Microsoft Board Recommended Bill Gates Step Down After Investigation

Bill Gates allegedly had a relationship with a female Microsoft employee for years, according to a new Wall Street Journal report.

They say Microsoft Corp. began investigating Gates after the employee wrote a letter.

In it, she says she and Gates were engaged in a sexual relationship for several years.

Board members decided in 2020 that it was inappropriate for Gates to continue serving on the board based on their investigation.

Bill and Melinda Gates recently announced their divorce after 27 years of marriage.
