On Monday, AdWeek reported that Andrew Napolitano, Fox News' chief legal analyst, has been fired in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
"This comes after a lawsuit filed Monday by Fox Business production assistant John Fawcett, who alleges that he was sexually harassed in an elevator by the Judge in 2019," reported A. J. Katz. "In his lawsuit, Fawcett alleges senior execs were aware of the misconduct, but declined to take further action. Fawcett also alleges that Napolitano also harassed other male employees, but HR also declined to investigate those incidents."
The lawsuit also alleged that Fox Business host Larry Kudlow repeatedly made racist and sexist comments.
Napolitano, an outspoken civil libertarian who frequently criticized both President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump, has a history of accusations. In 2020, the New York Daily News unearthed an allegation that Napolitano sexually abused an arson defendant in his court while working as a judge in the 1980s.
Maricopa County refuses Arizona GOP's 'audit' demands -- and mocks its 'never-never land' conspiracy theories
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors rejected the latest subpoena by the Republican-controlled Arizona state Senate.
Jack Sellers, the chair of the board, wrote a letter addressed to senators shortly before the deadline to respond to the subpoena.
"It is now August of 2021. The election of November 2020 is over," Sellers wrote. "If you haven't figured out that the election in Maricopa County was free, fair, and accurate yet, I'm not sure you ever will."
Sellers, a Republican, also blasted the duration of the audit, which began on April 22nd.
"The reason you haven't finished your 'audit' is because you hired people who have no experience and little understanding of how professional elections are run," Sellers wrote. "The Board has real work to do and little time to entertain this adventure in never-never land."
The Board of Supervisors also blasted GOP conspiracy theories while threatening legal action.
"There was no fraud, there wasn't an injection of ballots from Asia nor was there a satellite that beamed votes into our election equipment," Sellers wrote. "Release your report and be prepared to defend any accusations of misdeeds in court. It's time to move on."
The letter was reported by Brahm Resnik of KPNX-TV.
Trump can use the Secret Service to bilk taxpayers for unlimited cash: Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter
Former President Donald Trump has continued charging the United States Secret Service for using his properties -- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold says Trump could theoretically use the Secret Service to bilk taxpayers for as much money as he wanted.
Fahrenthold, who has been tracking Trump's charges to the Secret Service since he left office in January, noted on Twitter Monday that Trump has been charging the Secret Service $17,000 per month to rent a cottage at his Bedminster resort, while also charging the Secret Service nearly $400 per night to rent a single room at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
"In Bedminster, $17K/month is a lot higher than the going rate in the area," wrote Fahrenthold. "At Mar-a-Lago, $396.15 is more than triple the government's per-diem spending limit on hotels in the area, which was $121 in May and June."
A follower then asked Fahrenthold how Trump gets away with charging so much more than the per-diem spending limit, and he replied that the Secret Service does not face such limits.
"They can spend whatever they need to, to stay close to the people they protect," he explained. "Which means Trump can legally charge the Secret Service whatever he wants: the only limit would be his sense of what's excessive."
