Megyn Kelly, the Fox News anchor, revealed in a leaked excerpt of her new book Settle For More that Roger Ailes allegedly sexually harassed her in 2006.


Ailes, the ousted founder of Fox News, reportedly had a pattern of calling her into his office and making sexual advances. Kelly states he was, “veering between obviously inappropriate sexually charged comments (e.g. about the ‘very sexy bras’ I must have and how he’d like to see me in them) and legitimate professional advice.’’ Kelly’s account claims that Ailes would offer to promote her in exchange for sexual favors, which she denied.

In January 2016, the abuse escalated to the point where Ailes was repeatedly trying to kiss her. When she shoved him away, Kelly alleges, ‘‘he asked me an ominous question: ‘When is your contract up?’ And then, for the third time, he tried to kiss me.’’
