Former assistant accuses Facebook CEO’s Security Chief of misconduct

Mark Zuckerberg’s Personal Security Chief, Liam Booth, has been placed on administrative leave after the former Secret Service officer’s previous EA accused him of sexual misconduct and making racist and homophobic remarks. The list of accusations from the former staff member outlines “horrific levels of sexual harassment and battery,” and “pervasive discriminatory conduct.”

Mr Booth’s former EA, and a previous member of the Zuckerberg’s household staff, brought the allegations via the law offices of The Bloom Firm. The Zuckerberg family is conducting an investigation into the allegations, according to Ben LaBolt, a spokesperson for the Chan-Zuckerberg family office.

“As soon as The Bloom Firm presented these allegations, the family office engaged Munger, Tolles & Olson, an outside law firm, to conduct an investigation of all allegations made by The Bloom Firm to determine whether the claims have merit. The investigation is ongoing,” he said.
