An additional 27 women have come forward to accuse veteran journalist Charlie Rose of sexual misconduct in the workplace, The Washington Post reports. The report follows Rose's firing from CBS News last year after eight women accused him of sexual harassment. It reveals that concerns about Rose's conduct were shared with managers multiple times over the years, as early as 1986 and as recently as spring 2017. The new allegations date back as far as 1976, when Rose allegedly inappropriately touched and exposed his penis to a former research assistant at NBC News, where they worked. "Management, numerous broadcasters, and studio staff ... failed and refused to take any remedial action," said an attorney representing three of the women. Rose said the report is "unfair and inaccurate."
