Yesterday Sean Hannity addressed the sexual harassment charge being leveled at him by Debbie Schlussel. I vaguely remember her being on his show, but wasn’t impressed by her. She wasn’t on much.
Hannity said he would defend himself tooth and nail. He’s right to do that. They are gunning for him. After the O’Reilly debacle, he should watch out. Since this is a single charge against him and because he travels with a large group everywhere he goes – something I saw at a Southern Republican Leadership Conference – I find it hard to believe he was on the move with her.
From what’s coming out, it seems the whole thing has been overplayed by the Fox hating media. The woman wrote on her blog, LawNewz,
“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel, an attorney herself, said. Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.
“He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly,” she said on the radio program. Schlussel later clarified that it wasn’t his hotel room, but rather his hotel. She told LawNewz.com that she did go on the show following the incident, but after that was “banned from Fox News.”
“I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity, I thought he was weird and creepy not someone I liked,” Schlussel said.
The Huffington Post whipped this into a frenzy evidently.
Once they smell blood in the water, the floodgates of scandal open big from the lamestream media. Good for Hannity for fighting.
