  1. Jordan Robertson of Associated Press reports that the woman at the center of the sexual harassment claim that forced the resignation of Hewlett-Packard CEO, Mark Hurd, revealed her identity Sunday and said she is “surprised and saddened” that Hurd lost his job.

    Jodie Fisher, 50, knew Hurd through her contract jobs with HP’s marketing department from 2007 to 2009. She was paid up to $5,000 per event to greet people and make introductions among executives attending HP events that she helped organize.

    Details revealed Sunday show that she has also worked as a saleswoman, an executive at a commercial real estate company, and as an actress.

    Fisher repeated that she and Hurd never had a sexual relationship; but neither she nor Allred would discuss details of the harassment claim.

  2. Weird, they left out her stint as a seamstress in her work bio.
