The accusations just keep coming for former CBS star Charlie Rose. Three former colleagues have filed a suit in New York State Supreme Court accusing Rose of "blatant and repeated sexual harassment" against the junior female employees, per USA Today. The suit comes on the heels of a Washington Post report that 27 women at CBS and elsewhere have said that Rose sexually harassed them, as far back as 1986. In the suit, Yuqing Wei said Rose insisted on kissing her and two other subordinates. Former CBS This Morning employee Katherine Brooks and executive assistant Sydney McNeal said in the suit that Rose repeatedly touched them, including "caressing and touching their arms, shoulders, waist and back, pulling them close to his body, and kissing them on the cheek."
