Roger Ailes is gone. O’Reilly’s gone. Is Hannity next?
Hard to say. Now that there is blood in the water, the sharks are coming out.
But this shark seems to revel in the attention it’s getting her.
And it’s not the first time that she’s made outlandish and verifiably false statements about Sean Hannity.
On the Pat Campbell Show, Debbie Schlussel accused Sean Hannity of inviting her to his hotel room in Detroit years ago.
Hannity denies any such thing.
Debbie Schlussel said the married primetime anchor invited her back to his hotel in Detroit after the pair met at a book signing.
After the conservative political commentator turned down the father-of-two’s alleged advances, she claims she wasn’t invited back on his show.
Schlussel also said Hannity, whose show draws an average of more than two million viewers a night, got angry when she turned ‘redhead’ and claims the veteran broadcaster asked her ‘creepy’ questions about her pants size.
In an interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, she said: ‘This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity.’
Hannity denied Schlussel’s allegations and accused her of seeking attention in a statement to DailyMail.com on Monday.
‘LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100% false and a complete fabrication,’ wrote Hannity.
‘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. This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary, including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric. My patience with this individual is over.’
He went on to say: ‘I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.
‘In this fiercely divided & vindictive political climate I will no longer allow slander and lies about me to go unchallenged, as I see a coordinated effort afoot to now silence those with conservative views. I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American.’

Unfortunately for Schlussel, the internet doesn’t forget.
She is a fabricator and a prevaricator that purveys slanderous tales to garner Media attention.
She’s like this:
She seems to really have a beef with Sean Hannity.
Back in 2010, she accused Hannity of using Freedom Alliance as a scam to live large. She made outrageous statements about expensive hotels, private jets, and fleets of SUVs.
The charity itself stepped up and disproved it. He paid all his own expenses and was one of the largest single donors for that cause.
With two big names from Fox knocked off, so soon after Trump’s inauguration, amid the accusations and counter-accusations of Fake News and journalistic bias, you don’t think this could be just an attempt to silence the one TV presence that blows the whistle on the Left’s sins, do you?
Nah, this couldn’t POSSIBLY be politically motivated.
All those chumps that made fun of Pence for not being alone with someone of the opposite sex?
Doesn’t seem like such a stupid policy now, does it?
Or maybe it’s just Schlussel trying to resurrect her dying career.
But wait! There’s more!
Now that Debbie Schlussel has seen her name in headlines all over the place, including The Daily Beast and HuffPo, she’s backtracking…
She’s now claiming (after Hannity said he’s hired a team of lawyers,) that she would never accuse Sean Hannity of sexual harassment.
Now, 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.
“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, an attorney herself, said. Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.
“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.

Do you think The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post are going to cover that tidbit?
