Roger Ailes hit with new sexual harassment allegations

By Rob Smith, Buzz60

New sexual harassment allegations have emerged against former Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

Just months after Ailes was ousted from Fox News over allegedly sexually harassing anchors Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly among others, Fox 5 NYC reporter Lidia Curanaj is saying she was also harassed by Ailes.

Curanaj met Ailes at an event she'd attended with a former boyfriend, former NY State Senator Gregory Ball.

When she interviewed for an on-air position at Fox News, she alleges Ailes asked to "see her from behind." She obliged, and Ailes later called Ball and asked inappropriate questions about her, which led Ball to tell him - indirectly - that Curanaj wouldn't sleep with him.

Curanaj says she was then told she wouldn't be hired at Fox News, and believes it was because she wouldn't sleep with Ailes.

Curanaj started with Fox5 New York a few months after that meeting, and also claims in the lawsuit that she's been the target of gender and age discrimination during her tenure there.
