A new lawsuit filed by former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros against the network and several senior executives describes an encounter with former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as an example of a culture at the cable channel that tolerated sexual harassment.
Brown, a frequent contributor as a political commentator on the news network, allegedly made inappropriate comments to Tantaros last summer while on set for an appearance on “Outnumbered.” Brown called the claims “completely and totally false” in a statement to Politico on Tuesday, Aug. 23, and he was not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
Fox News has been roiled by claims of sexual harassment by former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, who was forced to resign after several high profile female employees came forward with complaints about their treatment at the network.
