Ex-Professional Baseball Player Lenny Dykstra Guilty of Sexual Harassment?

Harassment can happen in any industry

During the ‘90s, Lenny Dykstra was the leader of a Philadelphia Phillies baseball team that made it to the World Series. Dykstra has since retired from baseball. However, he made headlines earlier this month when Caroline Heldman accused Fox News host Eric Bolling of sexual harassment in a Facebook post. In that same Facebook post, Heldman claims that Dykstra sexually harassed her and another woman six years ago at a Fox News facility in Los Angeles.

What Is This Woman Claiming Happened Between Lenny Dykstra and Her?

According to a New York Daily News article, Caroline Heldman, an Occidental College politics professor who would often make appearances on Fox News as a political commentator, claims that Lenny Dykstra sexually harassed her and a female makeup artist in 2011.

Reportedly, the harassment took place at the Los Angeles Fox News bureau. She claims the sexual harassment was both physical and verbal, including telling her that he gets sexually aroused when she talks politics, repeatedly asking her and the woman doing her makeup to come to a party with him and grabbing her wrist. Dykstra denies the allegations and has threatened to file a defamation lawsuit.
