Fox News has been rocked by sexual harassment scandals.

Network President Roger Ailes and top-rated host Bill O’Reilly were forced to resign.

Now, Fox just got some more bad news.

Fox Business Channel suspended host Charles Payne after pundit Scottie Nell Hughes claimed he sexually harassed her.

The two were involved in an affair for three years, and Hughes claims she carried on the relationship because of Payne’s promises that it would lead to a permanent role on the network.

Hughes also alleged her television appearances were reduced because she ended the affair.

The Daily Caller reports:

Fox Business Network suspended host Charles Payne Thursday night after political commentator Scottie Nell Hughes accused him of sexual harassment.

The “Making Money” host has been suspended pending further investigation, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“We take issues of this nature extremely seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy for any professional misconduct,” a Fox representative said. “This matter is being thoroughly investigated and we are taking all of the appropriate steps to reach a resolution in a timely manner.”

Payne admitted to having an affair from 2013 to 2016 with Hughes, a former CNN employee who was often a guest on Fox News. Hughes is married. He made a statement to the National Enquirer Wednesday, apologizing to his family and friends.

The sexual harassment allegations came after Hughes went to Fox News’ law firm and accused Payne of misconduct, saying that he snubbed her after she tried to end the affair in 2015. She told her lawyer that she continued the affair “because she believed he would help her chances of landing a position at the network,” according to LA Times’ sources. She alleges that Payne threatened unfavorable consequences if she did not acquiesce.

Now Hughes is targeting Payne, arguing that her appearances on the network declined remarkably after she ended their relationship.

Payne fired back and vehemently denied the allegations.

Variety reports:

Fox Business Network host Charles Payne pushed back on allegations of sexual harassment that have been levied against him, taking to Twitter to defend himself.

“That is an ugly lie I vehemently deny to my core. There is a mountain of proof that also proves it’s a lie,” Payne said in a statement that was posted Friday morning.

If the allegations are true, Payne would be the third Fox employee taken down by sexual harassment allegations.

But are they?
