Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg said on Friday he would release three female former employees from nondisclosure agreements. In a tweet, he said Bloomberg LP had identified three agreements over 30 years that had been made with women "to address complaints about comments they said I made." The former New York mayor said if any of the women wanted to be released from the agreements, they would be after contacting the company. During Wednesday night's Democratic debate, Bloomberg rival Elizabeth Warren prodded him to release former employees from NDAs on live TV. ABC News has reported on lawsuits alleging Bloomberg had created a hostile work environment at his company with sexist comments, and former employees told the network they couldn't speak publicly due to confidentiality agreements.
