As we reported just this morning, Sean Hannity has been accused of sexual harassment by former Fox News guest, Debbie Schlussel. Today Hannity issues a strong statement denying her claims, calling her a “serial harasser” and vowing to retain the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action.”
Well it seems she got the memo.
Per LawNewz, In an interview with LawNewz.com on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity. While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition.
“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.
Yeah, weird and creepy and not someone I liked. Gosh, that sounds a lot like YOU honey.
On Schlussel’s blog, she has garnered a reputation for making sensational statements, including calling Robin Wiliams “selfish” for committing suicide.
Let’s hope this crap gets put to bed quickly. So we can get back to reporting REAL news like how Donald Trump is in Russia’s back pocket after they won the election for him.
Anybody else getting sick of this bovine excrement?
