While the harassment charges are only accusations at this point, Bolling is the latest of several Fox News figures to be dogged by such claims.
Bolling, a co-host of the Fox News program "The Specialists", is a vocal defender of President Donald Trump. However, she didn't get a reply from him.
Four different people - outside of the recipients - further confirmed to HuffPost that they had seen the photos in question, while another eight people confirmed that they had spoken to the original recipients about it.
This sexting scandal is that latest in a slew of sexual harassment allegations made against high-profile Fox News employees.
At least ten sources supported the women's claims that several years ago they received the image from Bolling.
Fox News are said to be investigating the allegations against Mr Bolling, who has worked at the network since 2007.
Over the past year, the network has been rocked by multiple accusations of sexual harassment and assault by Fox News and Fox Business executives and on-air talent. He has also appeared as a guest commentator on Fox News shows such as "O'Reilly Factor", "Fox & Friends" and "Hannity".
It's not the first time Bolling has been embroiled in controversy. That suit was settled out of court - but prompted a flurry of new allegations against Ailes. Let's whack the Fox News Channel.
