The buzz on Twitter & blogs is that the commentator is Trump surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes
NY Daily News: A Fox Business Network host has been suspended amid sexual allegations brought up against him by a former female commentator.
Charles Payne, who hosts “Making Money,” admitted he had a “romantic relationship” with a political analyst, who had worked for CNN, for about three years, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“We take issues of this nature extremely seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy for any professional misconduct,” a Fox Business Network spokesman said in a statement to the newspaper. “This matter is being thoroughly investigated and we are taking all of the appropriate steps to reach a resolution in a timely manner.”
The allegations against Payne are being investigated by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison — the same firm that had probed the network's parent company, 21st Century Fox, in previous sexual harassment claims against other personalities and executives. The accuser, who wasn’t named, told the law firm she was booted from the network after ending her affair with Payne and trying to report him to Fox News executives, sources told the Times. The woman alleges her TV appearances were cut back instantly.
