"Game Change" author and NBC News, MSNBC political analyst Mark Halperin is out at the network following sexual harassment allegations against him from five women.
An ABC News spokesman said Halperin left the division more than a decade ago and that "no complaints were filed during his tenure". Three of the women who spoke to CNN described Halperin as, without consent, pressing an erection against their bodies while he was clothed. They all have asked not to be named. None of the women have said, though, that he ever promised anything in exchange for sex, or suggested that he would retaliate against anyone. Multiple women even claimed Halperin, now a political analyst for NBC and MSNBC, rubbed his erect penis against them.
But Halperin released a statement to CNN Wednesday, saying, "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", Halperin said.
"This was an open secret when I was at ABC for years", CNN reporter Clarissa Ward tweeted.
The women say that they did not report Halperin's conduct as they were afraid of blowback due to his prominent position at the network.
