Mike Bloomberg announced Friday that his company would let three former female employees out of their non-disclosure agreements should they want to make public their stories about working for him.
'Bloomberg LP has identified 3 NDAs signed over the past 30+ years with women to address complaints about comments they said I had made,' the 2020 hopeful tweeted. 'If any of them want to be released from their NDAs, they should contact the company and they'll be given a release.'
Bloomberg's flip-flop on letting ex-employees out of these contracts came after new polling showed his favorability rating dropped a net 20 points after Wednesday night's debate, according to a survey from Morning Consult.
Bloomberg was taken on by Elizabeth Warren at Wednesday's Las Vegas debate for keeping these contracts intact.
She continued to keep the narrative in the news by appearing at a CNN town hall Thursday night with a document in hand, putting her skills as a contract law professor to use.

'And I thought I would make this easy,' Warren told CNN's Erin Burnett. 'I wrote up a release and a covenant not to sue. And all that Mayor Bloomberg has to do is download it - I'll text it - sign it. And then the women, or men, will be free to speak and tell their own stories,' Warren added, as the audience laughed.
Then, ever playing the Harvard Law professor, Warren read the relevant parts:
'Bloomberg and the company release any and all obligations contained in any agreement, including but not limited to, any employment settlement, severance, or non-disclosure agreement between Bloomberg and/or the company and any other person to the extent those obligations preclude the other person from disclosing information relating to sexual
