NBC’s Tom Brokaw has become the latest media personality to be accused of sexually misconduct.
Former NBC war correspondent, Linda Vester, told The Washington Post that Brokaw made unwanted advances toward her in the 1990s.
One of those advances, she claims, was a forcible kiss. Vester, now 52, said she was 28 at the time of the alleged incidents.
Vester alleged that Brokaw, now 78, invited her for a drink when she was in New York on assignment in 1994.
She reportedly responded to him by saying that she only drinks milk and cookies.
‘It was the only thing I could think of at the time, hoping the reference to milk and cookies would make him realize I was 30 years his junior and not interested,’ she told the Post.
Vester claimed that Brokaw called her and told her that he was coming over because he was looking for ‘an affair of more than passing affection’.
She alleged that he tried to give her a ‘real kiss’ while sitting on the hotel room’s sofa.
