Wisconsin billionaire John Menard sued for sexual harassment

The wife of a former business partner of John Menard, the founder and owner of the Menards home improvement store chain, has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the 73-year-old billionaire.

Tomisue Hilbert alleges that Menard touched her and pressured her to have sex with him and his wife on several occassions and that he threatened severe financial consequences if she didn’t comply with his demands for sex.

When Hilbert refused to have sex with the billionaire, Menard allegedly retaliated against her by firing her husband, Stephen Hilbert, who managed a number of Menard’s private equity funds, and by filing lawsuits against the Hilberts.
