Report: FNC's Eric Bolling Accused Of Sending Lewd Photos

Eric Bolling
Fox News host Eric Bolling is accused of sending an unsolicited photo of male genitalia to at least three female co-workers years ago via text message, according to a report published Friday.

Citing 14 sources, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity, The Huffington Post reported that two female colleagues at Fox Business and one at Fox News received the lewd message from Bolling. The women who received the photos concluded they were delivered by Bolling because they recognized his phone number from previous correspondence, The Huffington Post reported.

According to HuffPo, one recipient of the message replied to Bolling via text and instructed him to stop sending her such photos. The Specialists co-host and ex-commodities trader did not respond to her message, The Huffington Post added.

"We were just informed of this late Friday afternoon via a Huffington Post inquiry and plan to investigate the matter," a Fox News spokesperson told USA TODAY about the report.

The allegations against Bolling are the latest in a wave of sexual harassment charges at Fox following the highly publicized departures of former news host Bill O'Reilly and ex-Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

For it story, HuffPost says it spoke to 14 sources in and out of Fox News and Fox Business, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity either because they currently work at the networks and aren’t allowed to speak to members of the press without prior authorization or because they have confidentiality agreements with Fox News and its parent company 21st Century Fox.
