Bloomberg may face 2020 obstacle in past harassment, discrimination claims

New Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg may run into criticism from his opponents not only about his status as a billionaire but over a number of lawsuits claiming harassment and discrimination at the media conglomerate he founded.

The work environment at Bloomberg LP has been the subject of multiple complaints since the firm’s inception in 1981, according to legal filings. The suits were also reported in depth by Business Insider.

The complaints named both the former New York City mayor and his company, potentially providing fodder to opponents such as Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who have accused the 77-year-old — with a fortune of $54 billion, per Forbes — of trying to buy the 2020 presidential election.

Anticipating scrutiny of his past, the billionaire apologized again Tuesday for a controversial “stop and frisk” policy, intended to curb violent crime, while he was the mayor of New York City. Critics blasted the practice as discriminatory, complaining that officers targeted black and Latino men in lower-income communities and searched them for illegal weapons.
