It is all over the weekend news, HP CEO Mark Hurd resigned from his post in one of the biggest multinational tech companies in the world and for what reason? Sexual Harassment! Well, that was the initial report people read but after further investigation it seems that those accusations were baseless.

Now, the woman “behind the iron mask” unveiled herself in public – contrary to the silent treatment made by her legal counsel to the press people and kept her mouth shut to disclose the complainant’s identity. The lady – or should we say actress – was none other than Jodie Fisher. You might be thinking, “Who the heck is Jodie Fisher”? Some folks even thought of “Jodie Foster” as the complainant but when the water became clearer, the not-so-famous name of this actress surfaced.

According to reports, Ms. Jodie Fisher revealed to the public that she and Mr. Hurd did not engage in any sexual acts nor had any sexual relationship – which is consistent with the earlier findings. The 50-year old actress and businesswoman knew Hurd via her contract jobs in HP. She get paid for $5,000 per event to greet people and make introductions among executives. Ms Fisher described her relationship with the former CEO as:

I first met Mark in 2007 when I interviewed for a contractor job at the company. At HP, I was under contract to work at high-level customer and executive summit events held around the country and abroad. I prepared for those events, worked very hard and enjoyed working for HP. I have resolved my claim with Mark privately, without litigation, and I do not intend to comment on it further.

Now, Is this girl a whack job or something? Why would she file a sexual harassment complaint if she and Mr. Hurd did not have any sexual contact in the first place?

In the end, Mr. Hurd walked away with over $40 million as a severance pay for his years of service with HP. The investigative committee found out that the former CEO was instead guilty of “falsifying documents” and not of any uncouth acts. On the other hand, news and blogs have its focus on the dumb blonde Jodie Fisher. Try checking her resume at IMDB and see her great collection of movies.

    Two years ago Mark "Turd" cut employee pay and benefits and I lost my health insurance. Same sex domestic partners still receive benefits (as I understand it ) but opposite sex partners do not!!!!! Nobody sues because they are afraid to lose their jobs. I don't feel sorry for this guy in the least!! I also hope his wife rakes him over the coals!!!
    Merry Christmas to me ! ;-)

    Olivia Orange.

    Take a glass of juice and cheer yourself up.
    Mark doesn't know of your existance and surely doesn't resent you. So mind your own bussiness.
    Whether his wife rakes him or not, he neither have to worry about health insurance nor a paycheck, for as long he shall live.

    So cheer up and just be happy. Happy people don't need health insurance as much.

    most people who file sexual harassment claims want the person bothering them to stop, to settle for a sum of money seems strange, especially since no admission of guilt is there, the financial statements were incorrect, what was mr hurd's overall purpose in being with this lady if she didn't want to be with him

  7. GrooverMcTuber says:

    Buh-Bye Mark. We won't miss you. There is a LOT more to this story than has been revealed thus far. HP can layoff more employees and cut remaining employees pay to pay for his golden parachute. What a load of crap.

  8. John says:

    Maybe the sexual harassment was that he was encouraging her to do sexual favors to certain guests at these events.

    In other words, he was trying to pimp her out (in the traditional meaning of the word pimp.)

    Screwed. Just like Bill Clinton
