REPORT: Michael Bloomberg Said “Kill It” To Female Employee When She Announced She Was Pregnant

If Michael Bloomberg is really going to run for president, he is going to have to answer some questions.

According to a lawsuit from 1997, Bloomberg said some stunningly awful things to his employees.

‘Kill It’: That Was Bloomberg’s Alleged Response When an Employee Told Him She Was Pregnant

Former New York City Mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg allegedly told a female employee to “kill it” when she revealed she was pregnant. The allegation was made in a 1997 lawsuit filed in New York by Sekiko Sakai Garrison, one of Bloomberg’s former executives, National Review reported.

Bloomberg was reportedly upset that another pregnant woman would be added to his payroll. “Great! Number 16,” he said, an apparent reference to the number of pregnancies among his staff at Bloomberg LP.

In addition to these two accusations surrounding her pregnancy, the lawsuit also said Bloomberg pointed another woman out to Garrison and said, “If you looked like that, I would do you in a second.”

The lawsuit also detailed allegations of racism. He allegedly referred to Mexican clients as “jumping beans” and told a female employee having issues finding a babysitter that “all you need is some black who doesn’t even have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building,” the Telegraph reported back in 2007.

National Review has more:

”Sexual harassment and sexual degredation of women at Bloomberg was pervasive,” the lawsuit states.

Sakai Garrison, who now lives in Seattle, achieved the number one ranking as regional sales manager at Bloomberg’s company, where she worked from 1989 to 1995, when she was let go. She did not respond to a request for comment.

The suit accused Bloomberg of making racist remarks as well, including calling Mexican clients “jumping beans” and telling a female employee who needed a nanny, “all you need is some black who doesn’t even have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building.”

That sounds pretty bad.

Will other candidates attack him over this?
