Bloomberg Deposed in Discrimination Suit
New Yorkers of a certain vintage may remember Mark Green's last-ditch-and-desperate ad to derail Mike Bloomberg's 2001 mayoral campaign, in which the future mayor was portrayed as telling a pregnant staffer at his company to kill her baby. We haven't thought much about it since, but that allegation came out of discrimination accusations that have coalesced into a lawsuit against Bloomberg L.C., in which company managers are accused of hassling female employees with statements like "I'm not having any pregnant bitches working for me." Bloomberg himself, though not a defendant, has been deposed and is talking to the judge this morning. The Mayor has been testy about the case, telling a reporter who asked about it, "You'll have to ask the company, and next time don't bother to ask us a question."
