Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, has sued Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes and is alleging that the real reason she was fired her from the network last month is that she rebuffed his sexual advances and complained to him about discriminatory treatment in the newsroom. The lawsuit was filed in Superior Court in New Jersey, where Mr. Ailes lives. The suits alleges charging that he ogled Ms. Carlson in his office, called her “sexy” and frequently made sexually charged comments about her physical appearance.
She alleges that Mr. Ailes told her: “I think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago and then you’d be good and better and I’d be good and better. She alleges that after she refused, Mr. Ailes retaliated, reducing Ms. Carlson’s salary and limiting her on-air appearances. Then Fox refused to renew her contract last month.
