Early life

Roginsky was born in Moscow, Russia, to Abram and Tanya Roginsky, who were Soviet dissidents of Jewish descent. She was primarily raised by her grandparents until she and her parents were allowed to leave the Soviet Union in 1980. Her grandparents were prohibited from leaving the Soviet Union and became Refusniks for over a decade until they, too, emigrated to the United States in 1990. Prior to settling in the United States, Roginsky and her family lived briefly in Paris and London.

Roginsky was raised in New York City and Plainsboro Township, New Jersey. She graduated from Princeton Day School[7] and was awarded both her B.A. and M.A.[8] from Boston University.

Career in politics

Roginsky was first hired by Emily's List to work on the congressional campaign of Dale McCormick, who was running in a Democratic congressional primary in Maine's 1st Congressional District.[4] Following that election, Roginsky worked for Rep. Frank Pallone of New Jersey, whose campaign she successfully managed against Mike Ferguson.[9]

In 1999, Roginsky was the first woman to manage the New Jersey Democratic Coordinated Campaign, when the Democratic caucus gained three seats in the General Assembly.[10] She subsequently served as the communications director at the New Jersey Democratic State Committee. In 2001, she became the Washington, DC-based Communications Director for Jon Corzine, upon his election to the United States Senate.[4]

In 2003, Roginsky founded Comprehensive Communications Group, a political consulting and public relations firm which has worked on behalf of Fortune 500 corporations, elected officials and non-profit organizations. Senators Cory Booker and Frank Lautenberg and Reps. Albio Sires, Steve Rothman and Frank Pallone have been among the firm's clients.[4]

Since 2005, Roginsky has served on the Board of Directors for the Women's Campaign School at Yale University, a non-partisan leadership program whose goal is to increase the number of women in elected and appointed office. Among the school's graduates are Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.[11]

In 2011, she was hired by Fox News as on-air contributor.[2] She also contributes columns to the FoxNews.com website. In the past, she has also appeared on CNN, MSNBC and HLN.

In 2017, Roginsky filed a lawsuit in the New York Supreme Court against Fox News, Roger Ailes, and Bill Shine, alleging sexual harassment. She settled the suit in December of 201[13]7. Roginsky claimed that Ailes offered her a permanent position on The Five if she would have sex with him, and retaliated against her when she refused.[14] As of April 2017, Roginsky still appeared in news segments on Fox News, despite her active legal claims against the network.[15] Her last day on Fox News was June 30, 2017.
