New harassment claims against 'Game Change' journalist

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- CNN is reporting that four more women are leveling allegations of sexual harassment against journalist Mark Halperin.

The news channel said Friday that one woman is claiming Halperin masturbated in front of her.

CNN said a second woman alleged that the "Game Change" co-author threw her against a restaurant window and threatened to derail her career after she rebuffed him.

The four women, who were not identified in the CNN report, said the encounters took place between the late 1980s and 2006, during which time Halperin worked at ABC News.

CNN said that Halperin denied that he masturbated in front of anyone or physically assaulted or threatened anyone.

He issued a lengthy apology on Twitter, apologizing for causing pain and anguish to the women he said he mistreated.
