Sean Hannity says embattled Democrat Senator Al Franken screamed endlessly at the Fox News host until security officers stepped in.
Here’s what Hannity told his listeners on Thursday:
“You know, I have an experience, look, obviously it’s not like what you guys went through. One day I went down to the green room at the Fox News channel and Barry Farber, who you know is one of the great radio pioneers and I went to see him. It was in the Hannity and Colmes days. I’m trying to have a conversation with Barry Farber and Al Franken is in there screaming at me and I’m like alright I don’t want to talk to you, I’m here to see my friend. Finally it gets to the point that I can’t even have it and I said alright Barry good to see you my friend, God bless you, give him a hug and walked out. [Franken] is screaming at me, following me and the halls of Fox are filled with security guys and literally he would not stop. They called the code and then security literally surrounded this guy.”
Franken is being accused of sexually harassing not one, but two women. Los Angeles anchor Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of kissing and groping her without consent when they were traveling on a USO tour in 2006.
According to Tweeden, “He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.”
The second accuser is Melanie Morgan of Media Equalizer.
Yes, it’s true. I was stalked and harassed by Al Franken. I will have details @MediaEqualizer shortly,” tweeted Morgan.
