Sexual harassment cases happen all the time at the work place. In most cases, they go unknown to the public. But when a celebrity or politician is involved in a sexual harassment case, it often turns into a media circus.

Here are our top five most notable sexual harassment cases.

5. Bill O’Reilly

Bill O’Reilly was charged with sexual harassment and sued for $60 million in 2004 by former producer for The O’Reilly Factor Andrea Mackris. Mackris would claim that O’Reilly would sexually harass her and make crude comments about masturbation, threesomes, and Caribbean shower fantasies.

She would later settle out of court for an undisclosed amount of money.

4. Bill Clinton

While Bill Clinton was running for president in 1991, Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee claimed that Clinton pulled down his pants and asked her for oral sex in a hotel room.

Clinton would wind up paying Jones just under one million dollars, despite never admitting guilt just to keep her quiet.

3. Mark Foley

Mark Foley was a Republican congressman from Florida who was also the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children.

Foley became infamous as the first politician caught up in the Internet era of sexual harassment scandals. He was caught sending emails to male congressional pages asking for fellatio and pictures of their penises. He would also send sexually explicit instant messages to young males.

Foley would later enter rehab and claim that he was molested himself.

2. Britney Spears

Britney Spears was sued by former bodyguard Fernando Flores for sexual harassment. Flores would claim that Spears made unwanted sexual advances to him, exposed her private parts to him on numerous occasions, and said that she would abuse her children numerous times.

Spears’ attorney accused the bodyguard of “trying to cash in on Ms. Spears’ celebrity by making salacious claims of misconduct.”

1. Clarence Thomas

When Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court by former president George H.W. Bush, old allegations of sexual harassment were levied upon him from an attorney who worked for him at the Department Of Education. The woman’s name was Anita Hill.

Hill was called to Senate to testify and said that Thomas made comments about group sex, rape, bestiality, and bragged about his anatomy and sexual prowess to her. She also said he once asked, “Who put a pubic hair on my Coke?”

Thomas was later confirmed despite Hill’s testimony.
