Tom Brokaw withdraws as commencement speaker after sexual harassment allegations

FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Former news anchor Tom Brokaw has withdrawn as a Connecticut university’s commencement speaker after facing allegations of sexual harassment, the school said. Sacred Heart University said Brokaw notified school officials of the cancellation Friday.

Linda Vester, who worked as a war correspondent for NBC News, told Variety and The Washington Post that Brokaw groped her and tried to forcibly kiss her in the 1990s.

The 78-year-old Brokaw, who has been married since 1962, has denied the allegations.

“I met with Linda Vester on two occasions, both at her request, 23 years ago because she wanted advice with respect to her career at NBC,” Brokaw said in a statement to the two outlets issued through NBC News. “The meetings were brief, cordial and appropriate, and despite Linda’s allegations, I made no romantic overtures towards her at that time or any other.”

Brokaw is now 78 years old, retired, trying to enjoy life and this LADY comes out of the sexual harassment closet after after 20 plus years accusing Brokaw of  kissing her.

Why did she wait so long before dropping the bomb shell?

I am not suggesting that Brokaw did or didn’t kiss Vester, I just think waiting 23 years to drop a dime is a little too lengthy.

I wonder what the statues of limitations are on kissing a person?? Interesting!!
