According to a report from the Daily Beast's Justin Baragona, a former rising star at Fox News, whose career with the conservative network crashed and burned after he was fired over allegations of sexual misconduct, has found a new home working side by side with Steve Bannon.

Ed Henry, who was unceremoniously dumped after he was sued by a Fox producer over accusations of sexual assault and rape, is now working as a correspondent and "political insider" for Real America's Voice, which includes Bannon and John Solomon, a former executive at The Hill linked to Rudy Giuliani and his conspiracy theories about Joe Biden and Ukraine that eventually led to an impeachment trial of Donald Trump, on its roster.

As Baragona writes, Henry popped in recent weeks on Real America's Voice, which has angered Jennifer Eckhart, the ex-Fox News producer who levied the accusations against Henry.

Addressing Henry's new gig, an attorney representing Eckhart issued a statement to the Beast that stated in part: "It is unfathomable that Real America's Voice has decided to give Mr. Henry, an alleged sexual harasser and abuser, this new platform. This recent hiring decision is yet another example of why so many survivors of abuse are afraid to come forward while their perpetrators are often rewarded in the workplace."

The statement also noted that Real America's Voice previously passed on hiring Eckhart, stating the media outlet "declined to hire Ms. Eckhart after she bravely stood up and filed her sexual assault and rape lawsuit against Mr. Henry."

Baragonanotes that Henry was terminated by Fox on July 1st last year following an investigation into the sexual assault allegations, before adding, "Weeks later, Henry was hit with a lawsuit from Eckhart, a former Fox News reporter and associate producer who alleged he raped her and 'performed sadistic acts on her without her consent that left her injured, bruised and battered with bloody wrists.' The suit also claimed that Henry, who is married, 'groomed, psychologically manipulated and coerced' her into a sexual relationship in which he referred to her as his 'sex slave.'"
