A well known Fox News anchor has been suspended until further notice. Eric Bolling was recently suspended on the grounds of Sexual Harassment. The suspension is currently pending investigation into a few accusations of lewd messages sent to many of his female coworkers at Fox News.
On Saturday afternoon a Fox spokesperson confirmed the suspension saying, “Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway,”
There have been rumors that the Paul Weiss law firm will be investigating the case, but that is still unconfirmed at this time.

The Huffington Post received reports from multiple sources claiming that no less than two of Bollings female coworkers received photos of what is assumed to be Bollings genitals. The photos were sent from his phone. The two women claim the photos were unsolicited.
The messages were reportedly sent years ago, and on several different occasions. The Huffington Post called the images “deeply upsetting and offensive” to the women who spoke to the news outlet about the incidents.
Bolling’s attorney claims he had no recollection of sending those pictures and he stands firm in the belief that he did not send them. Here was his statement,“Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made,”
The allegations come after a rough patch for Fox News. It was not to long ago that host Bill O’Reilly was forcibly removed from the payroll after reports surfaced that he paid over $13 million to quiet five women who accused him of harassment.
