WWE Sex Harassment Exec Appears to Have Been Terminated
May 10, 2010

According to a World Wrestling Entertainment source, the executive vice president and general counsel of Connecticut Senate candidate Linda McMahon’s “former” company was suspended for sexual harassment for an incident at WrestleMania in Arizona in late March.

My source said that Jared Bartie, who was described as having been drinking, hit inappropriately on a female accuser who was an executive in the WWE sales department. I do not know the length of Bartie’s suspension, or when it was to have begun or ended.

The woman herself got fired a few weeks later, in late April, after being seen performing a sex act on yet another subordinate male employee, on the work premises during business hours, according to the same source.

WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman did not respond to an emailed request for comment.
