Two women suing Brett Favre for sexual harassment

According to ABC News, two women are suing Brett Favre for sexual harassment after he made “lewd passes” at them while they were massage therapists for the Jets.

Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole, both former massage therapists for the New York Jets, filed suit against Favre, the New York Jets and Lisa Ripi, a woman who hires massage therapists for the team, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York today.

In the suit, Scavo alleges that Favre sent text messages to another unidentified massage therapist, asking Scavo and the unidentified woman to “get together” with Favre.

Scavo said that in 2008 while Favre was with the New York Jets, he treated her like a “hanging slab of meat.” In the suit she claims he wanted a three-way with her and another therapist.

Favre allegedly texted the unidentified therapist, writing, “Brett here, you and Crissy want to get together, I’m all alone,” according to the lawsuit.

Favre allegedly sent another text message reading, “Kinda lonely tonight, I guess I have
bad intentions.”

Scavo claimed that after she refused Favre’s advances and had her husband, Joseph Scavo, call Favre to demand an apology, both Scavo and the other plaintiff, Shannon O’Toole, were never offered work with the Jets again.

Scavo’s husband said he confronted the quarterback to stop soliciting his wife and asked for an apology, but Favre “responded in an inappropriate manner and refused,” according to the lawsuit.

This is what Jenn Sterger should have done if she was serious about wanting Favre to be punished for “harassing” her: file a lawsuit and let the courts deal with it. Instead, Sterger and her overpaid lawyer demanded that the NFL punish Favre and then stated how disappointed they were that the league only fined him. Get real.

When these women first made headlines with their Favre story, some people thought they were just trying to get their 15 minutes of fame and follow in Sterger’s footsteps. But this suit proves that they mean business.

Favre won’t be able to duck the court system like he did with the NFL when it came to the Sterger investigation. The Supreme Court isn’t going to fine him $50,000 for lack of cooperation and send him on his way. They’re going to come after him hard.

This just proves that our pasts will come back to haunt as at some point.
