Racy emails have emerged that were purportedly sent from married analyst Scottie Nell Hughes to the man she has accused of coercing her into a three-year affair, Fox Business host Charles Payne
A series of raunchy emails have emerged, purportedly sent by former CNN and Fox analyst Scottie Nell Hughes to suspended Fox Business host Charles Payne during their three-year affair. The affair lasted from 2013 to 2015.
The emails come amid accusations by Hughes that Payne sexually harassed her and coerced her into the relationship with threats of reprisals.
Payne has denied her characterization of their relationship.
Fox have suspended Payne in light of the allegations, but he says his accuser’s claims are an ‘ugly lie’.
The sometimes lurid emails that were allegedly, sent in September 2013, graphically describe a sex dream 37-year-old Hughes [left], supposedly had about the pair, as well as seeming innuendos, Red Alert Politics reported.
The 56-year-old Fox Business host a married father and grandfather, who was the object of her affections has admitted to the affair, but denies Hughes’ claims that he coerced her into the relationship with threats of reprisals.
The emails, obtained by the site from an unnamed source and supposedly verified by two separate sources, are all purportedly from Hughes to Payne.
The first of them was sent at 10:31 on September 3, 2013 and is titled ‘RE: Another sleepless night.’
It reads: ‘You are going to need every once [sic] of energy if we are ever given the chance of lots of time and no commitments’.
The second, dated six minutes later, graphically recounts a dream that Hughes supposedly has of the pair together.
‘Do you know what I keep dreaming about.. You and I in the pool… My legs wrapped around your waste [sic] and you have me pressed up against the wall of the pool,’ it reads.
‘Skin glistening and smelling of coconut… You thrusting yourself deeper inside with each push… And your fingers grasping each of my cheeks. Holding me to you.’

The third and final email, titled ‘RE: Tell me about the problems,’ is dated September 7, 2013.
It concerned interactions between the pair, according to Red Alert Politics, and read: ‘That is the ideal way to start a Saturday or any day for that matter.’In the emails, Hughes appears to tell Payne [right], about a sexy dream in a swimming pool. The emails also appear to imply weekend sexual encounters.
The website also spoke to Kristina Lee Hall, who worked with Hughes at the Tea Party Network.
Hall who described her fellow Tea Party operative and said Hughes was notorious for sleeping with men she thought might advance her career.
Hall said that on a visit to the Tea Party conference in October 2012, Hughes slept with a party organizer while Hall was in the room.
A month later Hall, at an election-night ‘war room’, she said she walked in on Hughes and a nationally syndicated radio DJ: ‘his pants were undone, half of her clothes were off, his hair was disheveled.’
Red Alert Politics claimed that it spoke to six other sources who either confirmed these details or said they were not surprised by them.
With one of Hughes’ former colleagues, who wished to remain anonymous, calling her a “female predator.”
Payne who hosts the Fox Business show ‘ Making Money’ was thrust into the spotlight on Thursday after it emerged he had been suspended from Fox Business, amid sexual harassment claims.
On Friday his accuser was revealed to be Hughes, who had appeared on Fox and CNN as an unpaid analyst and, latterly, Trump supporter.
The pair – who are both married – had a three-year affair stretching from 2013-2016, which was confirmed by Payne on Wednesday.
But he referred to the claims of harassment on Twitter as ‘an ugly lie I vehemently deny to my core,’ adding: ‘There is a mountain of proof that also proves its a lie.’
The Fox host also said he ‘will fight this like a lion armed with truth. Thanks so much to all those that have reached out in support. #FightingBack.’
It is rumored that their relationship was well-known within Fox News circles, which ten sources confirmed to the Huffington Post.

Hughes is best known for her pro-Trump appearances on CNN during last year, when she made a string of gaffes, including referring to Molotov cocktails as ‘Mazel Tov cocktails’.
But she also worked as an unpaid guest commentator on Fox from 2013-2016 – during which time she struck up an affair with the married father, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Sources said the pair barely hid their illicit encounters, apparently sharing a hotel room at a May 2015 company trip to the Money Show in Las Vegas.
Payne, who was hosting Making Money With Charles Payne at the event, reportedly disappeared with Hughes for ‘hours’ at one point.
And Hughes, who is also married, attended Payne’s birthday party at his home in 2015, where the pair’s behavior reportedly made Payne’s wife uncomfortable.

But she also told her lawyer that she had stayed in the relationship because she thought he would help her land a permanent position at the network, sources told the Times.
Hughes tried to talk about the situation with former head of programming Bill Shine, but to no avail, her lawyer says.
She eventually reported the affair to Fox’s law firm when it ended in 2015, telling them of the threats she had allegedly received.
She says that led to her being blackballed from the show.
