Three of Charlie Rose's former employees, this time from CBS, accused him of sexual harassment during his time at the network, just hours after he was fired from CBS' morning show.

Earlier allegations were made by eight women who worked, or aspired to work, on Rose's program at PBS. CBS, which reported the fresh round of allegations Wednesday, said they learned about the new cases "not from the HR department, but from our own investigation of his behavior."

The new allegations:

  • The three employees spoke anonymously. One woman said she wasn't ready for the details of her story to become public, and two others described "unwanted encounters with Rose at work-related events."
  • One said Rose groped her butt. The other said he "grabbed her inappropriately and whispered a sexual innuendo in her ear."
  • Former Charlie Rose Show producer Rebecca Carroll also told CBS that she witnessed some of the inappropriate behavior, but "there wasn't anybody to tell."

Rose's defense: Monday night, a TMZ cameraman asked Rose if he had anything to say to the accusers about these "wrongdoings." Rose replied, "It's not wrongdoings." His defiant response differs from his initial statement in which he said "I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed."

Go deeper: CBS and PBS have both dropped Rose from their networks. Bloomberg has also suspended Rose's show from airing on Bloomberg TV and radio.

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after last week's deadly Capitol riot. Correa did not shelter in the designated safe zone with his congressional colleagues during the siege, per a spokesperson, instead staying outside to help Capitol Police.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
