Bill O'Reilly accuser appears on 'The View'

POSTED: April 20, 2017 12:35 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — One of Bill O'Reilly's accusers says she felt triumphant when the Fox News Channel host was fired following an investigation into claims of harassment by women.
Perquita Burgess, a former clerical worker at Fox, went on "The View" Thursday to talk about encounters with O'Reilly nine years ago. Burgess first made her complaint public on Tuesday through attorney Lisa Bloom but did so anonymously. Now she's come forward to be identified. Burgess, who is black, says O'Reilly leered at her and made grunting noises when he passed her desk and once referred to her as "hot chocolate."
Seeing O'Reilly lose his job because of actions against women felt very cathartic, she said.
