New York - Amid Cries Of 'Rudeness' And 'Bullyism,' Female Staffers Leaving Brooklyn DA Thompson's Office In Droves
New York - Despite amassing a small fortune as a civil attorney representing women in sexual harassment cases, Brooklyn DA Kenneth Thompson’s treatment of women in his administration has come under fire, with 11 female staffers having already left amid charges of “rudeness” and “bullyism.”
NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1UyMhwf) is reporting that, according to sources, Thompson has a “problem” with “women who are self-assured,” and has routinely given less “leeway” to women staffers than their male counterparts.
According to one source, Thompson is prone to temper tantrums during his interactions with female staffers, often saying, “I’m the Brooklyn DA, as if you didn’t know who you were talking to.”
Asked to comment on the allegations, Thompson spokesman Oren Yaniv called the charges “a despicable smear that’s belied by the facts.”
