No ’50 state club’ for us! Barkeeps cry harassment

Two former Hilton Minneapolis bartenders are suing the downtown hotel, claiming they were punished for spurning a female manager’s sexual overtures and then complaining about sexual harassment.

Both said the manager tried to seduce them in her quest to join the “50 state club” by having sex with at least one resident of each state.

Their lawsuit claims the woman reduced the bartenders’ hours when they refused her advances.

One of the bartenders admitted he succumbed to the manager’s charms in a one-time fling. However, when he broke off the short-lived affair, she allegedly berated him in public.

The complaint lists six charges: sexual discrimination and harassment, retaliation, negligence, negligent infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy, and assault and battery.
