A man who actress Demi Moore hired to manage her Idaho, America, ranch claims she tried to seduce him - and sacked him when he turned her down. Lawrence Bass claims the film star came on to him like she did to Michael Douglas in hit movie Disclosure. He has filed a complaint with the Idaho Human Rights Commission, accusing Moore of sexual harassment and discrimination. He is also seeking more than $180,000 in damages. But the actress's lawyer Martin Singer says he is contemplating a countersuit against Bass for talking to the media. He says, "This guy signed a confidentiality agreement." The lawyer added Bass was a "disgruntled ex-employee" and that his "ridiculous lawsuit has no merit." Bass, 43, told an American magazine, "She thinks she can turn on her sexual powers and get whatever she wants from any man. And, like her character in that movie, she seeks revenge when she's rejected." In Disclosure, Moore's character lied and claimed Douglas sexually harassed her.
--You might have heard about this already. But my question is, maybe its just me, if Demi came on to you, why would you not take it? Not counting the $$$, I think she is pretty hot. But thats just me.

May 9, 2003 -- What guy on earth would turn down Demi Moore? A former manager at her Idaho estate, that's who - he's filed a sexual-harassment complaint against the Hollywood hottie, claiming she improperly touched him.
Lawrence Bass, 43, says it happened during a meeting outside her private bedroom in 2002.
In his complaint filed with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Idaho Human Rights Commission, Bass says he was speaking with Moore about discipline problems he was having with her pet golden Labrador, Daisy.
The complaint says Moore "began rubbing Mr. Bass's leg up into the inner thigh.
"[H]e protested, removed her hand . . . and reminded Ms. Moore that her sexual advances were inappropriate and unwelcome."
Bass was canned a few months after the incident. When he complained to labor authorities, Moore's ex-husband Bruce Willis warned him to "stay the f--- away from my family," Star magazine reports.
Bass, also a former butler to Hugh Hefner, is seeking $206,700 in damages for sexual harassment and unlawful termination.
For Moore, this is also a case of life imitating art - the alleged incident is strikingly similar to one in the 1994 flick "Disclosure," in which she plays a seductive bombshell of a boss hit by sexual-harassment allegations by her employee, played by Michael Douglas.

I found that earlier and it wasn't helpful. All of the quotes and numbers deal with the 1990s, and I'm looking for something that describes the number of personal computers in the 80s as well. Oh well...a late-night trip to Borders may be in order. DMC
