The latest sex scandal to rock The Swamp involves accusations made byScottie Nell Hughes against Charles Payne. Not exactly household names to the general public. So why is the left making such a big deal out of it?
1.) Payne is a black man; Hughes is an attractive blond, white woman. That still bugs the hell out of some people.
2.) Payne is a CONSERVATIVE black man; a particular affront to liberals. They’d love to see him go down.
3.) Payne works at FOX News and liberals hate FOX News.
4.) Hughes is a big Trump supporter, and any chance to tie Trump to something negative is a blessing to the left.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Hughes, a political pundit, “alleges that she was coerced into a sexual relationship with Payne under threat of reprisals.”
And based solely on her allegations, Payne was suspended Friday as host of his “Making Money” program by the FOX Business Network.
Payne has vehemently denied the allegations, although he admits to having had a three-year affair with Hughes that ended in 2015. Both are married with children.
Don’t you just hate these he said/she said public spats? I mean, who are we to believe?
Feminists say you always have to believe the woman…unless, of course, the woman is making a claim against a liberal man. Then all bets are off. Still, with FOX’s recent record, most will probably tend to lean towards believing Hughes, right?
Well, don’t jump too quickly. According to a report published by Red Alert Politics yesterday, there are emails!
Back in September 2013, “near the beginning of their relationship, Hughes sent Payne a graphic e-mail in which she discussed a recent sex dream she had involving the two of them in a swimming pool.”
Warning: Salacious material, even if not X-rated, ahead…
According to the email obtained by Red Alert Politics, Hughes wrote (grammar/spelling errors in the original)…
“Do you know what I keep dreaming about.. You and I in the pool… My legs wrapped around your waste and you have me pressed up against the wall of the pool. Skin glistening and smelling of coconut… You thrusting yourself deeper inside with each push… And your fingers grasping each of my cheeks.”
Yowza! Sounds like if anyone was sexually harassed it was Payne!
Red Alert Politics also spoke with some of Hughes’ former colleagues, one of whom referred to the coconut-flavored pundit as a “female predator.”
Also, according to a report in the Daily Mail, Kristina Lee Hall, another Hughes associate, claimed on the record that the cheeky pool girl “was notorious for sleeping with men she thought might advance her career.”
“That is literally her pattern,” Hall said, “to sleep with, do stuff with, to get ahead.”
Unless or until the emails and first-hand/on-the-record reports of woman-scorned Hughes trying to “sleep her way to the top” are denied or proven false, falsely-accused Mr. Payne should be un-suspended by FOX.

Nevada’s #1 Irritator of Liberals and RINOs
P.S. If you haven’t heard about or seen the video clip of Donald Trumppicking up and returning a Marine’s hat after it blew off as the president was preparing to board Marine One yesterday, click here.
This is the sort of thing re-elections are made of. Can anyone in their wildest imagination picture Hillary Clinton extending such a respectful and genuine gesture?
P.P.S. Now that the president has returned to Ameican soil from his YUGELYsuccessful G-20 summit meeting, Sens. “Little Marco” Rubio and Lindsey “Mini-McCain” Graham are back to criticizing him. Like anyone cares.
CNN recently published an in-depth look at how the Las Vegas Review-Journalhas changed in the year or so since Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson’s family bought it.
There is clearly an anti-Adelson bias in the story – featuring lots of sour grapes from former employees – but the funniest part was this…
The reporter, Rem Rieder, solicited comments for the story from liberal blogger and former RJ columnist Jon Ralston, who’s currently employed as editor of an online news blog Citizen Outreach founded back in 2009...
“Ralston,” Rieder wrote, “a longtime Adelson critic who calls the Review-Journal ‘The Adelson News,’ declined to be quoted for this story because his news outlet competes with the R-J.”
Now that’s hilarious for two reasons…
1.) The idea that Ralston’s online blog website “competes with the R-J” is laughable. It’s like claiming a guy who grills hamburgers in his back yard is competing with McDonald’s.
2.) Ralston regularly trashes the R-J on his little local blog and Twitter feed but apparently is afraid to talk to a CNN reporter on the record to its national audience. Not exactly a profile in courage.
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“No matter what else, the Democratic race for U.S. Senate next year (in Nevada) isn’t up to Democratic operatives, national campaign groups, Harry Reid or even Jacky Rosen. The fate of this race is entirely up to Dina Titus. Because if she gets into this primary, she’ll win. Again.” – Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Steve Sebelius
