Fox News suspended host Eric Bolling Saturday pending an investigation into allegations of him sending lewd “d**k pics” to female colleagues. The lawyers probing the accusations on behalf of the right-wing network now have another alleged victim to consider, as former Fox News guest Caroline Heldman came forward Saturday with her own charges against Bolling.

In a long statement posted on social media Saturday, Heldman, an associate professor at Occidental College, said that she witnessed first-hand Bolling’s sexual harassment.

“My only surprise is that it took this long for people to come forward about Bolling’s behavior, which has been wildly inappropriate for years,” Heldman wrote in a Facebook post.

Heldman, who has made over 100 guest appearances on Fox News, did not claim to receive any “d**k picks,” but she did cite concrete, yet unconfirmed examples of Bolling’s inappropriate behavior:

Bolling referred to me as “Dr. McHottie” on air on four different occasions, and called me “smart, beautiful, and wrong” on air twice. I pushed back with “Mr. McSexist,” but I shouldn’t have had to. This on-air behavior was perfectly acceptable to Fox executives at the time.

Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows, sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk. He said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have “fun.”
