Another whacko has come out of the woodwork to take down the conservative news network. An ex-guest on Fox is suing business anchor Charles Payne for rape.
The accuser is former guest commentator Scottie Nells-Hughes. She claims that Payne raped her and when she reported it to the network they retaliated against her. Her claim involves rape, sexual harassment and “retaliation inflicted by Fox News executives in order to protect male, on-air talent.”
When she first made the complaint Fox suspended Payne, but after investigating the matter he was cleared and is back on air hosting Making Money.
It took a bit of shopping around for a lawyer to cash in on Fox’s continued buckling to unsubstantiated claims of sexual harassment. The third time was the charm.
Nellie-Hughes claims that he seduced her into having a 3 year fling in exchange for career benefits.
She makes the following allegations in her lawsuit:
- Fox Business anchor Charles Payne raped her.
- the network retaliated against her when she reported the attack.
- Fox “victim-shamed” her.
- The network leaked false information to The National Enquirer that suggested Hughes and Payne had a consensual affair.
- In 2013 while in New York, Payne “pressured his way into Ms. Hughes’ hotel room for a ‘private discussion’” and raped her.
- Payne, 56, then coerced Hughes into a sexual relationship with him from 2013 to 2016 in exchange for “career opportunities and benefits.”
- Payne allegedly made it clear to Hughes that her appearances on Fox shows would evaporate if she ended the relationship.
- When she did try to break it off, Payne “became enraged and physically violent.”
- Hughes’ lawsuit claims when she did sever ties with Payne in 2016, her bookings at Fox dwindled over a 10-month period and then ended completely.
- Her booking agent was told by a colleague that Hughes “had an affair with someone at Fox and we were told not to book her.”
- Her manager reached out in July to the Paul, Weiss law firm, which was hired to perform internal investigations of sexual harassment claims leveled against Fox News.
- The lawyers offered a “business solution” to the rape and retaliation allegations which would include getting Hughes off the Fox blacklist.
- A few hours after making contact with the Paul, Weiss firm Hughes’ manager got a phone call from a National Enquirer reporter asking about the romance gone bad between his client and Payne — a false story the network leaked to discredit Hughes.
Payne denied Hughes’ “baseless complaint” Monday in a statement from his lawyer.
She sent Payne lewd texts during her traumatic 3 year long “rape.”
This is a bit graphic, so if you’re easily offended, skip to the next heading.
A text she sent him during the 3 year long “rape:”
“You are going to need every once [sic] of energy if we are ever given the chance of lots of time and no commitments. …’Do you know what I keep dreaming about.. You and I in the pool… My legs wrapped around your waste [sic] and you have me pressed up against the wall of the pool.’ …’Skin glistening and smelling of coconut… You thrusting yourself deeper inside with each push… And your fingers grasping each of my cheeks. Holding me to you.’”
Fox has had it with paying these women to shut up and go away.
Her lawyer originally approached the Fox legal team of Paul, Weiss, suggesting that a “business solution” would be best, as a formal investigation would surely “open a can of worms.” This time Fox did not bite the bait.
The Daily Caller reported,
“…But days later, the filing says, Fox News said a “business solution” would not be possible.
Fox News released a statement Monday calling Hughes’s lawsuit nothing more than a “publicity stunt.”
“The latest publicity stunt of a lawsuit filed by Doug Wigdor has absolutely no merit and is downright shameful. We will vigorously defend this. It’s worth noting that Doug is Ms. Hughes’ third representative in the last six months to raise some variation of these claims which concern events from four years ago, since it apparently took some time to find someone willing to file this bogus case.”
Nellie-Hughes and her lawyers are casting a big net with these claims by referring to other cases that have been filed against Fox.
It is most certainly bizarre that Nell-Hughes carried on with this extramarital rape for 3 years. She never filed a police report. Nor did she seek medical attention for her multiple “sexual assaults”
The preemptive argument is that “no rational female employee would dare report sexual assault by a senior male employee.”
However, there is no explanation as to why she wouldn’t tell her husband who, if like any normal husband, would have taken care of the matter in his own way.
Another oddity-she claims she was raped over the course of 3 years, but her lawyers were fighting to get her removed from the Fox blacklist. If she were to be taken back on board she could bump into her alleged rapist on a regular basis.
Misdirected Feminazi outrage.
It is vital that laws for filing false rape reports toughen up.
Men have lost irreplaceable chunks of their lives due to being accused and/or imprisoned for rape and later proven to be innocent.
The general claim is that only about 2% of all rape cases are bogus.
However, that would still mean that 2 out of 100 men accused will be penalized for a crime they did not commit. However, due to the war on men, feminazis won’t care.
Quite the contrary. Feminazis are thrilled to see high powered conservative men taken down. They’re thrilled to dust off their vagina costumes, or take to the streets bare-chested with duct-taped nipples and screech the P* word in front of innocent children, feigning outrage about men who are “pigs.”
Radical Muslim men who brutalize women and little girls get a free pass. Democrat politicians who sexually abuse children get a free pass.
Women who file false rape claims are not condemned but applauded.
It took decades to make strides to enact laws and policies to help rape victims and victims of sexual harassment in the workplace.
If this trend of personal enrichment and method of targeting political opponents continues, it will make it harder for the courts to take the 98% of valid rape claims and/or sexual harassment seriously.
The women’s movement will be set back decades.
A rise in false rape claims presents huge problems for men in general.
It makes dating a very risky venture.
Men may have to consider having some kind of contract, supporting documentation and witnesses to the agreement before engaging in what they believe to be consensual sex.
It makes the workplace dicey.
If false claims to destroy men’s careers become the norm, it will not encourage men to hire women. This would especially impact a hiring consideration if any one-on-one interaction during the course of doing business would be necessary. One example would be a personal assistant taking notes in the bosses office. And yes, the boss could be a woman.
The feminazis should be furious every time one of these witches files a false report.
But since it seems to only be high powered conservative men who have been targeted, they’re thrilled.
