Former Fox News Channel CEO and chairman Roger Ailes resigned in disgrace last yer after numerous women, including on-air host Gretchen Carlson, accused the TV exec of sexual harassment. Here are some of the women who have come forward.
Carlson brought the allegations to light when she filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes, who has denied all the allegations included in this gallery. In September 2016, Fox News apologized to Carlson and agreed to pay her $20 million.
Megyn Kelly told internal investigators that she was harassed by Ailes a decade ago, according to New York Magazine.
Former Fox News correspondent Rudi Bakhtiar told the magazine she was fired from Fox News after complaining about sexual harassment.
Fox News commentator Andrea Tantaros told New York that she complained several times that Ailes had acted inappropriately. (New Fox News co-president Bill Shine denies she complained about Ailes to him.)
An attorney for former Fox News anchor Laurie Dhue said Ailes asked if she was wearing underwear while she jumped on a trampoline with Ailes’ then 6-year-old son, the Daily Beast reported.
Fox News booker Laurie Luhn told lawyers that Ailes sexually harassed and “psychological tortured” her for more than 20 years, according to New York mag.
Former Republic National Committee field adviser Kellie Boyle told New York that Ailes once told her she “might have to give a blow job every once in a while.”
Former model Marsha Callahan told New York that Ailes requested she wear “a garter belt and stockings” and asked for sex in exchange for a TV appearance.
Former models named Susan and Jane, a media consultant named Diane and a former TV producer named Pat also told New York that Ailes harassed them but didn’t want their full names used.
In April 2017, Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Julie Roginsky filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the network, Ailes and current co-president Bill Shine. The suit alleged that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances on Roginsky, while leading her to believe that a promotion would follow.
