Gretchen Carlson, formerly of Fox News, is embroiled in a lawsuit against Fox CEO Roger Ailes. Carlson is claiming that Ailes didn’t renew her contract because she refused a sexual relationship with him. Other women who work on camera have come forward in defense of Ailes. Some internal memos show that Carlson and Ailes had a professional relationship even after the meeting where she claims he demanded sex.
Carlson has a reputation of being nasty to people. An anonymous source said that Carlson treated support staff like furniture. She refused to interact with people who worked with her and was often rude.
Even Carlson’s lawyer has a questionable history. Attorney Nancy Erika Smith is a died-in-the-wool, hardcore, progressive liberal. Records indicate that she has donated somewhere in the neighborhood of $45,000 to Democrats since the mid 90s. She has supported people like, Elizabeth Warren and Howard Dean.
Is Carlson, herself, a closet liberal?
Chicks on the Right reports:
By now, you’ve probably heard about former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson’s allegations against Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Long story short, she accused him of sexual harassment after Fox News didn’t renew her contract.
Multiple people have come out in support of Ailes– Greta Van Susteren, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Neil Cavuto– you name it. (And let’s be real. If Ailes were to hit on any woman there, it’d be Kimberly Guilfoyle. She’s GORGEOUS.)
To make matters worse, Carlson seems to have a reputation of being a big time jerkface.
