(Newser) – An entry-level stockbroker is suing her boss, saying he sent her lewd text messages and a video of a man masturbating. “I saw like a second of it and I just closed it,” Karen Lo tells the New York Daily News. “It was disgusting and pretty inappropriate.” Lo is suing Thomas Guerriero, namesake of Guerriero Wealth Holdings. The 20-year-old was hired there last year, and says she began getting leering texts almost immediately.

“What man out there ever thinks sending text messages like that is going to generate a response from a woman of, 'Oh, where have you been all my life?'” marvels Lo's lawyer. But Guerriero calls the allegations “completely without merit. They are manufactured by a woman with credibility problems in the hopes of obtaining an unwarranted financial windfall.” (Read more sexual harassment stories.)
