A Matt Lauer accuser says she agreed to have a bunch of sex with him even though she knew he was married.
A recent Matt Lauer accuser gives lots of testimony that the man was an unfaithful pig—and that she had no moral standards at all. She admits that it was all consensual. As far as I can see from the Daily Mail story she doesn’t claim he threatened her career. She knew Lauer was married but that didn’t stop her.
Yet she calls herself a victim. She was his victim just as she was a victim of her self-degrading foolishness. Lauer’s wife was more victimized by her behavior than she was victimized by Lauer’s behavior.
Text exchanges show that Lauer then told Zinone to head to an empty dressing room above Studio 1A so the two could have sex before he left at 3pm.
Lauer sent that text at 2.42pm, just two years into his marriage with second wife Annette.
‘The situation really took its toll on me. I changed physically. I changed emotionally. Fear crept into my life. I became unsure of myself. Any confidence I had was gone. For him, it was a conquest,’ writes Zinone, who also detailed one encounter that occurred in Lauer’s office.
‘I sat across from him, and he pushes a button from his desk and the door shuts. It was embarrassing, because his secretary was sitting outside. He wanted to do stuff. I was like, “No. I’m so in over my head. I’m not a performance artist.”‘[…]
She says it was the ‘power dynamic’ between herself and Lauer that ultimately made her feel like a victim.
Note, the video implies she didn’t have a last sexual encounter in a bathroom at the DNC, but the essay she wrote in Variety makes it clear she did.
