This Woman Accused Hannity Of Sexual Harassment. Within 48 Hours, She Changed Her Tune.

On Friday, Debbie Schlussel, a columnist who used to be a far more credible voice in conservative circles, accused Fox News host Sean Hannity of sexual harassment while appearing on an Oklahoma radio show. She said, “He had some event at a bookstore where he signed his book for people standing in line. He asked me to come meet him at this book signing. So I met him there and it was very awkward. He had me up there with him while he signed books and I felt very weird. These people don’t really know me and they didn’t come for me to sign their books. Then I left to get ready for the show, and he said, ‘Why don’t you come back with me to my hotel?’ and I said no, I have to get ready for the show.” She then alleged that Hannity tried to “get me to go back with him to the hotel after the show,” and then wasn’t invited on Hannity’s show in the future after she refused.

What a Train Wreck… More.

  • Don’t worry folks, it’s purely coincidence that 100% percent of the time the sexual abuse allegations are against conservatives, and 0% percent of the time they are against progressives. It’s kind of like elections in North Korea where Kim Jong Un coincidentally gets 99.9% percent of the vote — except even better, it’s 100% percent!

    What a pile of rubbish coming from this woman. Based on her own description (we only have her word that even that is true) there was no sexual harassment. She was asked and she declined and it ended. With the feminist mind-set if a poor guy doesn’t find them attractive and doesn’t ask them out, that is also sexual harassment. Give them a compliment and it is also sexual harassment. Certainly actual sexual harassment does exist with a small number of both men and women, but the feminists have so demeaned the term that one tends to discredit all claims.

    • Two words: mischief charges (with substantial fines or jail time that actually “hurt”, for future deterrence). That sort of mischief, if left unchecked, has already been proven to destroy the lives of many innocent men.

    Debbie Schlussel is a whack job and has been for at least a decade.
    I can’t wait to hear Pam Geller’s take on this. Those two hate each other, but then again everyone hates Debbie Schlussel.
    I was going to post on this last night but thought better of it

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Her last name sounds like a Yiddish word for food poisoning, if there is one.

        And just as Toxic.
        Debbie Schlussel likes to throw around the charge of antisemite at anyone that might have a small disagreement with her over anything.
        Debbie Schlussel: My favorite color is blue.

        Debbie Schlussel: ANTISEMITE!!!

    In the case of Allison whats’hername she too claimed ‘sexual harassment. But if you listen to her complaint what it boils down to is men said vulgar things in her presence. Not TOO her or about her, simply in earshot.

    And they demand that we treat women as big tough strong and self reliant as any man.

    Really? Are they kidding?

    • Alain

      Personally I have hear a lot more vulgarity out of the mouths of women than men. I am old enough to recall when that was not the case, when most women acted like ladies and most men acted like gentlemen. That is no longer the case.

    I seem to recall she had a berth at Town Hall in its early years (ca. 2001), when political blogging was a novelty. I don’t think I’ve read a word by her since about 2004. I haven’t looked at Town Hall in a while. It was always buggy and IIRC, the Heritage Foundation passed it on to Salem Media or some such. What you could glean from Town Hall was that the number of people who could write engaging topical commentary every week is not numerous. The screens the newspaper business made use of to recruit and maintain columnists may have cut some people out it should not have and given some berths they should not have. However, you could see at Town Hall that there wasn’t a large pool of people so capable at the practice that they could write something engaging more than occasionally. Town Hall resembled Phil Spector’s description of record albums: two hits and ten tracks of junk. Debbie Schlussel was one of an ant heap who should have been writing occasionally while employed in some other pursuit. I understand that the substance of her writing grew very curious in later years.

    • She went off the deep end some time ago. Town Hall is improved I think you will find.

      • 2maxpower

        Townhall blows !

        • Brett_McS

          TownHall is great! But then I only read Kurt Schlichter’s columns.

        Have you noticed even since the election that many so-called conservative websites that weren’t neverTrumpers have a stealthy anti-Trump bias?
        Hot-Air and HeatSt come to mind.

  • mauser 98

    where did all the Trump accusers go?

  • Exile1981

    I hope Hanity goes after her liable. Of course even though she rescinded her accusations the left will take it as gospel.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      A libel lawsuit should be coming her way, most definitely.

    • She should still be prosecuted for mischief as well. If a thief steals something and denies stealing, but later rescinds and admits to the truth then he/she is still prosecuted. It’s called “pleading guilty”.

      • Exile1981

        Could she be? She never told her story to police, only on a radio show. Not sure how that would work.

        • Alain

          I think you are correct but she is guilty of liable.

      • 2maxpower

        I am on Debbies side on this. Stop reading into it things that aren’t there. So who is guilty of liable, Is it you, the commenter?

        Hannity did not deny what Debbie said and Debbie did not accuse him of harassment. Below is what Sean put out and it is not a reliable denial. This is police work 101.

        “LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100% false and a complete fabrication,”

        now what Debbie said below.

        “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, who is also an attorney, told LawNewz.

        • Okay, so I admit I didn’t read the article — there are so many cases of militant feminists lying lately that it has become vexatious to read about the same failures of the Justice System and Police for prosecuting them. In other words, I wrongly assumed that the lady made a false complaint to Police or other authorities — which is almost ALWAYS the case, and in such case her actions would in fact be more than libel (written falsehood), or slander (verbal falsehood) which are actionable in Civil Court. It would also be a criminal matter because false complaints to Police are criminal, and would at least incur mischief charges, in addition to any civil action re: libel, etc.

          But I’m calling B.S. on your reference to “Police work 101” — people are innocent until proven guilty, not guilty until proven innocent. Accused men do not have to have a “reliable denial” — the onus is on the lady to prove harassment if that was in fact what she was insinuating. And the definition of sexual harassment does not in fact have “a special meaning under the law” anymore. Depending on the jurisdiction, sexually harassment can mean accidentally bumping a woman’s breast in an overcrowded bar, or simply having a difference of opinion with a militant feminist on any given subject. Or it can mean jumping out of the bushes in a park at midnight and raping a woman at knife-point. Militant feminists only have themselves to blame for the ambiguity, and the Justice System is to blame for embracing the stupidity.

          I’m not.
          She did the equivalent of asking you do you still beat your wife.

          • Yep. It’s like the old AA trick — denial of alcoholism is a sign of alcoholism. But what if you are actually not an alcoholic — are you supposed to lie about it and state that you are an alcoholic? Are you supposed to slander yourself?

            (not to diss AA because I know they do good work — just an observation)

      you will not see a lawsuit from Hannity, he would lose.

      • So if not harassment, then what’s she accusing him of? Attempted consensual fornication? Attempted adultery? Attempted invitation to watch a Fox News report in his hotel room? I don’t get it — if she wasn’t trying to publicly defame him via insinuation that he was somehow engaging in questionable or illegal behaviour, then why mention it at all?

  • andycanuck

    First Murdoch Jr. came for Bill O’Reilly but I was NeverTrump, so I did not care…

    [P.S. Not implying Sean was a NeverTrumper. I know he was on the right side of history unlike the MSM.]

    When you pay out money on frivolous suits you encourage other frivolous suits. If you are innocent then you fight them or you will go broke paying out to the attention seekers.

  • Morticiaa

    What a joke
    She is way too ugly for him to ever invite up to his room
    More the type to take from behind in some alley
    Now that would be almost believable
    All these types are immoral gold diggers
    And make it very bad for legitimately job harassed
    Women who are true victims of these tyoes

  • Morticiaa

    Sean hannity will be a big target as he is a big Trump supprter
