After Fox News suspended host Eric Bolling due to indecent behavior, his lawyer released a statement, noting that his client never send nude photos of himself to female coworkers.
Bolling’s lawyer, Michael J. Bowe, said the story is not credible enough to hold, noting it was also twisted to sabotage his client, by persuading everyone that he did send inappropriate photos to his female colleagues.
“The story is based on anonymous sources and not true,” Bowe said in a statement about his client’s alleged “inappropriate behavior” Friday night. “No such unsolicited communications occurred.”
Read Bowe’s original statement regarding the matter: .
“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 investigation on Bolling has been led by Paul Weiss’ law firm, which also took care of cases on Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, which is still ongoing.
Bolling found himself in whole lot of trouble, after two of his female coworkers accused him of sending them nude photos of his private parts, while acting causal about it.
“Recipients of the photo confirmed its contents to HuffPost, which is not revealing their identities. The women, who are Bolling’s current and former Fox colleagues, concluded the message was from him because they recognized his number from previous work-related and informal interactions. The messages were sent several years ago, on separate occasions,” the report points out.
Fox News have lost several staffers due to sexual harassment claims, including Bill O’Reilly, Ailes and now Bolling. The thing is, we are not so sure this is so random as it seems.
