     A female employee of NBC met with the company's human resources and legal departments regarding her account of sexual harassment, which was allegedly perpetrated by Matt Lauer. The broadcast television network didn't take long to make a decision, only needing a day to investigate her claims and send the "Today" show host packing. 

     Variety had apparently spoken to 10 current and past employees of NBC that accused Lauer of misconduct, which ranged in location and manner. The woman who spoke with NBC on Monday claims she was sexually assaulted by Lauer in 2014 while on assignment at the Sochi Olympics. Others apparently stated that the host would constantly invite women employed by NBC to his hotel room late at night while covering the games in a number of cities, over a number of years. 

     Another woman said she was "mortified" after receiving a sex toy from Lauer, which was accompanied by a note detailing how the host would like to use it on her. Another woman was "visibly shaken" after Lauer exposed himself in his office, a room that apparently gave him the ability to lock the door by using an installed device underneath the desk. I know what you're thinking, who (unless you're James Bond) needs this at a corporate office? Well apparently Matt Lauer desperately needed his privacy. The high tech office was even secluded away from foot traffic, most likely for the convenient added isolation. 

     The entertainment magazine Variety really went into detail in this story, even delving into the conversations Lauer would have with females and other coworkers. The popular host would ask women who they had slept with, and then would offer up his own list of names. He'd include men in this next one, outwardly testing employees of both genders with the classy game "f***, marry, kill."

     Although this is the first reported complaint against Lauer in his vast 20 plus years, it was disclosed that information was presented to NBC News Chairman Andy Lack to suggest "that this may not have been an isolated incident." It should be mentioned that several women stated that they had complained about the "Today" host to executives in the past, only for the grievances to basically be ignored. Luckily we are entering a time that allows victims of sexual misconduct to be heard and not be punished. 

     A former producer who talked to Variety was able to give some insight into why Lauer seemingly kept his sexual focus on fellow employees. 

“There were a lot of consensual relationships, but that’s still a problem because of the power he held. He couldn't sleep around town with celebrities or on the road with random people, because he’s Matt Lauer and he’s married. So he’d have to do it within his stable, where he exerted power, and he knew people wouldn't ever complain.” - former NBC producer speaking to Variety

     Now we just count down the days until Matt Lauer joins Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey down in the fancy Arizona rehab. (Over/under is set at one week)
