    Trump nominates Scott Brown as ambassador amid Fox News misconduct allegations – By BRAD MIELKE Apr 20, 2017

    Two weeks after defending former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, calling him “a good person,” President Trump is offering an ambassadorship to a different man mentioned in a sexual misconduct lawsuit against Fox News.

    Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who is also a former Fox News contributor, will be nominated as the ambassador to New Zealand, the White House said today.

    The nomination comes after Brown, a Republican, campaigned for Trump in the general election and aggressively lobbied to become secretary of veterans affairs.

    Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros alleged in a lawsuit last August that Brown made several sexually inappropriate comments to her on set: among them, that she “would be fun to go to a nightclub with,” which she said was delivered “in a suggestive manner.”

    He also allegedly crept up behind Tantaros in the cafeteria and touched her lower waist, causing her to pull away and tell him to stop, she said.

    The allegations were part of a suit Tantaros brought against Fox News and its former chairman Roger Ailes, for what she called “a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency and misogyny.” Brown was not named as a defendant.
