Warren Moon requests leave of absence from Seahawks radio broadcast

08 December, 2017, 01:50 | Author: Christina Hansen
  • A California woman is reportedly suing Warren Moon for sexual harassment. More

The Hall of Fame quarterback has been working as a color commentator for the Seahawks radio network, but has requested a leave of absence.

Per the Washington post, the plaintiff, who was hired in July as Moon's executive assistant, alleges she was demoted in October after complaining about Moon's sexual advances. "Mr. Moon contends these claims are meritless, and he has every intention to vigorously defend himself in court".

Among the many allegations made in the claim are that she was made to sleep in the same bed as him on business trips and that on one occasion, Moon grabbed her crotch while she was sleeping. The suit further accuses Moon of pulling off the woman's bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink during a separate trip to Mexico in October.

Then on Wednesday, Politico reported a former Democratic congressional aide said Franken tried to kiss her forcibly in 2006. Franken repeatedly emphasized his respect for women. "I would do it all over again in a heartbeat", he said.

Additionally, Haskell alleges Moon once ripped her clothes off despite her objections.

Whitlock's piece also notes that Moon has been in trouble with the law before, including a sexual harassment lawsuit from a Vikings' cheerleader alleging he offered to pay her for sex in 1995 (settled out of court), a later 1995 arrest and assault charges after his then-wife said he slapped and choked her (he was acquitted after she testified she provoked the fight; they later divorced in 2001), and a 2007 drunk driving charge (reduced to negligent driving, led to community service).

Global News called Sports 1 Marketing twice for comment on Wednesday but on both occasions were told nobody was available to speak.

Mr Cummings said the source was "authentic, credible, and reliable", and offered to introduce the individual to Mr Gowdy. ACU Strategic Partners has declined comment or make Mr Copson available for an interview.

"I think she was scared", Fitzgerald told the newspaper. "She had no idea that her job duties were going to involve that kind of perverse protocol". He was the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year in 1989, but has since been involved in multiple scandals related to women. Moon, who spent 17 years in the National Football League after winning five Grey Cups in a six-year CFL stint, has denied the allegations. He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006. He went undrafted by the NFL and led Edmonton to five Canadian Football League titles.

Moon was accused of striking his then wife, Felicia Moon, on the head with an open hand and choking her to the point that she nearly lost consciousness before she escaped from the couple's home in July 1995. "Brock Huard and Dave Wyman will assume the role of radio analyst indefinitely".
