Fox News suspends host Eric Bolling amid sexting allegations

"Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway", the network said in a statement on Saturday.

Fox News announced Saturday that it had suspended Eric Bolling, co-host of "Cashin' In" and "The Specialists", after The Huffington Post reported Friday that Bolling had sent photos of male genitalia to female colleagues. Last year, then-Fox News head Roger Ailes resigned in the wake of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson.

Following news of Bolling's suspension, Caroline Heldman, who appeared as a guest on the network frequently between 2008 and 2011, also came forward claiming Bolling was one of three Fox News/Fox Business employees to subject her to sexual harassment. Mother Jones was first to report this week that Heldman, under the penalty of perjury, signed a declaration stating that Fraser offered her a paid Fox News contributor gig in exchange for sex.

Eric's attorney has denied all reports against him. He also has hosted "All-American New Year", the New Year's Eve special on Fox News, the past two years.

As news of the allegations against Bolling broke, Fox News took Bolling off the air and removed his name from some of their promotional materials.

A vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, Bolling wrote a March op-ed accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, and establishment Republicans of betraying the president with their version of a plan to overhaul the nation's health system. And I don't know if it's worse or it's just more public.

Remarkably, Bolling is not the only Fox host that is sitting on the proverbial bench right now. He said he wanted to fly me out to NY for in-studio hits and to have 'fun.' He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go.

Although a rep for Bolling didn't immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment, CNN Money reporter Jackie Wattles received an email Saturday from Bolling's lawyer Michael Bowe saying, "The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair".

Heldman stated that he once offered to fly her to NY to "have fun", and that the one time she agreed to see his office, he immediately told her it was his favorite place to have sex.

Bolling is a co-host of "The Specialists", a panel program that airs every weekday at 5 p.m. Still, it remains the most-watched network in cable news.
