Former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle recently announced she is leaving the network to serve as vice chairwoman of America First Action, the Trump administration’s preferred super PAC.

“I’ve decided to leave Fox News Channel and dedicate myself full time to joining America First as Vice Chairwoman, campaigning across the country and firmly standing with President Trump,” Guilfoyle tweeted earlier this week.

But new details are emerging that Guilfoyle, who is dating Donald Trump Jr. and will be appearing at campaign events with him to promote pro-Trump candidates, was ousted from the conservative network over sexual misconduct, among other allegations.

“Guilfoyle was informed her time at Fox News was up following a human resources investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior including sexual misconduct,” according to multiple sources who spoke to HuffPost.

Those sources also say Guilfoyle showed pictures of male genitalia to her coworkers and identified the men in those pictures. She regularly discussed “sexual matters” at work and engaged in “emotionally abusive behavior” toward hair and makeup artists employed by the network.

Guilfoyle’s lawyer denied the allegations.

However, Fox has a long history of problems with sexual harassment and abuse by many of its top executives and stars.

Network founder Roger Ailes, now deceased, for decades sexually abused women who were his subordinates. Former prime time centerpiece Bill O’Reilly also sexually preyed upon women and the network paid out millions in settlements for harassment claims on his behalf.

Former host Eric Bolling also left the network as reports surfaced that he had shared photos of his genitalia with women.

Bolling and Guilfoyle were co-hosts on the afternoon program “The Five.”

Bill Shine was a senior executive at Fox News and part of the machinery at the network that helped to cover up abuse complaints. He is now Trump’s deputy communications director.

Guilfoyle has for years been a media ally of the right, regularly dispensing lies and misinformation on air.

No doubt those skills will come in handy in her new position at the pro-Trump super PAC. The Trump team, including figures like Mike Pence, has been at work helping America First Action build up its war chest.

Money from the PAC, which is in part funded by accused rapist and Trump supporter Steve Wynn, will go to candidates supporting the Trump agenda.

With a history of promoting right-wing causes, and her own record of allegedly inappropriate behavior, Guilfoyle should fit right in at her new job with Trump Jr., openly shilling for Trump and pro-Trump Republicans.

#EndorseThis: Lindell Loses It When CNN Says His 'Proof' Is 'Completely Ridiculous'

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is now claiming that some financial institutions no longer want to do business with him because he poses a "reputation risk" as he continues to push former President Donald Trump's false claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

On Friday, January 14, Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon's podcast "War Room" where he claimed "Heartland Financial and Minnesota Bank and Trust are attempting to 'de-bank' him over concerns that they could face fallout related to having him as a client," Newsweek reports. During the broadcast, the two right-wing enthusiasts played an audio recording of what they claim was a discussion between Lindell and a banking official.
