She won an Emmy in 2009 for her writing work on the show, but was let go at the end of season three. The young writer-who had been hired a few years before as Mr. Weiner's personal assistant-seemed to be on top of the world. "He does not remember said this comment nor does it reflect a comment he would said to any colleague".

In an interview with The Information, Gordon accused Weiner of turning a late-night writing session into a chance to break boundaries and all semblance of professional conduct.

"I thought, 'I can't do anything to jeopardize.' I need this credit". It was extremely satisfying, ' said Gordon of her initial excitement. If even a fraction of the current stories we're hearing turn out to be true (and frankly, they all sound credible to me), then she has her work cut out for her. According to Gordon, Weiner's behaviour left her so shaken that she hasn't worked in television since. "So I did what I thought women were supposed to do".

Not long after, Weiner offered her the opportunity to co-write that season finale with him, a shot he'd given to his previous writers' assistants. She was sacked a year later, which prompted media to speculate on the reasons, since she had just shared an Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series Emmy in 2009 with Weiner. "Having a script or some sentences cued up as an arsenal - like a self-defense harassment arsenal - I could have used that in that moment, and it would have saved me years of regret that I didn't handle that situation differently".

His decision to fire Gordon did cause quite a bit of a stir, with Gawker the first to jump at the news. Gordon would go on to win an Emmy for writing the Season 2 finale episode, "Meditations in an Emergency", but was sacked from the staff a year later and has not worked in the industry since. When Gordon asked why, she claims that Weiner began telling her about all the ways she had "fallen short". Gordon said she lost her passion to write following the alleged incident and is now creating a nonprofit to aid victims of sexual harassment called Modern Alliance. The statement also said, "During the nine years he was showrunner on 'Mad Men, ' Mr. Weiner had a predominantly female driven writers room". Said Gordon, "I spent a couple days feeling down and feeling upset and aimless".
