Nothing surprises me any more.
Gee said one of the most offensive incidents occurred in 2011 when she was talking with her boss at “CBS Evening News,” Robert Klug, about a workplace dispute.

Klug, now 58, said “she should ‘have sex’ with [the] video editor who had been difficult to work with to ‘break the ice,’” according to court papers.

Gee was demoted to a weekend shift after she filed the complaint, but Klug was eventually promoted. Gee said her experience is one of the reasons why women are hesitant to come forward and make charges of sexual harassment or discrimination.

“My situation demonstrates why woman are afraid to speak up,’’ Gee said. “When they do, they’re often punished for it.”
