Yesterday, Perquita Burgess, one of the women who accused Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment, opened up about her experience as a temp worker at Fox News to the hosts of The View on Thursday morning.
She stated that O’Reilly’s harassment began about a week and a half into the job. “He always walked past my desk and he made like a grunting noise,” Burgess said, though she initially brushed it off as a muscle spasm. “As time went on, I noticed… if no one was around he would make that noise.”
Burgess recalled another instance that occurred in an elevator about three or four weeks later. “He let me off first, as gentlemen usually do,” she said, “and I walked in front of him and as I was leaving the elevator, he said, ‘Looking good there, girl.’” She described these moments as “embarrassing,” “mortifying,” and “street harassment in the office.”
