First She Accuses FOX News Anchor of Sexual Harassment. Now, She’s Suing An MLB Star

on

I’m getting the feeling this woman either thinks she’s INSANELY hot, she’s bat-sh*t crazy, or she’s just looking for a quick way to get famous. Maybe… it’s all three?!

Caroline Heldman, an associate professor of politics at Occidental College in Los Angeles, has another sexual harassment charge, but this time, she’s accusing former MLB All-Star and World Series champion Lenny Dykstra.

This, after she accused FOX News host Eric Bolling of sexual harassment. Bolling is currently suspended from the network as the claims are investigated.

Saturday, Heldman wrote in a Facebook post that  Dykstra made unwanted sexual advances while she was a guest on FOX News.

“On March 20, 2011, Lenny Dykstra persistently asked me to a party and told me that he gets ‘sexually aroused when I talk politics.’ He also harassed the make-up artist who was curling my hair at the time.”

According to Heldman, when she and the make-up artist turned away Dykstra’s advances, he got confrontational and physical by grabbing her wrist, adding that Dykstra “seemed high” during those moments.

“I’m a trained martial artist, and it took a lot of self-control not to respond to his physical violence in kind. Instead, I broke the wrist grab and told him to leave.”

Surprisingly though, Dykstra didn’t outright deny the allegations when asked about them, telling Philly.com while he doesn’t remember Heldman specifically, he didn’t necessarily doubt her claims saying:

“She’s just one of many, dude. She got to get on the space shuttle.”

Dykstra says Heldman was most likely seeking more publicity at his expense, but did shockingly admit attractive women who talk politics were “sexually arousing” to him. Heldman responded:

“Mr. Dkystra is absolutely wrong that my coming forward is about getting attention. This is about using my voice to stand in truth on behalf of women and men who have faced similar circumstances and are not able to come forward.”

Dykstra, 54, has been a frequent guest on FOX News and FOX Business typically to promote his investment company, Nails Investments. Dykstra was a center fielder for the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets, winning a World Series with the Mets in 1986. Dykstra was sentenced to house arrest back in May 2011 after a bankruptcy fraud indictment.
