Lisa Borders, Dijon Bowden

Lisa Borders stepped down as Time's Up president and CEO after her son, Garry "Dijon" Bowden, Jr. was accused of sexual misconduct, according to published reports.

The L.A. Times reports that her son was accused of misconduct by a 31-year-old woman from Santa Monica, CA, who made the claims in a post on Facebook.

Bowden, whose many titles include "life coach" and photographer, reportedly touched the woman inappropriately during a "healing session."

According to the Times, Bowden kissed the woman on the neck, touched her with his clothed, erect penis and made contact with her genitalia during the session.

A lawyer representing Bowden denied the allegations, saying the woman thanked Bowden multiples times after the session.

The lawyer also claimed the woman described the massage as “gentle and authentic and loving” in a text message sent to Bowden, which the lawyer reportedly showed to the newspaper.

Lisa Borders

Borders announced her resignation on Monday, Feb. 18. At the time she said she was resigning to deal with family issues. She was forced to elaborate further after she was implicated in the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax in Chicago.

Smollett, 36, was arrested and charged with faking a hate crime in Chicago, a felony in Illinois that carries a 1-3 year prison term.

Smollett and presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) were photographed protesting at a Time's Up rally in California. The photo was circulated on social media, and there were rumors that Harris, who is a close friend of Illinois's top attorney, Kim Foxx, used her influence with Foxx and the State Attorney's office to show favoritism to Smollett.

Social media users also circulated a tweet that shows Foxx posing in a photo with Harris. In the tweet, Foxx thanked Harris for being her mentor.

Foxx recused herself from the investigation into Smollet's alleged hate crime this week. Her recusal raised questions among the local media outlets in Chicago.

Borders was named the first president and CEO of Time's Up, 10 months after the organization was created in 2018 to promote women's rights after Harvey Weinstein and others were accused of sexual misconduct.

She previously served as Atlanta City Council President. She is a former president of the Women's National Basketball Association, and a former Vice President of Global Community Affairs at The Coca-Cola Company. Borders also ran as an Atlanta mayoral candidate in 2009.

    She’s TIRED of him! She’s probably been taking care of his “many title” behind all of his life! I believe She also resigned because the media is getting ready to do some digging and will find out that’s she has gotten him out of trouble many times! I believe her resignation is much BIGGER then this incident! As a professional she didn’t want to murky up the organization with her sons BS! Smh. It appears she’s not hurting for money ...so she’ll be fine..

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Sadly but yes these things dont happen in a vaccum I live in Atlanta. I have noticed a pathology with the strong mothers who are extremely successful they give birth or raise little b-tches rather they intend to do it or not. A boy at a certain age wants to see the strength and success driven attributes in a man that he can pattern himself from not a women! It makes the boy doubt himself and his skills/goals because everything is seen through the prism of female energy and not a male hence when he is in the mainstream of other males he can't cope so he retreats to his mommy and her basement of security that he resents and this is how he acts out on other women for some sense of control...smh that is why I have NEVER believed a women could raise a boy to a man.

  • Renee26

    She's not responsible for her sons actions...she shoulda made an example outta his ass and showed the community that she's committed to the cause amd won't even tolerate abuse from her own family.

  • Cricket404

    Damn, I feel for her. He probably hates her. I have family and friends that are struggling with their adult sons. One mother had a heart attack from all the stress caused by a basement dwelling little demon.

  • Let them eat cake

    lmaoooo heheeeeeeeeee

  • Li-Wright

    He touched her inappropriately? Look....I've had massages by men and if they touched me inappropriately I wouldn't know. I'm so relaxed and happy to have healing hands. Usually if you're getting a massage the man/woman asks if it's comfortable or discomfort. So if he had a healing session, what did she want him to do? Did he explain the session before she started? I don't trust some of these stupid women.

  • Strappyheels

    Association..

    This lady supposedly used her influence to get special treatment for Smollett’s hoax!!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if this goes up a higher level.

