STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

This week, another big name in tech was toppled by accusations of sexual harassment — venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson, an investor in Tesla and SpaceX who left his prominent Silicon Valley company.

The big-money world of Silicon Valley remains dominated by men and remains a hard place for women to speak out if they want to join the ranks of its richest. And some women think the best way to fight harassment is to tread carefully and get to the top.

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the sale of artworks from the Berkshire Museum, GOP vote on tax proposal, senate review of the President's nuclear power, and Roy Moore.

New York Congressman John Faso, a Republican of Kinderhook, will not vote for the House republican tax plan in its current form, according to a press release. Faso says the plan does not do enough to ease tax burdens.

"I have consistently stated that my goals for tax reform are to increase economic growth, increase worker paychecks, incentivize small business investment and ensure New York families are better off.  Unfortunately, I do not believe the current tax bill being considered by the House meets all of these goals," Faso said.  "As such, I will vote no when the bill is considered in the House of Representatives tomorrow.

Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the Republican tax plan to come to a vote this week, parents of Newtown shooting victims suing Remington gun manufacturers, and New Yorkers signing a petition to keep the name Tappan Zee on the Mario M. Cuomo bridge.

NFL-NEWS

Ben McAdoo will remain the New York Giants' head coach at least until the end of the season despite the team's 1-8 start. Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch said in a statement today that they won't evaluate the team and make any moves until the end of the season. McAdoo's future has been a major topic the past two weeks in the wake of a 34-point home loss to the Los Angeles Rams and yesterday's 10-point loss to the previously-winless San Francisco 49ers.

The 40-year-old McAdoo has seen his team fall apart after making the playoffs in his rookie season as an NFL head coach last year.

NFL NEWS

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reportedly ready to fight a proposed contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell.

A person with knowledge of the situation says Jones told the six owners on the compensation committee he had hired high-profile attorney David Boies and was prepared to sue if the group voted to extend Goodell's deal. Jones has since been embroiled in a dispute sparked by Goodell's six-game suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott over alleged domestic violence.
