Fresh off their victory last week of silencing Fox News Bill O’Reilly because he likes women, the left has a new target in their sights.
The latest woman to suddenly remember that she was hit on fifteen years ago is talk show host Debbie Schlussel, who accused popular radio and TV host Sean Hannity of behaving inappropriately towards her.
The left-leaning The Daily Beast was quick to issue a story with the headline “Sean Hannity Accused of Sexually Harassing Fox News Guest.”
As best as she could recall, Schlussel said that sometime back in the “early 2000’s” Hannity tried to invite her back to his hotel after a book signing. According to a story in The Blaze Schlussel said during a radio interview Friday with radio host Pat Campbell that Hannity “tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show and he and his executive producer Bill Shine [now Fox’s co-president] treated me horribly.”
However, after the story broke and Sean Hannity threatened to sue, Schlussel attempted to walk back her comment:
I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that. I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity — I thought he was weird and creepy, not someone I liked.
Unlike Bill O’Reilly, who remained largely silent when he was accused of sexual harassment, Sean Hannity made it clear that he would defend his reputation when he released the following statement:
LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100% false and a complete fabrication. This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation. The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with.
Just like the parade of women who came out of the woodwork in the final month of the 2016 campaign to accuse Donald Trump with all sorts of unproven and unsubstantiated accusation of sexual harassment, these latest accusations come with no proof of events that occurred many years ago.
