The man may be completely innocent.
Fox News’ (?) Eric Bolling, who was suspended this past weekend for allegations of sending three female colleagues pictures of a penis a year ago, is taking time to thank supporters of phallus photography on his personal page.
Overwhelmed by all the support I have received. Thank you
I look forward to clearing my name asap

The story was originally reported by the Huffington Post, along with a dozen sources.
Since Bolling’s suspension, his name is conspicuously missing from the Twitter bio for his Fox News show, “The Specialists.”
A spokesperson for Fox told The Hill that Bolling will be investigated by the Paul Weiss law firm. Paul Weiss is the same firm that investigated former chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, who was ousted from the network just two days after the firm began investigating. Ailes passed away in May.
Ailes, as CEO, apparently fostered an unhealthy environment for women in the Fox News workplace, and there have been multiple sexual harassment lawsuits filed against the company.
Bolling’s attorney gave a statement after the news of his suspension broke.
“Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made,” attorney Michael Bowe stated.
Horrible choice of words.
Of course, you let these things play out, allowing for the investigators to do their jobs, but the purging of Bolling from Fox News social media pages portends a negative outcome.
