Archie Comics Bigshot -- Accused of 'Penis' Taunting

7/8/2011 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The female co-CEO of Archie Comics is accused of going on a phallic outburst in the office recently ... allegedly pointing at employees and shouting "PENIS, PENIS, PENIS, PENIS."  Oh, Archie!

Archie Comics Publications has filed legal papers against co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit -- claiming she has a history of bullying and sexually harassing employees ... and she must be stopped!

According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in NY, several employees have lodged complaints about Nancy's "offensive" behavior ... including one time in 2009, when she barged into a meeting and "pointed to each [attendee] and said, 'PENIS, PENIS, PENIS, PENIS' and then walked out."

Nancy allegedly pulled the same "penis" stunt again in 2010 -- but this time she also screamed out, "My balls hurt."

Archie Comics claims it hired an outside firm to investigate the allegations -- and the company recommended Archie cut ties with Nancy ASAP.

Now, Archie wants a judge to grant an injunction -- barring Nancy from returning to the office ... and preventing her from representing the company at the upcoming Comic-Con in San Diego.

Attempts to reach Nancy were unsuccessful.

Wait. Aren't you going to give equal time to the female JUDGE in Florida who shot pictures of guys in the bathroom? Click on the "Judges" section of Familylawcourts.com to see the penis snapping judge.

She sounds like a kook, and as such may need professional psychiatric assistance. The Board of Archie needs to terminate her employment. If she is a substantial shareholder, then the injunction would also make sense.

I wouldn't call it sexual harassment (it is just a word, after all) but it IS plain old harassment as well as unprofessional and those are both just as justifiable for termination.

More Info:
Her husband and his Best friend started and owned the company. Husband and Publishing Partner died. Partner's son took over as co-ceo along with Nancy who had no business sense or experience.

"Both the Goldwater and Silberkleit families own the company. Goldwater bought "substantial" equity, which gives him the final say in any decision regarding day-to-day operations. Still, the father of two says he and his co-CEO share an "unbreakable commitment" to preserving the company for the next generation. "It's not about each of us having our own agendas," he adds.

That comment was before Nancy started her downward spiral.

If a man were to do something similar to this in their office to the women in said office he would be fired and marked with harassment on his work history, but when the shoe is on the other foot its cool. It should not work that way

Not at all professional and a man would have been fired or sued long ago. They are opening themselves up to harrassment lawsuits and need to cut her.

But, it does sound like she has a medical condition or something else going on in her head.
