Perhaps this explains the weird behavior by Napolitano during Spygate.  Initially, the Fox News analyst recognized the issues of the Obama FBI and intelligence apparatus spying on their political opposition. Then suddenly, Napolitano appeared to do an about face despite mounting evidence that highlighted the spying issue as accurate.

A lawsuit was filed [pdf available here] claiming that Judge Napolitano was sexually harassing young men at Fox News.  The news group did an internal investigation and fired Napolitano, which seems to indicate the harassment claims were grounded in fact.   It makes you wonder if sketchy Napolitano was under the cloud of blackmail for his sexual improprieties?

(Variety)  – Judge Andrew Napolitano, a legal contributor for Fox News, is no longer employed by the network following allegations of sexual harassment.

In a complaint filed on Monday, a 27-year-old Fox News associate producer alleged that Napolitano has “sexually harassed numerous young male employees during his tenure at Fox News.” The plaintiff, whose name is John Fawcett, claims that he reported Napolitano’s misconduct to Fox News’ human resources department but they did not take any immediate action against him.

In a statement to Variety, Fox News said that upon learning of the allegations, the network “immediately investigated the claims and addressed the matter with both parties.” Napolitano has not appeared on air at Fox News for several months. (read more)
