Tuesday's intriguing people

Meg Whitman

In June 2007, the current Republican candidate for governor of California allegedly became angry at an eBay employee and shoved her in an executive conference room.

The New York Times, after interviewing multiple anonymous sources with knowledge of the incident, reports that Young Mi Kim was preparing the eBay chief for a news media interview when the dispute began.

According to the newspaper, Kim hired a lawyer after the incident, but the dispute was resolved under the supervision of a private mediator, and the company paid Kim a six-figure settlement.

Kim, who is now an eBay senior manager for corporate and executive communications, said in an e-mail that she and Whitman had overcome their differences.
