According to HuffPost, current and former colleagues say Eric Bolling, co-host of “The Specialists” and former member of “The Five,” sent them a photo of male genitals.
At least ten sources supported the women’s claims that several years ago they received the image from Bolling. This latest accusation arrives on the heels of the late Roger Ailes’ resignation from the company after Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment suit against him, as well as Bill O’Reilly’s ouster after The New York Times reported that he’d settled several sexual harassment lawsuits. The network suspended host Charles Payne last month after similar allegations, and in April, Fox contributor Debbie Schlussel claimed that she was “banned” from Sean Hannity’s show after rejecting his sexual advances.

Fox just renewed Bolling’s contract in June, putting the kibosh on speculation that the anchor and former commodities trader planned on joining the Trump administration. According to HuffPost, the president granted Bolling an exclusive interview and tweeted support for the host “at least a dozen times.”
Through his lawyer, Bolling responded to the accusations by saying he “does not believe he sent any such communications.”
