Christine O'Donnell makes potentially damaging charge against Piers Morgan after interview walkout
Christine O’Donnell may have created a furor by walking off the Piers Morgan interview show on CNN Wednesday night, supposedly when Morgan asked her opinions on gay marriage and the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell”. Morgan claims that O’Donnell took the attitude that a guest could control what she is asked on a show. But the Los Angeles Times reports that O’Donnell claims that Morgan was sexually harassing her with questions hinging on matters like masturbation. The link is here.
Corbett B. Daly has a similar story on CBS news, where the harassment was considered “borderline”, link here.
O’Donnell has said she takes a libertarian position on gay rights, to leave it up to private and local interests.
For Morgan, the problem is going to be that the concept is defined in the eye of the “victim”.
When I think of Christine O'Donnell, I think of actor Chris, who has turned forty and looks it in "A Little Help" (movies blog, Aug. 6).
