New Bill O’Reilly Accuser Alleges Racial, Sexual Discrimination

New accuser “is not asking for money, just accountability” from Fox News personality, attorney says

Hopefully Bill O’Reilly is enjoying his vacation — because he’ll be coming back to a new set of harassment allegations.

The embattled Fox News personality has a new accuser, an African-American woman who was employed as a clerical worker at the network and alleges racial and sexual harassment against O’Reilly, attorney Lisa Bloom said Tuesday.

“I represent a new woman who just phoned in a complaint of sexual and racial harassment against Bill O’Reilly to the Fox News hotline,” Bloom said on Twitter.

According to Bloom, who also represents O’Reilly accuser Wendy Walsh, the new accuser is not asking for monetary compensation for the alleged harassment. The attorney did not disclose the woman’s identity.

“Like Wendy Walsh, the new O’Reilly accuser who I represent is not asking for money, just accountability,” Bloom wrote, adding,”Watch this space.”

Fox News declined to comment about the new accusation. And O’Reilly’s attorney Marc E. Kasowitz issued a statement: “It is outrageous that an allegation from an anonymous person about something that purportedly happened a decade ago is being treated as fact, especially when there is an obviously orchestrated campaign by activists and lawyers to destroy Mr. O’Reilly and enrich themselves through publicity driven donations.”

Walsh alleged that O’Reilly offered to make her a contributor on his show, but rescinded the offer after he denied her sexual advances.

After reports that some $13 million in settlements had been paid out to five women who’ve accused O’Reilly of inappropriate behavior, dozens of advertisers have pulled their support from “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Last week, O’Reilly told viewers that he is going on vacation.

Though he declined to say where he’s going, O’Reilly did specify that the trip was booked “last fall.” He explained that he likes to take a vacation in the spring and around Easter. “If you could possibly take two good trips a year, it’ll refresh your life,” he told viewers. “We all need R&R. Put it to good use.”

He is scheduled to return April 24.
