Fox News' Gretchen Carlson Suing CEO Roger Ailes for Sexual Harassment

Former Fox News correspondent Gretchen Carlson has filed a lawsuit against Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes.

In papers obtained by People, it reads, “Ailes has unlawfully retaliated against Carlson and sabotaged her career because she refused sexual advances and complained about severe and pervasive sexual harassment.”

She’s also filed suit against former Fox & Friends anchor Steve Doocy, saying he “engaged in a pattern and practice of severe and pervasive sexual harassment.”

In the suit, Gretchen also says Roger told “her to turn around so he could view her posterior,” and called her “‘sexy,’ but ‘too much hard work.’”

She is suing for “lost compensation, damaged career path, damage to reputation and pain and suffering damages.” Gretchen claims that Roger retaliated for her denying his advances by firing her on June 23.
