Former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown is named in the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Fox News by former host Andrea Tantaros. 

In the lawsuit, Tantaros claims that Brown acted inappropriately when he appeared as a guest on “Outnumbered”, including making sexually inappropriate comments about her body and touching her waist. Tantaros says Brown also suggested that she would be "fun to go to a nightclub with."

The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday with the New York Supreme Court, and claims that the environment at Fox News was conducive to sexual misconduct:

Fox News masquerades as defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.

In recent months, other women have finally, and laudably, come forward to reveal Defendant Roger Ailes (“Ailes”) as the sexual predator that he is. However this Complaint is not just about Ailes; it also gives life to the saying that “the fish stinks from the head.” For Ailes did not act alone. He may have been the primary culprit, but his actions were condoned by his most senior lieutenants, who engaged in a concerted effort to silence Tantaros by threats, humiliation, and retaliation

Tantaros’ allegations against the network are the latest in a growing list of lawsuits against Fox News’ CEO Roger Ailes and his associates. Since former “Fox and Friends” host Gretchen Carlson filed a suit against Ailes in early July, 20 women have told attorneys they were subject to Ailes’ harassment.

Brown denies the claims,telling the Globe Tuesday that his interactions with the Fox News staff were always "professional":

In the 3 years I have been working there, I treat all people there the same, whether they be male or female. In addition, I don’t go to clubs.
