Hannity Sexual Harassment Story CHANGES – Now “Victim” is Saying…

Blogger Debbie Schlussel got her name in the headlines by accusing Fox News superstar Sean Hannity of sexual harassment. It didn’t take long for Hannity to strongly deny the accusations and threaten legal action. And suddenly, Schlussel is changing her tune.

Originally, Schlussel was a guest on the Pat Campbell podcast, where she claims to have met Hannity in Detroit for a book signing and to appear on his radio show. She claimed that he asked her back to his hotel room and when she refused, he yelled at her, and then banned her as a guest on his radio show.

Hannity responded by saying that Schlussel’s claims were “100% false and a complete fabrication.” He said that he had hired a team of attorneys and threatened legal action in response. And now, Schlussel is saying that she actually never accused him of sexual harassment.

“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 said Monday. She does, however, stand by her description of what happened, and said that it happened in the early 2000s. “I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity, I thought he was weird and creepy not someone I liked,” she continued.

While Schlussel now seems to be backtracking, she also said that Hannity’s legal threats against her, which include possibly suing her for libel, are “laughable.” She also said she is considering countersuing him for defamation, as he called her a “serial harasser.” “It’s defamatory,” Schussel said, “Everything I said was true, and truth is an absolute bar to defamation. He on the other hand has a murky record on truth.”

The problem with Schlussel’s defamation claim, though, is that facts at least somewhat bear out Hannity’s description of Schlussel as a serial harasser. In 2010, Schlussel accused Hannity of skimming donations from the Freedom Alliance, a veterans charity, and said that the organization was a “huge scam.” Thomas Kilgannon, the founder and president of the Freedom Alliance, responded to Schlussel’s accusations by pointing out that Hannity has donated huge sums to money to the charity and denied that it was a scam. He said that “the blog posting accuses our friend Sean Hannity of personally benefiting from Freedom Alliance. This is FALSE. Freedom Alliance has never provided planes, hotels, cars, limos, or anything else to Sean. Sean gets nothing from Freedom Alliance except our gratitude for his personal generosity and for all he has done to help the troops and our organization.”

In John Hawkins’ new book, ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in chapter 17 that if you want to know what a person really believes, watch their actions.
