A legal expert has written a contract that Michael Bloomberg can sign to release former Bloomberg employees from nondisclosure agreements—and her name is Elizabeth Warren. The senator, who passed the bar examination in 1976 and has taught law at several universities, unveiled the contract at a CNN town hall in Nevada Thursday. "I used to teach contract law," said Warren, who pressed Bloomberg on the issue during Wednesday night's debate. "And I thought I would make this easy. I wrote up a release and covenant not to sue, and all that Mayor Bloomberg has to do is download it—I'll text it—sign it, and then the women, or men, will be free to speak and tell their own stories."

Warren also tweeted a copy of the document Thursday night, saying "Mike Bloomberg can easily release the women who have accused him of sexual harassment—and who voluntarily want to speak about their experiences—from their non-disclosure agreements," the Hill reports. During the debate, Bloomberg was booed after he said he wouldn't release women from the NDAs. "None of them accuse me of doing anything other than maybe they didn't like a joke I told," the former New York City mayor said. (More Elizabeth Warren 2020 stories.)