    We cannot do what Alabaster’s do. No matter how many law degrees and what not you have..

  • Li-Wright

    But we don't know what touching Inappropriately means? Do you? If you're having a "healing session" that's like a massage and unless they go up your legs....they could touch your breasts....I just wonder if this was the woman's first "healing session."

  • Li-Wright

    Black men going down 1, 2, 3. It's going to be so bad all the black heterosexual men are going to be afraid to look, talk to or walk with a woman.
    You know I remember back in the 1960s during the Civil Rights era.....and black men left black women in droves for white women....they were free to have a white woman and they stayed with them.
    I can see if this continues with Black men (R. Kelly, et al) they won't even want to talk to a black woman.

  • Li-Wright

    It's going to get so that there are going to be cameras in the room when you get a massage. Also, when you pay to leave, the clerk always asks you to fill out a survey or asks, "how was your session." I need more info about this touching inappropriately and I wonder if the lady was a first time client.

  • XoXo

    I feel sorry for this lady, for her life & career to be interrupted by the alleged action of her son.

  • Nik

    I agree 100% on all of this. No kidding, I went to the doctor last week we had a laugh and he innocently tapped my leg. He's a jolly old guy so I thought nothing of it, but he pulled his hand back really fast and said he was sorry. I thought nothing of it but these days there are people who will take advantage of the climate we're in and accuse him. But back to your comment, good question re: first time client.

  • Renee26

    Her claim seems fishy if she did indeed send follow-up texts to him saying how she enjoyed it. These "healers" practice all types of weird ish, I don't doubt he did any of the actions... but I'm sceptical of whether or not it was ok with her while it was happening

  • dontgetblocked

    Rubbing an erect penis on a woman is not part of a healing session. The woman could have been sexually abused and froze up or was fearful of saying something. I had a man masturbate at a community area next to me. Once I realized what he was doing, I was too shocked and scared to move. I finally gathered my wits and got out of there. I had to be strongly encouraged to report the incident. It turns out, there were other incidents...including one where he was caught peeping into a 7 year old girl's window. Perverts are real and you never know when you'll run into one.

  • Hazel

    It says Harris used her influence with Foxx, not Borders....still confused.

  • Applebootay

    Rubbing his erect penis gently against her vagina is probably inappropriate

  • Bee jaay Cee

    I'm with you on this one. I'm sick of hearing about Jussie, then here comes Jussie and Kamala. I don't get it.

  • NewNew

    Lord, I wish i could read this thread but I blockrd Robert Lee Bennett many moons ago. Looks like you dug up in dat as? though. ??

  • EyeEmJai

    It should be reported as much as JS made sure what was allegedly done to him was PUBLIC. Every action has a reaction; he wanted it publicize, so it's publicize (lies and all). I don't get why some don't understand that.

    3 degrees of separation.

    1. Lisa Borders was the president of Time's Up.
    2. Kamala and Jussie were big supporters of Time's Up.
    3. Kim Foxx is the State's Attorney for Cook County, Illinois.
    4. Kim oversaw Jussie's case until she recused herself this week.
    4. Kim and Kamala are very close friends.
    5. Kamala mentored Kim.

  • Nik

    Sounds like what happened to my grandmother. To this day my uncle is living in deep regret because he argued with her so bad and she wound up dying in her sleep. He said he didn't even know why he was fussing with her, that's how sick he is. I am still not over her passing but I am glad she is free from his antagonism. He was a b@st@rd to her.

  • brooklyn23

    Facts! Pls I was about 10 walking to school with 2 other girls and we walked past this man's window (in a building) his window was on 1st fl, so Im assuming now he probably would look to see who was about to walk past or maybe he was just standing there the whole time masterbating. And another time I was younger and I was in front of my house and this guy pulled over in his car and had his shit out masterbating. Shit is real and it's disturbing especially for young person like I was to see that
