Former Fox host: Roger Ailes used surveillance equipment to secretly watch female hosts get undressed
Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros accused deceased former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes of watching women at Fox News change clothes by placing surveillance equipment in dressing rooms.
According to Axios, the revelations come in the form of a proposed amendment to Tantaros’ sexual harassment lawsuit against the conservative network.
“Ailes had a CCTV system that allowed him to see inside Fox News offices,” the filing says, “most Fox female talent…disrobed daily.”
The news of the CCTV system was first reported by Buzzfeed News.
Tantaros has also alleged that Ailes installed spyware on her mobile phone “that enabled [Fox] to turn on the microphone and camera of the device at will without the knowledge” of the employee.
In a statement, Fox denied Tantaros’ latest claims.
“Fox News moved for sanctions against the lawyer who filed Andrea Tantaros’ original lawsuit and he has since withdrawn. None of the four lawyers currently representing Tantaros in the action signed her new complaint, which she purports to have written herself,” the statement said. “Her outlandish claims lack any factual basis.”
