From Fox News: Tom Frieden, the former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and an ex-New York City Health Commissioner, has been arrested amid allegations he sexually harassed a woman in his Brooklyn apartment.

Police confirmed to Fox News that Frieden, 57, surrendered to the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit at the 77th precinct Friday and has been charged with forcible touching, sexual abuse and harassment.

The charges stem from allegations he groped a woman he knew last October at his home in Brooklyn Heights, ABC7 reported.

Frieden, who now works at Vital Strategies, a non-profit global health organization, was the head of New York’s health department from 2002 to 2009 and the CDC from 2009 to 2017. He resigned from the CDC on the day of President Trump’s inauguration.

Frieden worked with Michael Bloomberg when he was mayor of New York. In 2003, the city banned smoking in almost all workplaces under his tenure, while in 2006 the city became the first in the U.S. to ban restaurants from using artificial trans fats.

He was head of the CDC during the major Ebola and Zika epidemics, undertaking what he called the “largest mobilization of CDC in history.”

One person who used to work with him told the Washington Post they were “shocked” to hear of the allegations. “I never, ever heard of any instances in the past, or any kind of accusations like this in the past,” the person said. “It’s totally out of the character that I knew and worked with.”

That he resigned from the CDC on the day of the President’s inauguration IS suspicious! I remember the Ebola scare, although I’m not sure there was anything more to it than just another way to scare people. There’s no telling what goes on behind the doors of the CDC. In Dave McGowan’s book, “Programmed to Kill”, he talks about some strange goings-on with the cases of the Atlanta child murders and some possible ties to experiments conducted by the CDC. Of course, those murders were happening in the years just before the AIDS epidemic hit. I don’t trust them at… Read more »


Why are people shocked to hear allegations of sexual misconduct? The guy has been charged an arrested and if convicted let him pay with lost time, his reputation ruined and he’ll go down in shame. Serves him right. And so, like the song says, “ ? and the beat goes on…….”


I see him in the pic looking so meek and puny makes my stomach turn 90º. SOB


So interesting to see what is coming after the flood of government resignations that followed President Trump’s inauguration!


Was he harassing humans? You had too be a real “stand out” in the Obongo administration to be noticed in the sexual depravity department.
