It is also illegal for a boss to grope his employee under a table.
Miller has not given any further details about the incident between herself and Halperin.
Hours after five anonymous women accused journalist and author Mark Halperin of sexual harassment and/or assault during his time at ABC News a sixth woman is publicly speaking out.
Emily Miller, a correspondent for One America News Network who served as Deputy Press Secretary at the US State Department under former secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condelezza Rice revealed that she too was a victim of Halperin's alleged harassment while working at ABC News as an associate producer.
Halperin says he pursued relationships, sometimes with junior co-workers, but denied any allegations of groping or unwanted touching.
One person who was not sad to see Halperin's downfall meanwhile was the subject of his book 'Game Change,' Sarah Palin.'Finally. Mark Halperin is one of the most unethical and dishonest men in America, as proven by the sick movie character he invented about me in attempts to destroy my reputation and record,' said Palin in a statement.'It was pathetic watching all the liberal and even 'friends' in conservative news outlets cover his fake movie Game Change so enthusiastically, with such perversion.' She went on to say: 'This is evidence of the dark, disgusting nature that has heretofore ruled our media and political culture. Personally, this is part of the vindication I've prayed for – that hateful, lying critics would be revealed for who they really are.
At the same time, HBO has announced that they will no longer be working with Halperin on their previously announced 'Game Change' series about the 2016 election, which was set to serve as a follow-up to the HBO film based off his book of the same name.
And that is just what he did when the three went to eat later that night according to Harth in her deposition.'Basically he name-dropped throughout that dinner, when he wasn't groping me under the table,' testified Harth.
'Let me just say, this was a very traumatic thing working for him.'Halperin, after reading these textbook allegations of sexual harassment and assault, said: 'There's some troubling things in the piece, but there's nothing illegal, there's nothing even kind of like beyond boorish or politically incorrect, which is built into the Donald Trump brand.'It is illegal for a boss to make sexual overtures towards an employee.
Halperin is the son of Morton Halperin, a foreign policy expert, and Ina Young. After making an inappropriate on-air comment about President Barack Obama, he was temporarily banned from providing his political views on the MSNBC network.
The new accusations from the four women include that Halperin masturbated in front of an ABC News employee in his office and that he violently threw another woman against a restaurant window before attempting to kiss her, and that after she rebuffed him he called her and told her she would never work in politics or media.
