Debbie Schlussel Says Never Sexually Harassed by Sean Hannity

Debbie Schlussel has walked back the allegations she made against Sean Hannity during a radio program last Friday.

From LawNewz:

Debbie Schlussel, a former Fox News guest, appeared on a local radio show on Friday and recounted an incident where Sean Hannity purportedly asked her to a hotel, and when she rebuffed his advances, she claims, she was ostracized by the network star. The story has since gone viral garnering headlines like “Sean Hannity Accused of Sexually Harassing Fox News Guest” in publications like The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post. 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.


“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.


UPDATE 7:53 P.M:

Schlussel contacted LawNewz.com and re-emphasized that she never used the term “sexual harassment” during her initial interview with the radio station. She also clarified to LawNewz her initial allegations against Hannity as it related to the charity and said her claims surround the Freedom Concerts.
Schlussel apparently freaked out when Hannity said he was prepared to sue her.

The Leftist media that splashed Schlussel's story should be giving headlines to the woman's "clarification." They were quick to be part of the mob accusing Hannity. They need to make clear that the woman is not accusing Hannity of sexual harassment.

Alas, like Schlussel, those outlets have reputation issues.
