LOS ANGELES — Fox News said Saturday that it has suspended Eric Bolling, co-host of its news program “The Specialists,” while it investigates allegations he sent a lewd photo to co-workers.

A network spokesperson confirmed Bolling’s suspension and investigation in an email.

News of the suspension came a day after a Huff Post report relying on anonymous sources said Bolling had sent a lewd photo to at least three female colleagues at Fox.

“The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair,” Bolling’s attorney Michael J. Bowe wrote in an email.

Bolling has been a vocal supporter of President Trump. In a March op-ed, he accused House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and establishment Republicans of betraying the president with their version of a plan to overhaul the nation’s health system.

The suspension is the latest in a string of sexual harassment complaints against personalities who appear on Fox News and its business network. In July, Fox Business Network host Charles Payne was suspended after the Los Angeles Times reported that he harassed a female political analyst. Payne remains under suspension while an investigation continues.

Other harassment allegations have been leveled against Fox News’ former star, Bill O’Reilly, who was fired in April after several women reported being harassed by him.

The network’s founding leader Roger Ailes resigned in July 2016 because of harassment allegations. He died in May after a fall at his home.
