With the Connecticut Republican Party state convention less than a week away, World Wrestling Entertainment mogul Linda McMahon is leading in the polls for the nomination in the general election this fall to succeed retiring Democratic Senator Chris Dodd.
This blog has been filling in some of the record of McMahonâ€™s experience running WWE in partnership with her husband Vince. Most recently I have been focusing on what I call WWEâ€™s corporate culture of sexual harassment â€“ a subject made topical by the departure of its head in-house lawyer after a complaint that he harassed a lower-ranked manager.
â€œIn Bed With the WWF: Sex and Scandal in Pro Wrestlingâ€ originally appeared in August 2000 in ThePosition.com, an online magazine then published by the Museum of Sex in New York. The piece would become Chapter 4 of my 2007 book WRESTLING BABYLON.
The Museum of Sex â€“ which is still thriving even if its magazine isnâ€™t â€“ stiffed me out of my contracted $1,000 fee. If Linda McMahon gets angry about anything in this article, I suggest that she deliver a solid kick in the nuts to the museumâ€™s deadbeat founder and director, Jeffrey Gluck.
