PRESS CONFERENCE: National Organization for Women (NOW), California Democratic Party Women’s Caucus, Gloria Allred, Feminist Majority and California NOW Call on MGM and Mark Burnett to Release Apprentice Footage

October 11, 2016
 Women’s Groups to Hold Press Conference and Present Letter to MGM Leadership

LOS ANGELES— Days after the lewd 2005 recording surfaced of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump boasting about using his power to sexually assault women, NOW, Feminist Majority, the California Democratic Party’s Women’s Caucus and California NOW will be hosting a press conference to call for MGM and Mark Burnett to release footage from the Apprentice television show.

Releasing the tapes is a civic duty.  Trump has made a campaign issue of his attitudes about women, African Americans, Latina/os, and other marginalized groups by his own statements and policy proposals. Voters have a compelling need to view and hear what this man says about those issues behind the scenes. The compelling public interest overrides the confidentiality clauses MGM and Burnett are hiding behind. Those rules are not intended to shield a presidential candidate from scrutiny that he has invited by making his racism, xenophobia and misogyny a campaign issue.

The groups will march into MGM’s headquarters and deliver an open letter. The groups believe that voters have a right to hear and see footage from Trump’s time on the Apprentice.
