomberg himself. Under this release, it is now the other person’s choice to disclose such information or not.”
She added, “I think that the mayor should sign this, and that we all have a right to see.”
